Photo of the day!

These pictures were taken by your truly as we entered the City of David, in Jerusalem. I couldn’t resist the urge to capture these beautiful views. The splashes of colours are just too irresistible for me.

Do have a peek and tell me what you think 😉 My attempt as a #newbietravelphotographer .

Yellow Pops out, on the menu tonight!

Welcome to my Kitchen. I made something sumptuous for dinner tonight. We love Boli- Roasted Plantain, In my house. Boli is a common street food/snack in Nigeria. It is so delicious and really filling. Most times it is eaten with nuts(Groundnuts).  This evening,I added a twist to my roasted plantain dish.

I made vegetable soup along with it. I was fascinated by the yellow popping that I had to capture it.

Here is my second entry on Pop and Color!

Join my dinner table 😉

High Definition Solitude -Photo101

The theme for today’s Photo101 is Solitude and the rule of third. With the excitement of the newfound baby HD Sony. I stepped out of the house to catch me some fun with the Camera.

Check the little animals I found all alone in a world of their own. I tried to play with some colour separation, I am a fan of Black/White. I used it with the birdie theme.

D.I.Y Camera clicks away.

I have always been fascinated with the world of photography, One of my out-of-box-goal for this year is to enroll under someone to learn the art of photography.

I believe in the power of the camera lens, it can produce magical moments with any objects.  After Registering for Photo101 on blogging -U, I tried as much as possible to get myself a better phone so that at least I can use the phone camera to do the course. I can’t afford to buy a good camera now, so much on budget plan.

I know my hubby bought an HD Sony ZEISS lens a while back, but we hardly use it, except for my son-Gods wonder who uses once in a while to record himself sing or talk-He likes to do presentations like that.

So this morning I search for it, found it and I have been messing around with it all day! I am the only one at home so I have been climbing on the gate to get angles for shots.. what Photo101 will cause ehn!

I ended up taking some shots of playing around with the camera, and I thought to myself, let me look for a USBcable and try to connect with my laptop maybe I will be able to get it uploaded on my laptop.

Lo and behold, I got the pictures uploaded on my laptop and now here they are:

This colourful flower is planted in my house- I can’t remember the name, but I hear its medicinal.

I took a horizontal shot with the camera. I love the yellowish details as it pops up in  the picture.

 

DSC01616[1]

This is the entrance to my apartment, My aim was to capture the Iron barricade protecting the glass door. 😀

This last shot was taken from a vertical angle.

Lesson learnt:

Don’t be afraid of doing something new, even when it seems you don’t have a clue. You passion and desire will help you find a way through it.

Now I am going to be carrying this HD camera all about town. Photo101 just got pimped. 😀

Water has no Enemy

A famous music legend in my country, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, sang a song many years back

Omi o lota o

Water e no get enemy

Translation: Water has no enemy.

Water is an essential part of life, all over the world in almost all works of life water like air, is second nature. We drink it, we cook with it, we clean with water. We do everything with water.

Can you Imagine life without water for hours?

Today’s photo prompt is about Water and its Orientation. I was almost giving up on the task when I suddenly realize that I took some pictures a while back and water scene was my theme.

The splash of the water on the rock and the sound made this particular pose beautiful for me.

 

And then on one of the holidays, My sons took some swimming lessons, I captured that memory with my phone camera.

My Street,my hood!

It’s Day 2 of photo 101, I really need a good camera before this class is over!

In the meanwhile, I will make do with what my phone camera can produce :). It’s been a long day with no electrical power supply, that’s my Lagos story for you there. Well, I got someone to fix the generator and now I can settle down and do some work….at last.

I did this task with my son, I ask him to take a walk with me down the street and these are the shots we came up with.

Enjoy my street, my hood 🙂

That's my son posing in the background.
