the colorful buildings in lagos island date back to the 1970's. these vivid declarations were intended to brighten the landscape and sell milk, eggs, and other goods. to me, they serve as a example of how there is art in every thing here, even when seemingly forgotten and untended. the laundry hanging from the lines, the watchers and waiters leaning on the balconies, the family life that is evident from the bridge as you fly by~ these buildings have always fascinated me... as bright beacons in a mosaic of nigerian life.
