photoblog image Aso-ebi

Aso-ebi

What stands out in most weddings are the outfits.....asoebi....showing alliegance to the groom or the bride. From the colour, you can tell who the guest is related to. The yoruba probably started the tradition and other tribes have followed suit. Now I have to spend over a 100 dollars each time a friend gets married. Therefore, I have to cut down the number of frends I have till we are all married..:) :)

FABULOUS colours - great scene, love the little stories that can be found, like the lady crying into her hankerchief, the fan appearing, the way the two ladies in blue towards the left are discussing something , the lady on the far right appearing quite lost - and all those little stories tied together with those amazingly vivid colours. It's a great picture
E Etomi: Thanks Idefix! There are lots of stories in wedding pics. Thats why its so interesting to capture the images

Dang! I am about to jump into that frame to steal whatever asoebi I can get my hands on! Cutting down on friends doesn't sound like a bad idea, what you need to remember though is there will then be christenings, naming ceremonies, anniversary parties... smile
E Etomi: Oh, Lord! I better start lobbying for a promotion.

Beautiful colors. Are the women in blue brides maids?
