wait do u guys do the breaking of kolanut in ur tradition!!! MEN THAT IS PROMINENT IN IBO TRADITION O!!!! very cool im lovin this!!!!
hey etomi,

i absolutely love this shot. the colors are amazing...so crisp and sharp. i really love the symbolism and culture that lies behind the shot. between the slavery theme and the nigerian wedding, i have learned so much...in addition to getting to check out some great photos.
You know I began to wonder why the kolanuts where looking so artificial..This is a magnificent cake and its a luvly picture too Etomi. But whats up with the wedding scenes all of as sudden? Are you trying to pass a message across?
Ko yo oh. Etomi
Do' oh.
Yum !
I'd like to taste it ! smile
