Week 121: Worlds II.

Much the same as last week's, hope you're enjoying my travels as much as I am.


There will be a string of photographs from the Negev, over the next few weeks. We met a group of Ethiopians, that claimed to be Dimona Israelites,walking through the desert. Goat herders mainly. This young girl dropped her colouring book, it had educational pages that showed her how to do her times tables. She accidentally dropped it and it blew away in the wind, we chased after it for her, but she really wasn't fussed about it. We still got it back to her however.

Week 120: Worlds.

So I'm in another country once again. A country that seems so alien but should seem so familiar. It's a strange feeling. Yes, it feels like another world. It feels almost as though it's another time period mixed with today's modernity. I can't explain through words. I am working hard. Taking photographs of a lot of different things. Variety is key. Portraits, animals, landscapes, cityscapes etc. To portray the true nature of a country would be a difficult challenge. However, to reach that goal I must be as diverse and open minded as possible.


Taken in the Negev desert. The relationship between human and nature is taken pretty seriously in the middle east. There is a lot of superstition floating around in the world that we may take for granted in our western culture. The Ibex have authority over a lot of things. It is believed they are the earthly representation of Beelzebub. From their appearance you can obviously see why. What they say, goes. If they want to sit in the shade, you better get out of the way. Even if it means you miss the bus that only runs every ninety minutes.

Week 119: Attitude.

There has been a drastic change in my life and it has sent me in a direction I fear/love. My feelings this week were mainly related to the positive and negative aspects of excitement. Flying off to another part of the world yet again, and the photographs that follow will be interesting. They will add to my career and the experience will be a great life lesson. My attitude will change.


The American attitude will never change. This was captured in Battery Park, New York city. The flags you see behind him are to commemorate each individual American that died in the 9/11 attacks. There were many citizens that were using the memorial in the way they would any other park even though this was during the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

Week 118: A view for any occasion.

Whether I am with a friend, family or even when I am on my own I will always view myself from other people's perspective. I understand if people look at me differently from how I'd like to be viewed, and to be completely honest with you, I prefer it. I dress or act in a certain way, so do most people. However, you can never judge a book completely by its cover, but you can also not help others having opinions on that cover. I like it, I like people to use their own imaginations when looking at me.


Here's a photograph I took in a pretty expensive cafe in New York. I'd like you to use your own imagination with this image, with those details being the only directions to go with it.
