Picture of the Month: Calabar

calabar picture of the month

I’ve been wanting to go to Calabar for a long time and finally, I got the chance.  This photograph I took in Calabar is one of my favourites from that trip.  The sun was setting and I was lucky enough to capture the different shades of orange and blue that came with the moment.  I also like the contrast between the old and the new in the picture – the canoe in the foreground and the ship in the background.  It strikes me as a metaphor for Calabar itself with the old parts of the city (buildings and ways of life) living side-by-side with the new.
