I’m working on catching up here. These are all from the Chale Wote Festival here in Accra a few weeks ago. I did some editing on my iPad using Snapseed for this one.
This is one of my new favorites. He was really thinking about it as he looked out over this neighborhood.
Missed a couple of weeks here I think thanks to come lengthy travel and deadjustment from summer break. Good to be home and back in the groove.
It strikes me as I write this, just how much contrast these two pictures carry on their own. Two completely different worlds that I seem to live somewhere in between.
The first is the view outside my hotel room in Miami where I am for professional development this week. I thought the on coming storm in the sky, the white buildings and the green course provided a great example of contrast.
This second picture was taken in Peki, Ghana. There are so many ideas of contrast within this pic to me. I love the collision of cultures here. The differences but in the end the similarity of kids playing games.
Look at that kid’s face. This boy doesn’t love just the beautiful game. He loves his coaches too.
This one really challenged my creativity. Here’s three that I think fit the bill.
I like to think these monkeys might have been doing the twist.
This stuff is everywhere around Accra. Sometimes it creates some interesting patterns.
So the twist here is I have no idea who this guy is holding my kid. We were snapping some post game pictures at the National Stadium after watching the Black Stars play and everybody wanted a pic with the little Oburoni in his Black Stars kit. This was the third or fourth guy he posed with. My little buddy was a great sport about it.
Just a few quick entries. I’ll be traveling over the next couple of days, so maybe I’ll stumble upon a little something else.
I’m a little late to this one. Its been a busy week. Here are a couple from a recent trip to Sankofa and one from our first travels here in Ghana
The kids were boogie boarding as these fishermen came in and caught their own wave. That boat is deceptively heavy by the way.
The ocean is the movement here. A lucky shot of a guy looking out from the rubble of part of the old resort down the beach.
Moving slow through the floods just passing through the barrier on the George W. Bush highway headed for Accra. This was our first real road trip and an interesting welcome back to the city.
This one was tough. Living in Ghana, there isn’t much of a distinction between seasons. Plants bloom at different times of the year and fruits and vegetables go in and out of season, but there isn’t a real spring. Its just hot. I figured these couple of recent photos captured the idea well enough though.
We named this little guy that keeps showing up outside our door Scooter Bob.
