No. Never easy. But overcome still we will.

My brothers and I with my Dad; he passed on yesterday to be with the Lord whom he served faithfully for many decades. .

This is the man to whom I owe my introduction and very first love of cameras and photography. He travelled so far and wide and always came back with some of the most amazing pictures I had ever seen. We never travelled with him but we always went wherever he did through the photos he brought back. He may no longer be physically with us, but every time I press my shutter button, it is a tribute to my father. Thank you Dad. And rest well from your labours till we meet again in glory.

In other exciting news 2 brand new riproaring São Tomé and Príncipe videos are now live on the @destinationafrica.project YouTube channel! Link is in 👈🏿👆🏿 their bio page or you can type this if you're so inclined: https://youtu.be/BxjpM2rnhYI
.
These excursions were made possible by visionary support in Ghana from @stanbicmoneywallet, @ghanaphotography, @blankpagesolutions, @targetembroidery_gh, @treasuremaks; .
...and in São Tomé e Príncipe by @islandtour.newsgmail.com4744 @on_time_entertainment @saotomeeprincip @rocabelomonte @roca.santoantonio @pestanahotels @hotel_praia @club.santana, Beach Club and the Provincial Government of Príncipe.

Ghana has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We do need to get much more aggressive worldwide and even more so locally about tackling the plastic waste menace though. These fishermen toil night and day for a catch but by the time they finished hauling in this humongous net they had caught about 90% trash and 10% fish. Talk about fruitless effort. We were on the beach to chronicle a massive community cleaning effort to get the beach back to its full potential. It's a lot of hot backbreaking work, especially as it had never ever been cleaned before, ever! Oh and the men in the community refused to get in on the cleaning action. They said the work was too hard and the money being offered (for them to clean their own community) too small. They would rather sit and do nothing and earn nothing. The women however gallantly rose to the task. One more reason why I'm a feminist!

On the @destinationafrica.project second trip to São Tomé in March to launch the first video we made, we had some time on our hands and we made some awesome new friends - @hotel_praia, @roca.santoantonio, @martasofimedinas @club.santana. The full video from the first visit will be available on our Destination Africa YouTube channel from this weekend. This is the intro for our second video, captured during our most recent trip; full version also available soon on our YouTube channel. .
Big ups to an incredible team of dedicated, skilled and crazy professionals: @1grandberry, @wendyann_pearlisa @misjulee @hamidvijay @stanophoto. .

It's Africa Union Day and I'm digging into the archives and reviewing some of my very first hotel work in Ghana in 2007, work that first set me on the path to the @destinationafrica.project. It's been a pretty amazing journey. Tough, but amazing.

Today marks a major #milestone for me on this #road of #life and I am totally #grateful to God for the fact that I have made it this far. Many I have been close to have not. I am no different from them and I am not #special. I am merely the recipient of undeserved #grace and #favour; for this and for every breath I draw I am deeply grateful. .
.
The road still stretches out ahead and in front and I look forward completely confident that the same God who brought me this far will remain with me the rest of the way. I look to the future with #excitement, #anticipation, an #expectation of much greater things to come, much broader #influence and doors turning into #floodgates. .
.
I see an intensely #colourful and #bright #future ahead; and I absolutely look forward to embracing and experiencing it with you! Thank you for following, for liking, for encouraging, for pushing, for questioning, for listening, for loving and for just being there. You help make doing what I do all the more enjoyable. Thank you!
.
.
To those closest who remain on the journey with me I must say a very special thank you. To my parents and parents-in-law (God bless them), my two brothers and three sisters, my wife and three children, my brothers- and sisters-in-law, my spiritual father @daghmills, my @destinationafrica.project family at home and abroad, my many crazy bosom friends and my partner in creative crime @food_style_franka; God bless you.

#Ghana is #beautiful. Can we #improve on what we have? #Yes|we|can. Why haven't we to date? I don't know, but that's about to #change. We are tired of mediocrity in #leadership. We are tired of underachievers. We are ready now to take matters into our own hands. We are ready to show what #excellence looks like. We are #ready to set an #example. We are ready to show the #difference. We are ready to make a #change. We are ready to implement the #future.

#Accra is #changing. This area used to be a nightmare to #drive through (it kinda still is if you have come down a ramp to turn) but thanks to the erstwhile administration now the nightmare happens further along down the road. We are grateful for the #progress. .
