Yesterday, capturing this shot, I said to my friend
“Oh this isn’t beautiful!”
Bored at home, I played around with the picture
Not sure how it will turn out..
It taught me something though,
Often, we look at life from a singular lens
We’re afraid to switch lenses.
Who knows what we might discover?
We stick to the familiar and pretend we’re doing something new.
It’s better safe than sorry – we conclude
I dare you to look at yourself differently,
Don’t be afraid to step out naked.
Have a fab day!!! xo
THE REASON BEHIND THE REASON
I understand professions vary to a wide extent. I could have guessed, but it never crossed my thoughts; until yesterday, I always saw ‘things as they are’. But now, I’m forced not only to look at the latent reasons, but also to look at those latent reasons that every other person would either not see, or would brush off as unnecessary. Looking around my environment, I think I’ve identified a case study:
front view of the Accra Mall (night view)
THE ACCRA MALL
The thrill surrounding the Accra Mall, as one of the country’s finest, is fading away slowly. Not because there are stronger competitors sprouting up, but rather, most people are getting used to the ‘not-so-dynamic’ nature of the mall and ‘the same-everyday-stuff-I -can-get-anywhere’ theory. Latent meanings?
These are things we know, which that Miss Accra Mall simply ignores
- It’s a hook-up place for boys and girls, and oh, any professional prostitute (nope, sorry, sexual-alternative) would be wise enough to stretch his or her customer base.
- It’s that one place that Miss A and Mr. B could show how foreign they can get…it’s another country inside Ghana. Still wondering?? Clothes…dressing! That’s what I mean
- And sometimes, u can’t blame the everyday Ghanaian. This land can get real hot and with a little time to spare, why not walk through the mall and be air-conditioned?
- I would be so doomed to forget what brought up this whole discussion… ‘professional public toilet’ yep yep…it’s all yours to gain…at the mall
the web-a-holic-wanna-be couldn’t resist blogging about this…just a little deviation won’t hurt
