Red is everything bold; to be clothed in a red gown is twice that feel. (more…)

I’d anticipated meeting Mr. Grey for some months now but distance played a massive role in keeping us apart… I accepted that until he said he was in Ghana.

He was in Accra!

Unfortunately, I got the news rather late and the only available time to meet up was the day of his departure.

I travelled 2hrs from home to where he was lodged, with his friend (one pretty interesting man, that one!)

On arrival at Ramada Beach Resort, Nungua, well… let me phrase this well:

Mr. Grey was just as I envisioned, tall, smells good, good looking, a gentleman indeed. We kept complaining about the weather… darn! The sun was angry at us, or perhaps the government. Snap that! It felt as though the sun was draining every ‘aorta’ of energy from our bodies. Mr. Grey sweats a lot more and was in black T-shirt as well.

We had fun. We talked about random stuff, their experience in Ghana and how I’d have love to take the around Accra if I was available earlier; he didn’t enjoy hearing me repeat that. There was limited time… an hour to set off to the airport, and then…

“I’ll just go for my camera now!”

What’s a photographer without his camera to capture moment and unending memories?

We stepped down to the shore and created these;

I had fun meeting a cyber friend. He’s more real to me now than a week ago, and I’d love to meet him again.  Maybe this time, in Nigeria.

I told you once
I told you that I liked you
But you looked at me and smiled
There I understood I was in it, alone

image

But I couldn’t stop liking
I didn’t expect you to like me back
I wanted it
But you wanted less

image

Then I told you again
Over a year of giving you less
I told you I still liked you
Didn’t rehearse for what you’d say next

image

No, nothing has changed
I’m used to loving alone
But you said same
You said you liked me too

image

I love that we’re not awkward
We wouldn’t have been here
I wouldn’t have experienced your awesome
I wouldn’t have liked you more

image

It’s the little things you do that get me smiling in your absence
The way you laugh raising your eyebrows in excitement
The way you get my sarcasm and deal with my kind of silly
I like you like that

image

I’m still here
My sentiments remain the same
You heard me then
Now you see me

Art is everything there is about everything there is.

I’d always wanted to be a dancer, but I do it best in my seat.

I’d wanted to be a painter and mould artifacts, but father suppressed my visual art skills back in High School.

“learn how to operate in the business world”, he’ll say.

But I picked myself up after High School; I must say, studying English Literature as a major discipline sharpened my literary skills. I started to write, but I couldn’t sketch, I couldn’t paint.

Then, I figured I could find a way to entertain more than just one art. I personally researched on critiquing artistic works. That, introduced me to photography.

I got so attached in the early stages so much so that I purposely acquainted myself with professional photographers. Well, they turn out to be amazing people too.

Above are some pictures of me with one of my friends PK Opoku, goofing around after a shoot. PK is a photographer, computer geek, and simply a nerd. I love the type of music he listens to, his sarcasm, and sense of humour. Most importantly, I love that he loves the Lord.

Here are the finished works.

So yeah, my modeling aspiration is not for the fame, but for how it makes me feel. It’s exciting to have an MUA (Make-up Artist) ‘pimp’ my face so fine, and a stylist dress me up so a photographer focuses on me, and most importantly, be a part of a fellow artist’s dream in creating a masterpiece… Too cool. I’ll keep learning and exploring success ways of managing this art.

Wish me the best.
