Photography 101-Water

Our great Afrobeat King, Fela sang “Water e no get enemy”.
Meaning that, ‘Water is a friend to all and accepts everybody. Whether to Life or to Death, it delivers on its promise.’

In Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria we have an adage that says “Water alone washes dirt, dirt does not wash water”. It is against this backdrop that I present to you the fountain, filled with stones and one being prominent. I’m not sure the significance but I know the BIG one could only signify God or the main one (the leader), as this fountain is resident in a church.

As a believer, water is required during baptism, and with the word, one comes into new birth.

...a fresh slate or paper is a delight to behold, it practically beckons to me...begging to be utilized! With eyes that see and appreciate beauty in the midst of a crazy scenery...hands swift to pen what my 'wonder-filled' mind conjures! My name is Frances
