The world through Baba Agba's Eyes.

Our people say:
Yoruba: Arúgbó ṣoge rí; àkísà-á lògbà rí.
Eng: The old person was once a dandy; the rag was once in fashion.-Yoruba Proverb.
I take a lot of pictures. So, you can imagine the frustration I feel when my camera starts to act up. Because of this, I decided to get a new camera which would meet up to my demand. Does anyone have first-hand knowledge of the kind of camera that would take clear pictures and enable me carry out my personal photography? Please would you be kind to let me know? I would like to hear from you. Thank you. 'Old Faithful' served me well but its time to get something better. Here's an example of 'old faithful's' capacity.

On a related note:
I stumbled across a Nigerian youth’s website . To say that I was awed is to say the very least. I was struck by the smoothness of the music that played off the site, probably because its the type of music I find refreshing. However, his photography amazed me. It was very beautiful and pure. Seeing that I love pictures {I take A LOT of pictures} and I consider them  vital pieces of memory, it is no wonder that his website was beautiful. His name is Baba Agba and he calls his website ‘THE WORLD THROUGH MY EYES’. This is to enterprising  youths and photography!
Here we go:

And, some refreshing music by K'naan. Waving flag was re-made speacially for the world cup, SA 2010. I like both the old and new versions a lot. Here's the World Cup version.
