More this, more that.
As I drove on Adeniran Ogunsanya Street a few weeks back, this fellow came to my car. "I am deaf and dump (sic), his placard read, and I thought, "this will make a good picture". As I reached for the camera and pointed, he stepped back and away from the camera, and I wasn't sure if he had struck a pose for the camera or was an antelope caught in the lights of a speeding truck late at night. It was his expression that struck me.
I couldn't get him off my mind as I drove off. He's my brother, my countryman. Time and Chance happen to us all.
