Phew! After a long day and long wedding, I'm finally back in town for another 5 days then out again for another one up North. How was your weekend? I hope you all are enjoying the sun where ever you are.

On Thurday before I set off to Bristol, I met up with two photographers who were leisurely photographing an event at The Scoop next to the Mayor's office. I've been looking for patterns recently to photograph and haven't been as successful in finding good ones that reflect what I call the "Alakija" shot. This particular one is not an original shot in that I've seen it been done before. I thought I'd make my own take on the shot by presenting it a bit differently.

Cool perspective. I love the graceful lines. Black and White is the perfect choice for this.
I have never seen such a shot, so it's unique to me. I love the texture in the middle of the circle.

This I really like. I wish I could nail this effect myself.
