POTD: Ghana Armed Forces Protecting a Ship

TFB’s Photo Of The Day is all about photojournalism. Robert Capa was a Hungarian–American war photographer and photojournalist. He photographed many wars and had the motto “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough”. Unfortunately, this motto lead to his death as he was fatally injured in the Indochina War. These images may not be nearly as dangerous to shoot, but there’s a lot of action going on for sure. You see members of the Ghana Armed Forces onboard a boat, while teammates secure another ship. The images are from Flintlock Exercise in Volta, Ghana, from March 11, 2023.
