  • “Once more into the breach dear friends .. once more ... “ not much of audience this evening to recite probably one of the ‘bards most well known scripts .. just the dog and a confused daughter who asked me the heck William Shakespeare was?? It was indeed one of those moments when I mentioned his name, then swiftly wished I hadn’t, as my answer was met with a look of total incredulity ... 🤣🤷🏻‍♂️ Boring Dad moment alert 🤣 however, ahem ... this evenings walk felt like it required a slight rallying call as I wasn’t that keen, and neither was the dog after a day of loathsome chores. The kind of chores that require your full attention when you really wish they didn’t. The kind of chores which given the choice one would happily banish into space for the good of humanity 🤣 Throughout the day the dog could sense my suffering I’m sure 🤣😬🙈 Still, on reflection, it was lovely to get out and about as always ... and a real tonic to end the day. I’m sure the hound felt the same. I hadn’t intended to take a picture never mind post one but hey ho .. here you go ... Poppy my #kelpie crossbreed in all her ‘reflective’ glory .. Have a fab week all ...

  • Sheep, rolling hills, vast blue oceans, craggy clifftops, wide open space with only a few houses dotted about...it must be New Zealand! To me, nothing quite sums up this beautiful country like this combination. Taken at the highest point on the Otago Peninsula, Dunedin (South Island)🐑💙

“And what the body says 
is heard by no one
but you”.
from White Nights, in Wall Writing, by Paul Auster

13 years old.
And the body, transforming day by day.
So many thoughts filling the mind and the world to explore: space is an emotional dimension, fascinating albeit sometimes feeling too wide, both inside and outside.
Everything is open to knowledge, to new fears, to new certainties.
Teenage is tension, inwards, outwards and upwards.

  • A big welcome to my new followers! Your support means so much to me 💗 
A little about my style of photography ☺️ I am a lifestyle photographer and I only use natural light when documenting moments with my camera. 
I believe in keeping things  natural and personal and I see beauty in the simplicity of every day life. I believe there is so much beauty in capturing raw, authentic and honest moments.

I love focusing on small details such as hands, feet, hair etc and you will see me moving around a lot and getting up pretty close to capture these things during sessions. You will also see me standing back to document real moments that unfold.
​
If you like my style of photography please get in touch with me, I'd love to document your story 💗

  • Photo by Ashley Crowther @ashleycrowtherorg for @everydayclimatechange: A dying Himalayan glacier in the  Indian Himalayan range. Today, Cold War spy satellite images of the Himalayas 40-years ago were released. 
Scientists compared the images to recent satellite observations of the Himalayan mountain range and the glacial decrease, due to climate change, noted across the region is staggering. 
A Columbia University team found that between 1975 and 2000 around 4-billion tonnes of ice were lost every year. The amount increased to 8-billion between 2000-2016. "For a sense of scale, 8-billion tonnes of ice is enough to fill 3.2 million Olympic-sized swimming pools per year," said Joshua Maurer of Columbia University. 
From my many years of working in the Himalayan region and from my observations, I can attest that this is very real and very scary. 
Right now, due to the increased melting, there is excess water flowing down the major Asian rivers. 
However, once the glaciers disappear, this poses water security issues for billions of people across the Asian continent. Indeed, the smaller villagers relying on smaller glaciers are already feeling the pressures of life with little water, which is pushing their communities to the limits.

  • World Refugee Day 2019
.
Today, there is more than 70 million refugees around the world. The media talks about « waves of migrants » crossing the Mediterranean sea and trying to reach Europe.
.
Only 20% of African migrants actually leave the continent. The vast majority of migration takes place within Africa.
.
South Africa, being one of the most developed country on the continent - and its policy towards refugees and asylum seekers having been one of the most progressive in the past - attracts many.
.
The origin of those « migrations » are extremely diverse, as well as is the story of each person leaving a life behind to settle in a new country.
.
In all those different life stories one thing is always present, the resilience of each individual. 
Each person, in his own way, is fighting every day to make a better life for him or herself and his or her family.
.
In a global context where more and more borders are closed, where walls are built, and where xenophobia is on the rise, it is important to highlight the resilience and positive impact that foreigners and migration can have.
.
.
.
Alain Ndikundavyi left Burundi in 1974, he was 3 months old. He grew up between Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and moved to South Africa in 2001. For two years, to earn a living, he worked as a car guard in a parking lot on the N1.
.
« This is where I earned my first 2 rands. I spent ten minutes looking at it. »
.
With hard work and a lot of perseverance he studied at UWC, and graduated in 2008 with a nursing diploma.
.
Alain now works at the Glendale Home in Heathfield as well as does missions for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in various African countries.
.
After spending more than 44 years of his life as a refugee, Alain got his permanent residency in February 2018.
