Another Risk for the Love of Landscape

The first time I took a risk for landscape, was from the top of a mountain,second was in the waters at a dam, third I got lost in a small village, and once again I took another risk for my first photography love, Landscape. If that isn’t love then what is it? (Laughs)

I am still yet to decide if I am afraid of heights or not?, but I sure love the look of things from “above”. I guess this is why despite the initial jitters and frights, I always want to go up.

Late last year I approached a friend( an architect), telling him I wanted to shoot from the top a tower his firm was building. He told me it was a 17-storey tower, but I actually didn’t realize how high that was until  I actually did the shoot about a month ago.Wow! that was high!, although I took most of the pictures from the 15th and 16th floor.

Construction work was seriously going on, so I never got to use my tripod, I just kept capturing what I could, trying to stay away from the edge of the building.Thankfully, I was accompanied by a safety engineer, and another architect (they both insisted on accompanying me).

I took quite a number of pictures, but I love to share these seven with you

1. Loved the roof top view

  1. Reblogged this on Dainty M and commented:
    Such beauty can be found in Nigeria! I love my country regardless of the hills and valleys…all of these make it a perfect landscape. @Nonijaz photography, really beautiful work!

  2. These pictures have prize winning potential, but I think your lens should explore the less pleasant parts of Lagos. Photographs of that other side, a grittier form of life,
    will speak more vividly than these ones.

  3. well big bro toby…. i agree quite well but i think views like this also expantiates the beauty of a country accredited with less attraction and topsy-turviness.

  4. This is a very beautiful view. Who would have thought 1004 flats could look so beautiful. Then the waters and boats around the Civic Center Aerial views really help to appreciate architecture and nature itself.it’s a lovely piece o f work.Keep it up dear. Your pictures are cool.
