THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE BEAUTIFUL.

In my sojourn as a street style photographer, 99% of the time, I meet amazing people who make it such a breeze to do what I do.

The other 1% are sometimes so unpleasant, they've made me consider laying down my arms. Last weekend I bumped into a social-media familiar face. Let's call her Bukky K-W.

Her style was interesting enough to make me smile at her and gesture that I'd like to take a few shots.

Now, make no mistake. I am completely understanding of those who'd rather not be photographed. It's not the easiest thing to permit a complete stranger to invade your imagery space. 

HOWEVER!...

The rudeness displayed by Ms. Bukky K-W was unwarranted. 
Hand in my face with an expression like stone. Sigh...
Like my fellow Nigerians say..."Sista bhet why?"
A simple "Please don't take my photo" and I'd have stood down. 
Aborted mission. 
Moved on.

Enough of that.

I've met them all, the good, the bad and the downright beautiful.

Let's focus on the good and beautiful...like my style subject who's easily at the top of the 99% pleasant people I've had the honor of photographing.

Cheers.
