photoblog image Life through my rear view

Life through my rear view

Took this photo while driving for my friends grandmothers funeral. Badagry is so beautiful, and as I always say, 'DO NOT SHOOT AND DRIVE' only for the stuntmen like me ;-), hoping to go there soon with the Lagos people on a photowalk. Read on:

Looking through my rear view mirror was like looking into the past, once you've gone past something, even if you go back it may never be the same. I was on my way to a burial; the lady had lived a long and fulfilled life, a great grandmother she was. A reminder that we are here for just an appointed time and memories of all the loved ones I lost came flooding in. Driving towards her made me reflect, I had no regrets, non whatsoever in the life I had chosen to live. But from that day, it was more about enjoying each moment and cherishing each person, even the simple smile you get from a passerby as a way of saying hello meant something to me. I am here to learn, to grow in my path through life, work, partnership, motherhood and especially my love for photography. This is the only medium I have to stop time, capture things exactly as they are (Without the additions of PP that is). This particular photo means a lot to me and I will use it as i reminder that life is too short to let anything get in the way. I suggest the same for any of you that takes the time to read this. Enjoy it!
