City Watching Nº2: Train Hypnosis

This is the result of playing with the time lapse settings. I saw no point in throwing these clips away even though I can’t fully explain my point in taking them.

You know how it goes: one very last morning, suitcase packed, checked in, and all that… so grab the camera and zoom out of the door…

Another Friday

This is one of those pre-weekend walkabouts. You know the moment when everything’s done that can be done, and it’s now time to get out and relax…

Abuja Diary 10: Just Strolling
