The covid-19 brought despair and frustration to me as a business man who operated a cyber cafe in akanu ibiam federal polytechnic unwana. After few weeks of staying at home due to no work as a result of the covid-19 break, i thought of what i can learn with the break that can also fetch me money that period. photography came to mind and i registered for the class and from then, i have been practicing photography as a side hustle. As a young person, I pay attention to little things that might not matter but I try to pick up the little things and get value from them. This photograph i attached to this contest post, was inspired by a little child who came by, while I was having a photo session with one of my clients in October, 2021. She sat at a corner observing us and making her own pose even when I wasn't focusing on her. She continued this until she got my attention. Thoughts of ignoring her came to mind and thoughts of making her smile also came to mind and I was like how well can I make her smile... I called her, gave her some shots and also carried her and took few shots with her. One thing came to mind after this experience ; Most times we see what we love and admire and probably can't afford them at the moment. We show our interest in such stuffs and nobody cares or looks our way and we are faced with the choice of giving up or pressing forth. The little child was in such situation but she pressed forth and never never gave up. She kept on making efforts till she got noticed and had a free photo session with us. so sweet right? Narrow this down to our everyday life, connect the dots. While waiting for good things to happen to us, make efforts towards it. it is just a matter of time and the universe will smile on us. Thanks.
