It’s the Lagos Carnival again! I am glad to be a Nigerian. I am proud to be a Photographer. I am glad to have been at this year’s Carnival. If you have not been to one before you may not be able to tell the complete story of a Nigerian.
I would leave the pictures to tell its story and am sure you would enjoy this first part which is more of the streets. I have also uploaded them in no particular form so you can view them according to the time I shot them guess that makes it livelier.
This year’s Lagos Carnival was tagged ‘Eko4Show’. As usual the turnout was over 12,000 participants who converged from all around the world. The carnival starts at Falomo through Ikoyi and some parts of Eko streets finally ending at TBS (Tafawa Balewa Square). The carnival is usually the high point of the Lagos Black Heritage Week.
