A Rivalry Taken to the Pitch: SM vs SGM

About a week ago, two bosom friends engaged in a war of words. Diss records and clap-backs streamed back and forth. Finally both parties rallied their troops to settle this spat once and for all. Stifla Movement and Skinny Gee Movement Squared up to each other at the Lizzy Sports Complex at 4pm GMT.

It was a clear sky when the game kicked off. Both teams went straight for the jugular immediately. Surprisingly there were no bookings despite the number of tackles (because there was no referee!).

Team SM took the lead after a slaloming run from the captain Stifla himself, who beat SGM captain Skinny Gee en route to goal. Offei equalized afterwards after dinking a cute shot over Stanley.

Veteran defender Pochoko ‘El Pupuuta” picked up a knock but after a quick drink he was back to full fitness.

Shaker bossed the midfield, spraying passes like a lawn sprinkler system. He eventually netted one for himself.

Target-man Bolingoli Tafrisky came on at the break and scored with his first touch; the ball cannoned off his belly into the goal. Tafrisky added another; a sumptuous strike into the top corner of the goal.

Team Stifla added 3 quick goals. Using tiki-taka movement they absolutely ripped SGM’s defence to shreds.

Skinny Gee made a string of otherworldy saves to keep his team in the game after SM’s onslaught.

The game went into extra time as both teams strove hard to break the deadlock. Pochoko “El Pupuuta” blazed home a vicious piledriver as the ball fell kindly to him from a hashed clearance.

With the game seemingly won, SGM’s defence was caught napping after another mesmerizing run by Stifla who slotted calmly through the legs of Skinny Gee.

With a stalemate ending the game, it went to penalties. After a flurry of goals and misses both teams agreed to postpone the game (Actually them sack we cos wona money finish.)

Certainly after such an exciting fixture, another game to settle this once an for all would be on the horizon? Stay peeled for more information.

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

 

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.

 

Boar hunting on the banks of the Blekese

I woke up this morning with an unusual itch. I wanted to take photos of pigs. There is this stream named the Blekese which runs right behind my house. It is the feeding ground of pigs reared by people in the neighbourhood.  Armed with a 50mm lens (I know I know, hardly appropriate for this sort of photography) I went out to shoot.

My goal was simple; find the black boar who seems to be the leader of this herd. Unfortunately I did not find him.It took a while to find the other pigs, but I found a couple of other interesting albeit depressing things about my neighbourhood.

The issue of shantytowns (there is one on the banks of the stream) and refuse is a deplorable one. I tried my best to take out the human element. That would be tackled in a separate adventure.

Enjoy the gallery below though!
