I hope you all are doing okay today. I must announce oo! I’m finally Done with my internship and I can’t be more excited, now I actually have time for things I barely have time for. E.g this blog, my natural hair blog, trying to open a minimal online store for the #vintageVibes collection and my natural hair products line.
Back to business.
So remember the previous post where I shared with you guys the pictures from my collaboration with Roqeeba which you can out check here and my new camera (the Samsung NX300) which You can also check out here,i featured Aliyah.
I met her during our shoot in Surulere with Roqeeba immidatly we arrived at Adelabu, and she stopped to ask
Aunty, are you taking pictures with the camera?
I was so surprised, I was like ‘yes I am’ and with so much excitement in her eyes she said
Please snap me
I was super excited because she was going to be my first muse since I recently just got the camera And I admired her courage.
After taking a few shots of her, we were curious to know where she was coming from and heading to on a Saturday afternoon selliNg Pomo and she said,
I live in pako and I’m going to aguda now.
Roqeeba was shocked because the places she mentioned were of far distances. I felt really torn to see such a young girl not even up to 15 years hawking on the street, not like it was my first time, though.
We asked her if she had eaten and she replied
so we had to find a little something to give her, after she left our presence, I just couldn’t stop thinking about her and it made me wonder
Have i been grateful enough?
This child has been on the street hawking for hours trying to help sustain her family. And I know no mother or father would want to see their child hawking but the situation of this country Is just too terrible to sit in a position and expect to make a living. People are really suffering in nNigeria and I really hope till will change for the better.
we asked her what her name was and she said
such a beautiful name that is.
Her story is quite similar to that of Jumoke the bread seller girl, if only i was TY-BELLO this girl too will just blow lol!
All of these pictures were taken with the Samsung nx300 which you can check out in the link above. I think I’m actually getting the hang of this camera and am so loving it.
I hope you enjoyed this post and i really hope you can drop your comments in the box below. Let me know what you think.
