the salty sea water and the translucent sands evoked poignant memories

memories of a Nigerian boy with his cousins

clad in sky blue underwear with flower prints at a beach in Lagos

a decade later the boy stood once again at the same beach

he was back from his journey far east

his soles had felt the orange soils of Uganda

and the wide tarred roads of China

standing there with a camera in hand and his cousins by his side

so much had changed but the beach still looked the same

they had beer and fried chicken

talked about dreams and childhood memories

they went into the cold water

the camera was left on the beach

it didnt survive a huge tide that eventually corroded its core

a week later that boy went back home to China

bought a new camera and continued to take portraits
