photoblog image My dear shoes.

My dear shoes.

Oh mi dear shoes,

u tread naija, on unpaved roads and muddy streats of oja (market)

i pounded you on uneven london pavements, hustling chasing after overdue payments.

u helped me "break the ice" with the ladies when they pay you a compliment, not that i aint confident!

although u've gone as much mileage with me as my car, i will still love you, even if you don't make it with me to my next trip to the cocktail bar.

I shot this yesterday  around 4.am in the morning, came in from work, took them off put em on mi travelling bag and used the bedside lamp as lighting.  I just wanted to put up somethang creative and NEW.
