06.28.11 Ghana

My time in Ghana was short but full.  I saw a lot of the country in a week and after the story came out which can be seen here in Condé Nast Traveler tear sheets, I still think about the trip.  I think about standing in the savannah with gazelle’s and bush bucks running past.  The lonely elephant spending mornings near the watering hole at  Mole National Park.  Meeting with the Paramount Chief in Wa in the North Western part of the country, bearing gifts for permission to photograph him and his elders.   The roads which were smooth and endless when paved and bumpy and back breaking when dirt and sand.  And some of the people who at first seemed shy and fearful of cameras who in the end often let out enormous smiles,  a contrast to what their life appeared to be.
