What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

Welcome to Ghana's Ministry of Interior

I was in the Ministries area yesterday on a work-related assignment, and took the opportunity to capture the front of the Ministry, which startled me a bit in the sense that the architecture is SO very different from the other Ministry buildings around. A colleague suggested that it probably has resonance from our colonial masters, the British.

For some strange reason, it reminds me of aspects of Western European architecture, possibly Germany, which has played its role in Ghana's history in unique ways as the British have done.

A view from some 10 feet.I couldn't help--bar the small distraction of the man crossing the view--but have my breath taken away that small bit, with the contrast of the tree, the leaves against the building.

let's face it: this is the picture that I LOVE best.
