Beautiful imperfection

 

red block by Tolu Oluwapojuwo

 Imperfection as it were

We don’t feel comfortable 

When it comes our way

But it appeals to our creative minds

Because its beautiful 

As long as it doesn’t hurt

It takes time to be perfect

It takes years most times

But it pays to be perfect

Though we might not experience it quickly

Accept your imperfection

Then you are set for perfection

Then the journey will be easier 

And sometimes faster

When we accept who we are

There is Beauty in imperfection 

#Commercial bike seriesMost local and road side “pick-up” or “drop-off” parks in nigeria have one thing in common. You always see commercial bike riders waiting for potential customers or dropping someone at the park.

In this image, a woman is loading her goods on a bike after dropping off a cab from the farm. She is probably taking the goods to her shop for sale to the end users.

Walking into my frame

  
An aged security man usually called “Olode” in Yoruba language was looking around a recently burnt truck in amazement and he walked just into my frame.

Underage hawkers during school hours

  
While on my normal personal Photowalk today in Papalanto, Ogun State this afternoon, I sighted so many underage hawkers roaming about with different goods for sale during school hours. I felt burdened and questioned why a 12 year old will abscond school. But to my surprise, one of them I chatted with said he loves working than schooling. Another said he lost his parents and had to help his guardian in her business to raise funds for school fees. Among the ones I saw today are these beautiful four I like you to see. They need your help.
