Okay I couldn't resist. I found a connection that was half decent and did some little photo processing in the Internet cafe.

Here is something I was able to capture whilst away. I went on a photo walk with a friend around the Lagos and got some new material for my portfolio.

This is a priceless image. Wonderful composition, the aged door and stone step, contrasting with the colourful footwear and clothes.

The moment is precious, the surrounding frames really well to include the textures of the walls. However I think it's that smile sneaking out under the kids hands the makes this photo.
