An old treasure found!

I found something interesting on my last trip to Nigeria and it turned out to be my very first attempt to make a photo album. It came at the right time since I’m currently working on album designs for my wedding clients. I worked on this when I was 13 or 14 judging by some of the pictures. So I guess I can say my love for photography didn’t just start recently. I remember when my dad told me choose 2 things for a Christmas gift in 1988, I said I wanted a camera and the Michael Jackson thriller record album. So I got the record and a Canon Sureshot Owl film camera. Don’t ask me why I thought it was cool to take a bunch of pictures and tape them to a piece of wood:)I guess little did I know that I was actually tapping into my love for photography but looking back now I’ve obviously ruined the shots physically by taping over it….things we do as kids!

First pic on the left, Agip estate Christmas party. From left to right, Me, Adrew Bioseh, Ogugua Bioseh, Tope Owolabi. Pic on the right, from left to right, Taye Ayodeji, Solape Ayodeji, Kehinde Ayodeji(RIP)


I also put 2 nails so I can hang this thing…lol

Lola Carrena - Dotun is Nolan look just like YOU! My God!

chinwe - The Nolan look alike is amazing!

Debbie - OMG… For a second, I was like “what is Nolan doing in the old photo?” Then I thought “was he super-imposed in there” then I came to grips with my imagination…. “He is a spitting image of his dad!” But I digress… Dotun, even then, it seems you had a fascination with saving memories :) Good work with the collage.

Muyinot - This is Awesome! I’m sure it brought back memories.

DrAW! - OMGoodness! Based on that baby pic, Nolan is a splitting image of you!

Seun Al - Really creative album i must say, cant help but notice Nolan looked just like you as an infant…
