Ghana

In Ghana shooting for Standard Chartered Bank. In the morning I spent an hour trying to capture some street scenes which is always difficult in Africa, especially for a white guy. People dont like their shots randomly being taken and I understand it. At one stage I was in a huge argument with some security and civil police, luckily it just fizzled out and I left. I got a really cool shot though, walking under a bridge at one of the major intersections in Accra. I framed up the huge Ghanian flag painted on the wall and waited for the right pedestrian to walk past. This woman with the amazing pile of buckets on her head seemed just right.
