My schedule has changed, its pretty hectic. as a result, I might be a b it late sometimes, I promise not to disappear if i can help it.

You may not be able tell from this picture, but in true african style, immediately after the first goal, this young lady started calling on GOD to intervene (As if the Brazilians were not praying as HARD!)

Well as the results show, it would appear that the Brazillians prayed Harder !!!!

Yesterdays Game was very difficult for me to cover, Ispent most of my time watching the game instead of capturing Images.

Okay now this is getting too much bro? You in Germany covering ALL THE games? how did you maneage that? What in the world do you do? You the official photographer for a paper or something? Tell ALL smile

Anyway, my favourite shot from you in this series, the woman's face tells it all. Love it.

Mobolaji Kamson: LOL !!!!! Suby, suby suby !!!!, dont we all wish we were contracted by some big time sports magazine to cover the worldcup with fulltime access to all the games, feild side, vip boxes changing rooms and ALL !

I hate to spoil it for you,but, I just happen to be in Germany during the worldcup, I havent even smelled a stadium since I have been here.
but since the germans are SOOOOOO ! generous, they have huge tv screens with stadium seats, so you have about 10,000 people watching the games live at fanfest centers all over Germany (for free) This is great, its just like being in the stadium, the fans do GO crazy at times. I just wish for once I was actually able to cover a game from feild side. I will have to settle for much smaller games to do that !!! smile

Your series on the World cup (esp. this picture) just makes me think how small the world has become. i'm almost sure at these fanfests, almost every country playing in the World Cup is represented. amazing.

I love the expression on her face which contrasts with the brightness of her "kente" cloth and her face paint. Pity Ghana didn't win. Someone so colourful should've been celebrating.
