CANDID PICTURES

Since I am fast becoming a photo journalist [if I may say so myself], I decided to share some of the stuff my camera picked up. Blame the camera for any errors and not me please!



I could not decide very well from afar if trully the truck carried so many people, so when I got a better view, I went "waoh, this is serious".


Not that I have not thought of joining this kind of truck myself. It was bad one day that I had to stay at the bus stop forever and I was hoping for just any truck to offer help. Hmmm but seriously this kind of transporation is tough!


That was FESTAC office of the Nigerian Immigration Services. Hmmm, to apply and collect a passport became a very tasking job!



This cat was on the very top of one of the immigrations officers A/C. A homeless kitten may be and I could not even reach where the kitten was!
*******************************

See what the camera decided to focus? A cat fighting it out with a bag. The cat was eating something inside the bag and that was all that matters.


Scofield in my wardrobe! Scofield helping out to type or rather to sleep! LOL



I went to the Computer village Ikeja to buy stuff last Thursday and there was environmental sanitation going on I saw a group of people in about 3 different buildings so close to each other doing sanitation of the mind. The buildings were so close that I wonder why not have just one place for the prayer or the preaching and again I felt like asking if they remember to do the environmental sanitation before they start the mind sanitation! LOL
