Photograph February #6

Life is one big collage of people of different ethnicities, traditions and cultures. If we could all just see beyond our differences, fear and distrust of each other, there would be, as they say in my country, “no problem, man”. I’m someone who’s always open to new things. I’ll go anywhere and try almost anythingContinue reading “Photograph February #6”

Photograph February #5

Paris, France has always had the reputation of being “the city of love” and has even been professed by some as being the most romantic city in the world.

Gone with January are a few people I knew very well, close friends of myContinue reading “As the Ferris Wheel Turns”
