Cultured in Culture, or The Crowd – My people, or Standing out “with” the crowd or so many other titles I could have given this post looking at the photos my sister took of me on holiday in Freetown.
The idea to do this shoot was borne out of a strong desire to capture Freetown or even the people in a way that is very unassuming and unrehearsed. I had no desire to take photos at the plush side of town whether along the peninsular where you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world or indeed on the beautiful hills to the west of town. Government Wharf itself has a long and interesting history but I won’t go into it now. Partly because I do not know much of the history but yeah lets just leave that along shall we lol. So I will leave that to the history buffs out there to dissect.
Now where was I? oh yeah the reason for shooting at the Wharf. I personally think the Wharf represent the true hustle and bustle of Freetown in a way very few places do. It shows a people with unique individual stories that come together for a common purpose. The purpose of buying or to selling, rendering a service or solicit one, to see or to be seen. To chisel Continue reading Cultured in Culture | Government wharf, Freetown→
Jump right in. Yes, go on, jump in and see what you are made of. Or are you scared? Can you swim? Is the water too deep for you?
Ok first of all, these photos were taken in January 2016, in Barcelona and it was an impromptu shoot. The plan was to get to W Barcelona and do a couple of shoots around the pool for a spring campaign I was working on. The minute we got there, I kind of knew I wanted the pool or rather the water in the pool to be an integral part of a shoot. That very moment, I decided that I have to get into the pool fully dressed.
Guessing the reaction I was going to get from the photographer, I kept my plans quiet until the very end. All throughout the previous shoots this idea occupied my mind and the more I thought about it the more it became more than just a shoot to me. The idea became quite symbolic as it would signify where I was in my life.
Now fast forward to the point where I was fully dressed in my suit and standing by the poolside when the photographer (who is now my girlfriend) asked me the question “where are your shoes?”. I took a deep breath and said to her I don’t need them as I will be getting into the pool. She took a long look at me Continue reading Jump right in→
Budapest is one of those European cities that is sure to leave a lasting impression on your mind once you visit. The sumptuous traditional cuisine known as Goulash, welcoming hot baths, historic architecture, and its unique chain bridge are a few things amongst many that will leave you wanting for more. Budapest is the capital of Hungary. It is divided into two half by the Danube river with Buda on one side and Pest on the other. This great city is said to attract over 4 million tourists a year from all over the world. With its extensive world heritage sites, you can see why so many people visit this city.
I would be doing this beautiful city a disservice if I should even attempt to do a detail write up about it. So for this reason, here is Budapest in pictures.
Every now and then I like to blog about things other than fashion and this is one of those times. I know I know you all came here to read about how I put my outfits together but I need you all to lend me your eyes and your minds for five minutes so I can talk you about the importance of believing in yourself and having faith
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” ! Corinthians 13:13 – There you have it, love wins all the time, but allow me to talk a bit about faith today.
As you guys know I have recently visited Croatia, specifically I went to Dubrovnik. You have to visit Dubrovnik to get a full idea of just how beautiful it really is. When you get there, and I really urge you to go there, the best place to get a bird’s eye view of the historic old town and its surroundings is at the top of the Srd hill (it’s a mountain, clearly me and the Croatians define things differently) . I kid you not when I say the views are breathtaking. On one side of Continue reading To Jump or not to Jump – A matter of faith→
