Very close to my prison. When were you there?
DrAW!: sometime in may at the location for this shot, but many many many many other times in the vicinity grin
Did you do something to the sky? Clouds look blue!
DrAW!: i boosted saturation in the upper part of the sky i think
don't remember 'blueing' the clouds
Beautiful and colourful picture. I have been in Lagos 26 years ago!
DrAW!: wow!
that's quite a while
i'm sure a lot's changed since then smile
Love the angle/colors.
DrAW!: thanks john

is Lagos not one of the most dangerous places to be Doc or am i mistaking it with somewhere else? Why all the antenna? Looks like its on the up and up super shot Doc.
DrAW!: no i won't say dangerous...it's more of fast paced with so much going on.
these parts of town are as safe as any city during the day

didn't even notice the antennae till you mentioned them, i guess i'm used to seeing them all over the place
my guess is they're either for telecommunication, or satelite television or the sort

Interesting tones in this one. It almost looks like a model.
DrAW!: that's a really big compliment martin!
if i've been able to make a portion of busy lagos look like it can be modeled then i've accomplished some feat grin
Thank you very much. I am a HUGE fan of yours! You and Mr. Alakija are great and I get on your blogs everyday to be inspired/learn new things. It's always fun. Keep doing what you do best.
DrAW!: cheers man grin

Beautiful image DrAW
DrAW!: thanks aussie
Looks like a city that is growing fast Doc. I'd love to see more pictures of Nigeria.
DrAW!: thanks bill,
as much as it seems that people aren't interested in non-portrait pics from me, i'll throw in a city shot every now and then grin
It calls very many the attention in this photo the great amount to me of great antennas that there are! It is possible that the communications are bad?
DrAW!: lol
i can't say authoritatively jose smile

Yay! Look at my Secondary school - King's College Annexe (atleast the football field and assembly ground). Aww, the memories!
DrAW!: grin
