A busy hot afternoon, after fixing some errors on one of the AW139 Helicopters at Caverton Helicopters, we had to do a test flight, after fueling. We took a test flight round Lagos city, and first time ever I saw Lagos from the top view. I ran to the office to pick up my small Kodak 12mp camera which is always with me in the bag, as I didn’t have a DSLR camera.
Shortly after takeoff, the view from the top was awesome, I saw human as ants, instantly, I got my camera working, took some shots. Below is a picture of the famous Third mainland bridge, also known as Ibrahim Babanhida bridge, the longest in Africa, 11.8km in length.
Recently, I entered into a photography competition organized by IBM Africa to celebrate the launch of the 12th global research lab and the first in Africa, and also to recognize the talent and ideas of people across Africa. I submitted my picture of the popular “Third mainland Bridge” in Lagos, I am close to winning this competition and bringing the prize to Nigeria, yet again, celebrating one of our own.
