Photo of the day: Stay Alive

This post has been inspired by one of the photographers I look up. He an inspiration to me and its a pleasure to be working with him. This guy is Edward Echwalu. In his latest blog post 50 Tips for African Photographers he says, “Many have said it before me. Allow me repeat it too. No picture is worth your life. If it is dangerous, move away immediately.”   And I totally agree with him. Live to take other photos than die or get injured for one picture.
