Reex, Flames

I find the photos posted on this blog interesting but will you guys also post positive-themed photos?

I mean the world has seen enough of suffering Africa - it would be worthy to show the positive part of staying in Africa, not simply reinforcing the negative redundant cliches.

Negative publicity on Africa and Cameroon shall not make the situation better. Psychologically, it conditions Africans to accept it as normal while offering the developed world chances to perpetuate their so-called superiority.

Ndutu

I wonder whether these images are really negative. I love these pictures because they show the everyday Africa where people are just living their lives. For example, the picture of the "impossible car" is not negative but actually showcases African ingenuity. We cannot use western standards to judge what is "positive" in Africa. Even this picture simply shows how Africans adapt to their environment. You see beer and drunkenness in this picture, I see creative means of transportation...

Ma Mary

I love most of these pictures too, because they are not just about the flashy suit and tie people, but about regular people going about their lives. I love the piles and piles of plantains and the sacks of garri or whatever on the little Toyota Corolla retrofited with what look like Land Rover axles. It means people have a lot to eat, a good thing. I like the fact that the ordinary people look healthy and well nourished. I like that the photographer is interested in the ordinary folks who are normally ignored and never photographed and shoots them going about their business in a dignified way. If there are photos of superstars and their big mansions and cars that is good too.
