I have silently and faithfully gone through your photos on the “Echoes of my neighbourhood”. I was there when you brought up the idea. I was excited about it but I did know that I would be reluctant to share pictures of my neighbourhood.
You have beautiful places to show of Dubai. What I have pales in comparison. I have pictures on my phone and I stare at them and scroll to the next picture. Who wants to the dusty streets? Colourful gates of that primary school, the part of Oshodi market that has been destroyed, or BRT bus stops, beggars that line up the road etc.
There are of course beautiful places in Lagos but those places are not my neighbourhood.
Well, I wrote this just in case I got you wondering.
