50calibre: Most of these heavily edited photos give the impression of lagos as a first world city. The reality is a far cry from these.

It's necessary to show the different sides so we can really put things into perspective.

See below, the other side of lagos
Hard life!!
nigga. Old pictures.... Most of those areas have been fixed

I've seen that picture plenty times.
It means that ghettos must be so hard to find if that's all the disparagers can find to discredit america with.

Meanwhile it looks almost like the cities of nigeria. tongue

I would have posted more pics for your viewing sake, but I don't want to deviate and derail the beauty of this thread further. The point is, the way you portray your country, the same way others will see it.

In other words,it is better to praise the slums of Nigeria so that outsiders will have a pseudo nice image of our country than to speak up about it so that the govt can do something right?
Even with all the wealth we live like paupers here and you're more concerned about keeping up appearances than rooting to fix the problem

Joke.
Deluded.

Keep up the image laundering ok? Let those who are actually concerned say something.

Anyway I agree that this one is a nice thread but it doesn't change the truth.

Hmmm...I was expecting to see pictures taken out by Nlndrs...not ones pulled from the internet.
Re: My Photo Diary by dont8(m): 11:24pm On Jul 10, 2014
Don't get me wrong, I know our country is bad bla bla bla; even here in Ikeja, there is a ghetto at the centre of Alausa and we all see the the ghettos around us everyday.

But once in a while we should portray the beautiful side of our country, it doesn't have to be all about negative aspect everytime. I know there is a trend and culture of Nairaland that you can counter a thread by opening another. So I expect another thread to be opened to counter this one, it can be called 'My Photo Diary: Other Side Of Lagos' and you back it up with pictures from the slums.

I've seen lots of pictures depicting Lagos as a ghetto anyway (especially the documentary BBC did), I'm tired of seeing that!

the part that annoys me most is the fact that these same idiotas are quick put up pictures and documentaries about the bad side of any place in Nigeria or Africa, but once the government responds to it and fixed it.. They ignore it and never publicize the good part.

E.g, Oshodi and ajegunle use to be a giant slum but the government fixed the area but till today, these motherfuvckaz still upload the pictures of old Oshodi to smear lagos whenever someone comes up with positive side of lagos....

My sentiment exactly, we never get to see most of their ghettos but we are quick to show ours and you don't want them to call you slum dwellers, smh. Rome wasn't built in a day is a fact (Oshodi and Lagos Island comes to mind).

Location : Marina, Lagos Island.
Photography by : Me

I saw a picture of it on Instagram and felt I would like to have a picture of it of MY OWN. So I went to the Marina and took the picture with my phone camera. I do crazy stuff like that sometimes smiley

Apparently, U are an amateur. What phone do you use? U shouldn't have edited using Hue. Well,I love the way U look. I'm crushed on U
