photoblog image Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day

On October 1, 1960 Nigeria gained its independence from the UK, and now consists of 36 states and the federal capital territory.

I love my country so much! The future is always bright in the faces of the youth.

Happy Independence day Nigerians, lets continue to strive to make things better. WAZOBIA!

Happy independence day my fellow Nigerians
Very artsy. I like how you did this tribute to your flag. The face is a great choice - the youthfulness, the hope that it seems to exude. Wonderful, really wonderful.

These children are adorable.

I like the idea but not the result. I think painting the flag on his face (to look like a football fanatic . . .) might have been better. There are Photoshop face painting tutorials, believe it or not. Here is one, in case you are interested.

this pic is reminding us there's hope right?

well i can tell you a lot from the home front...
things are still harsh but i have good news...'nepa' has significantly and objectively improved!

we now see 'light' for longer than darkness...something i hoped i'd see in my lifetime
