View from the ... 4th Floor

This is a view of Lagos Island from one of the windows in my office. This part of town is so chaotic, sometimes it's mind boggling. Still, there's no place like Lagos.

Morenike, Lagos is a beautiful place. Show off its beauty. This potrait would be wonderful as a pianting. there are places in Lagos that would be simply magnificent with just camera shots.
Morenike Olagbaju: It's funny you should say that with all the bad press Lagos/Nigeria gets in the international media. However, i agree with you. Lagos (warts and all) has a certain charm to it. It would definitely make a fascinating subject for a collection or exhibition.

You know how I feel about this picture already. I do not think you should get rid of your camera phone though.
Hey I have the same shot!!!! I didn't post it but now I feel like you've robbed my archive!

Nice work Niki! I'm so happy you are photoblogging with us.
Morenike Olagbaju: I'm sure this shot will do no damage to that glorious archive of yours. Thanks for stopping by!

wow! this picture looks a hundred years old! Reminds me of some old fotos of Lagos i saw sometime ago. It's brilliant. I think it's a complete composition so I dont expect you to go cropping it...between you and i...that upper part of the picture is an island (Apapa) you dont want to cut that off now do you?
Morenike Olagbaju: No, I don't! thanks!
