After yellow buses, my favorite subject to photograph in Lagos is the horticulture. We are blessed beyond measure with some of the most fabulous plants that grow here and I live next to what is probably my favorite park in Lagos – VGC Park. I went for a walk one day and I took a few photos with my iPhone, I was so blown away by my iPhone shots that I went home to get my camera.
I walked in that park for another 2-3 hours focusing on every little shape and detail of this park. I was mesmerized by the spider webs and the weather-beaten detail of the tree trunks. It really is amazing the beauty in the detail; especially when you just allow yourself sink into child-like curiosity and shoot from the gut.
