Sara > Ghana

In 2006, I spent several months in Ghana, West Africa, one of the most visually striking places I've ever been. Hot, bright, and loud are the only adjectives I have to describe it. A truly exciting and overwhelming experience.

Sidewalk in Kumasi - I snapped this while in a taxi at a red light. Everywhere you look in Ghana, the colors are so intense and beautiful.


Kumasi Central Market - An aerial shot of the Kumasi Central Market, a maze of crowded shops stretching on for miles.


Artist Studio, Accra - A sculptor in Accra allowed me to tour his personal studio. He worked mostly with recycled trash to create complicated, often humorous sculptures. His studio was a mess, but very inspiring!


Trinity Home Orphanage, Tutu - These kids were very excited to have their picture taken. I love the proud look on the tall boy's face.
