N.J.C. WORKS.

It's always pleasing to find fellow female street style photographers in this typically male dominated world.

She's Iju but her brand is N.J.C. stands for New Jerusalem Creations, a testament to the root of her faith.

She's hardworking and clearly passionate about her craft.

Found out it's her birthday.

I'm posting this in the hope I get invited over for some cake :)








KESSIANA.

Another worthy shot from my lad.


INTRODUCING...

My 11 year old lad, Seni comes street style hunting with me from time to time.

I gifted him my Canon 1100D when I got an upgrade.

I asked him to find his own eye and shoot.

I must admit, he's been doing a pretty decent job thus far; his work will be featuring here from time to time.

I'm a proud Momma, what can I say?

Here's a photo he took of blogger, Temi Otedola at Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2016.

MAXIMUM MINIMALIST.

It took a while but I eventually got to appreciate that sometimes the supposed effortless "minimalist" style may actually be a well thought out outfit with meticulously chosen accessories.

It's nice to see basics executed so well but still able to exhibit some kind of unflashy sleekness.

And that pixie cut? So weather appropriate.

No frills here but we love it.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY.

It's a great day to be a woman.

Always a great day, frankly.

And in honour of same, here are some groups of fine international women I've photographed in recent times.

WATERSIDE IKOYI.

At the weekend, I was at the Waterside, Westwood Hotel, Ikoyi.

It was cool and practical, with just the right dose of fancy to make for a great evening out with friends.

If you're about Ikoyi, you should try it out. For drinks, for food, for ambience and for style.

SMILE BACK.

As you would imagine, as I took her photos, I had to smile back.

Infectious vibe.

Cheers.




TATOOED.

I've been known to be EXTRA averse to pain.

Back in University, everyone was getting additional ear piercings because...youth. I went along with my tribe of "wild and free" friends and I just baulked at the thought of the stinging pain, and ran away. Far away.

Now tattoos...I could never.

I do admire a person that can.



COMFORT IN TRADITION.

The traditional male African attire is timeless and lucky for the generations of men gone and those to come, African outfits integrate comfort and tradition quite perfectly.
