photoblog image Abuja Mosque

Abuja Mosque

Was in Abuja during the week and I still can't believe how amazing that city is compared to Lagos! No fair :( Nyhoo this is a shot of a big mosque in the city.

Do you know when it was built? I don't remember this being there, but its been years since I last was in the city. What distance did you take this from?
Foluso Olowude: I have no idea when it was built... but since Abuja seems to always be in the works it could very well be new. I took this from my hotel room... not sure the exact distance.

Magnificent. Clarity is just too bunnnnnnnzzzzzzzz, and it speaks volumes. I can imagine this mosque was at a distance, but still looks so close. That is the effect of the zoom............Nice job. I have never been to Abuja, but would really love to go one of these days.
Foluso Olowude: You should... its the complete opposite of Lagos. Its actually Clean!!!
Nice shot Foofie, thats huge.
Foluso Olowude: Sure is... thanks bunny
Very nice shot.
If I recall correctly the mosque was already built as early as 1991.
Foluso Olowude: Ahhh.. thanks for the info, I had no clue.

Great shot. wish we could see more shots like this from Nigeriza. Would go to knock the perceptions of Africa being soley famine ridden. cheers
Foluso Olowude: Thanks Wailor. I wish they wd stop portraying us that way!

Is this MyNige??? Beautiful Mosque. Even the background doesn't let her down in this shot.
Maybe we should stop trying to revamp cities, and just build new ones, like Abuja.
Awesome shot ma!!
