When Lagos Met Accra Daily Photos


I am presently in Ghana to attend a couple of sumits and happened to meet the brain behind Accra Daily Photo blog at the just concluded ACP (African, Carribean and Pacific States) summit. Emmanuel Bensah and I have been virtual friends for more than a year now but only just met in the flesh. He was one of the people that inspired me into taking photos of Lagos because of the good job he does with projecting Accra through his blog.

Here's to the progress of our two cities and the continuing influence of the Daily Photos community worldwide which has encouraged people to know more about their world.

Nice to see you guys together in the flesh - I've been a fan of both for a few months now. Keep on bringing your different visions of West Africa to the world. It's important.

It is interesting to see two virtual bloggers together in the flesh. Both of your blogs are very different from
the news we see.

Sherry said...

@Benjamin & Babooshka
West Africa does have a lot to show to the world. Unfortunately we get a lot of bad press, sometimes deservedly, but most times there are success stories that never get told to the world.
@JM & Sherry
Yeah sure, thx.
@Kris
He surely did meet them. The SUdanese leader was there and he was the centre of attention with most people hoping he would be arrested by the International Criminal Court for genocide in Darfur. But it didn't happen...
