Makoko Boy

This is from my two days in Makoko...A slum in the centre of Lagos Metropolis

I was going for a very rugged feel in this shot and I think the way I've post processed it reflects that. Do you agree?

I absolutely love this Jide! It's just beautiful! But are you sure that's a boy? I think it's a girl.
