From Queensland to Obuoba

I have lived at Nungua-Buade for the better part of a decade now. When you get used to a place you sometimes forget some of the things that make it beautiful. The road from Queensland School to Nungua Addo-Gonnno used to be the preferred route when getting to Barrier because it was less muddier and more even than the main route. The construction of the gates to seclude Regimanuel Gray Estates (due to incessant armed robbery activities) and the tarring of the Nungua-Buade roads have made it less trodden than in years gone by.

I have made portraits starting from the alleyway near my home thru to Queensland School to the Obuoba Gardens

 

Tema: A homecoming (Of sorts)

Featured image is the front of the Killer Z Gym (in colour) where I made some unlikely new friends 

 

I was born in Tema and spent the first 12 years of my life in this city. It always remains a part of me and I would never miss an opportunity to share some of the sights of my city. Toeing the line of nostalgia, I would also say so much has changed, yet the old city still persists with the new.

I have tried as much as possible to show you as much of the old that remains along the myopic route I took. Through Community 2 to Community 6, some of my old haunts (I used to roam a lot with my brother) and a sliver of new developments all in black & white.

I would definitely return to make a more encompassing documentary. For now though, this will have to do.

Sea spray and factory smoke

Fills my lungs

A city born in industry

Swelling into prominence

Cosmopolitan

Potpourri of cultures and beliefs

A little Liverpool but more Manchester

A city by the sea

Ghanaian

Revolutionary

Hosting the centre of the world

Order

Zeal

And downright determination

This is my city

Where the new lives with the old

This is my home

Full of memories and the art of building tomorrow

Forged in industry

Striving for glory

This is Tema!

From Fodome-Woe With Love

Over the weekend I was in my hometown Fodome-Woe near Hohoe in the Volta Region to bury my late uncle. It had been a while since I last visited and the first time I was visiting as a photographer. So much had changed from when I used to visit growing up, yet its quiet charm forever remains the same.

Naturally I took the opportunity to take photos of some of the rustic community that is my hometown.

PS.
All photos were made with a Canon 700D with a 18-55mm kit lens.
