My Best Photo Ever: Beach Shots and Elmina Kids

I can't believe I took this photo. I love the focal point of the girl in the yellow dress. All the intersecting lines work, and the composition is awesome. Of course, it's the subject matter that makes the photo.

 This fisherman is carving his father's name into his boat and a passage from the Bible. He referred to the tree used at its base as a Wawa tree (Triplochiton scleroxylon), which is either a boa bob tree or a kapok.
Elmina kids have a great time with what little they have and they get silly when a camera appears. Often they pose and want to see their images on the display of the camera.
