Daniel Sync's tribute to Peter Bello. The photographer and co-pilot who lost his life in the ill-fated helicopter crash in Lagos last Wednesday. PETER K BELLO, YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF HUMANITY.
Wow... This brought me back home to the importance of living a purpose driven life
Even though I never met you physically, it seems to me that you lived your life doing what you are passionate about. Photography and flying.
It seems to me that you lived a HUMBLE LIFE
It seems to me that you lived a SELFLESS LIFE
I believe that you lived your life through the lens of HUMANITY
. Death is just too unfair!
I think that the news of your death hit me more because i am a photographer too. Seeing a camera around your neck makes me feel like you are a colleague. I thought, this could have been me or any of my other industry colleagues.
I believe that you were passionate about your creativity and delivery every time you pressed the shutter to capture those memorable moments. PETER, MAY YOU NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
If there's anything I've learnt, it is to wake up daily knowing that we all have a purpose to fulfill and that we must put passion first before material gains. We are not promised tomorrow, so let's do our best today.
With a heavy and sorrowful heart, i painfully say; Peter K. Bello, may you rest in peace as we take a leaf from the tree of life that you lived. My heart goes out to the Bello's family at this difficult time.
