Night Oops

Sometimes things don’t go according to our neat little plans, not everything can be picture perfect and that’s ok. Going with the flow of life sometimes upsets our plans but at the days end ; All’s well that ends well 🙂 (I know it’s cliché *rolls eyes*)

This week we are called to put our mistakes front and centre, pretty or not we are human and photoshop can’t stop our mistakes or life from playing hooky with our lives. The theme is : OOPS.

This is one of my nighttime photography attempts, I moved at the last minute and a nice shot got unexpected trails and bad blurring *cringe*


Awolowo Road Underpass

The vastness of built structures has always fascinated me. The sheer height and strength was my muse for this urban post dedicated to a bridge i pass everyday to work.

Mosque at Dawn

Islamic Religious architecture always has unique and easily recognisable features. The towers that square out the central dome are standard.
I caught the dim light of dawn as it washed the white walls in a sober blue, and the white lights of the towers still shining like beacons.
This is how The Lekki Central Mosque Lagos looks at 6:35 in the morning.

Commuters in Motion

Reflection in Motion by rubys polaroid

People in motion, always a beauty to capture. They are mostly pedestrians but an unusual motorcycle(for Lagos anyway) and its rider caught my eye as well.
Culled from my Streets of Lagos Series.
Inspired by WPC this week themed MOTION.

Skyline Blur

Took this shot with my phone on a drive through Ikoyi Bridge. It was a lovely sunset but my phone captured something else. A man’s silhouette against a blurred out skyline shot. To see other entries in this week’s challenge click, WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – BLUR.

Streets of Lagos: Ozumba Mbadiwe Street VI

Roaming the streets taking pics, my focus today is Ozumba Mbadiwe Street VI,Lagos. A quite popular street/road for its buildings, 1004 estate, Law School Lagos, Exxon Mobile Lagos, and so many other attractions.
I have rendered some in selective monochrome, what do you feel seeing them? Comments and suggestions are always welcome on my Urban Journey through Lagos in pictures.
