Ghana’s Panoramic Beaches

by | Sep 12, 2014 | Ghana | 4 comments

As I mentioned in my last post, I recently had the chance to try out a panoramic disposable film camera. I shot most of the panoramic film during my trip to Ghana in August.

I still have many interesting photos and stories from my Ghana visit and I’m going to share them here are there over the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, here are a few panoramic glimpses of my first trip to West Africa.

Cape 3 Points beach

The view from Escape 3 Points, an ecolodge near the village of Cape Three Points. I really enjoyed my stay in this remote part of the world. Cape Three Points is at 4 degrees latitude and 2 degrees longitude, the closest land point to the geographic center of the world.

Akwidaa beach

Beach near the town of Akwidaa, not far from Cape Three Points. I love the grainy, scratchy effect of this film — it matches the weather conditions that I experienced in Ghana. I was there at the end of the rainy season and the weather was unseasonably cool (i.e., not a boiling sauna). I hardly saw the sun during the six days I was there, which was frustrating in some ways but also saved me a lot of sweating.

Anomabo beach

Moody beach at Anomabo, a small town near Cape Coast. Anomabo and Cape Coast are both home to colonial slave castles, which I’ll write about in a future post.

Cape Coast street

A street in Cape Coast.

Cape Coast small

My favorite panoramic from Ghana, despite the bad framing. Also from Cape Coast.

Keep an eye out for more belated posts about Ghana. And thanks again to Zavi Traders for the fun disposable camera.

    I also used one of those disposable “panoramic” cameras (many years ago). Didn’t do any particularly good shots but I loved it.

    Good use of a panoramic camera – disposable or otherwise! Love the images. Looking forward to more!!
