Streets of Accra.

First post here after spending a lot of time trying to find a 'serious' street photography site that isn't full of holiday snaps and pictures of cats (don't mind a few dogs ).  Shooting in Accra was a real challenge as the local people were very suspicious of someone with a camera and just didn't seem to understand that my only motive was to enjoy a hobby.  I ended up taking a lot with my camera held down and trusting on instinct and autofocus.

I question my own methods, however, as shooting whilst trying to conceal the fact seems a little immoral although it was the only practical way.
