Growing up as as an African, i have discovered that there’s so much to live for, so much i owe my land! I can’t imagine myself  coming in a different colour other than black, in fact, if life were to be a human being, i’m quite sure its skin colour would be black  because ‘Life itself is not fair’. As an african, imagine how you had so much fun while growing up; the tales by moonlight (is that possible on a winter night when the temperature is below zero degrees? definitely not!) #JustSaying

These are some of the Pictures i took when i started out (of course some are recent). You can notice the changes in the signature *smiles* … I can probably tell which of these pictures you think is the best..Yes! that one! You couldn’t have guessed that i took that picture with a Kodak Easyshare!! (point and Shoot) Though i use a DSLR now. Well That’s to tell you that the equipment you use doesn’t matter as long as you have an eye for detail and are ready to explore your creative ability. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to get the latest Canon or Nikon on ebay!
