Around V.I in a few minutes

Victoria Island - the location of quitessential up class Lagos, the location where most companies love to base their head offices. I went a snapping spree in a moving vehicle and caught as much as it would allow...

Nice planning but plenty holdups! The dude with the iphone is Chris, my art director. we always snap everytime we go on an outing, you just don't know when u'll catch something useful on camera.

Governor Fashola has been doing one heck of a job trying to beautify Lagos. This roundabout landscaping is one of such.

Lagos Taxi infront of this neat looking church with a strange name - 'Church of the assumption'

I just love the design on this building - 'Coconut Grove'. Makes you feel like u're in Hawai or somewhere like that.

This building may not be outstanding in architecture but you can't ignore the colors. 

One of Intercontinental bank's new office which I mistook for Bank PHB. They share the same colors.

One of millinoaire Okoya's buildings (The man is always erecting massive structures) flanked by a police station.

Tetrazzini - an eatery that has been around for so long yet is not as popular as Mr. Biggs, Tantalizers, TFC, Chicken republic etc... and they offer you awoof tea in the mornings. 

Union Bank - the old fashioned bank with cute buildings. A successful and strong bank but I can never put a dime in there. No siree! Not me.

A refuse packer at work on VI. These guys dey make money oh! I heard of one that had succeeded in building a house and sent kids to school thru this business. Its not surprising since Naija is not a recycling nation. we generate waste like no man's business.

The beautiful civic centre flanked by 1004 complex (under renovation) at the edge of the lagoon. Sorry I couldnt get a closer and better shot. Car was moving too fast.

This sight horrifies me - Sandfilling of some parts of the lagoon in order to create more land! Why? With all the global warming thats happening, is this a smart thing to do? And I know that when you mess with nature the consequences can be drastic.
