I like the way this shot draws the eye in. The detail on the texture in the foreground is stunning. Fantastic image. Where was this taken?
Jide Alakija: Thanks Mo. Taken on a beach somewhere in Lagos. I can't remember the exact beach.

I agree with Mo, the textures are good and I like the way the focus falls off but not too much

I am getting of this silly blog jare
Jide Alakija: Oh my bad! Forgot to respond to the silly fan! Yes you were right, it's the life of a Young Photojournalist! Now who's the gimp?
