Lets Jam, Labadi Beach, Accra Ghana

With the weird change going on all around world, it honestly feels like we have ran beyond the cliff, hanging in the air like cartoon characters defying gravity and not even knowing he is falling. Maybe we are falling or have even fallen and not trying to pick up the pieces of humanity. 

Photography has been a wonderful escape to a world of the past and present full of imaginations that take us everywhere. Not speaking as an expert Psychologist, but I find Photography therapeutic and reflections from here or there, random or not has been for me a powerful way of connecting the world, its people and my environment. 

Lets explore some random stuff and people from all around us. My eyes, Your Eyes.

Photos invokes sadness, love, joy, the past we trying to run away from, good times, great people and the annoying ones, anticipation, never forgetting lots and lots of dearly departed, making Photography a potpourri of emotions for us all, an emotion sometimes worth pursuing.

Good thing in today’s world, the talent and mastery of Photography does not take owning a big camera, the phones in our pockets can also do the magic.. History has never, been so documented.

Keep taking pictures..

Hope your day is made..
