Probably some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken.

Rented some tradition wooden plank boats used by fishermen in Ghana and met some young Ghanaians who definitely showed us a thing or two how it’s done. Thankful I was able to wade out and capture some awesome shots of these guys.


Alyssa (iflovingyouwerewrong) and I wanted to make a video of us attending Afropunk 2014 together but once we hopped on the first train, excitement took over and we just forgot all about it lol smh

this is just a 40 sec clip of us waiting for the train in Jersey

*sigh* it would’ve been cool to have filmed our entire day but ah well
