Greetings from Ghana. I read about the given lens and i did liked the work that you are doing. I am a a volunteer placement officer in Ghana and id be glad if we could work some projects same similar to what you have been doing across the globe.

Easter Holidays 2016 there shall be the DIPO rite of passage of the krobo girls in the eastern region of Ghana and i wish we could work some educational photo trips and training with the krobo dipo girls and the krobo tribe it self.
How do you feel about it.

A golden autumn sunrise over Lake Louise, Alberta. I only got to witness it a few times but I'm sure it never gets old.

Laundry 1.

Am I a creep if I love to photograph strangers' laundry? Everywhere go I'm drawn to the simple colours in a row. Where I'm from, we have dryers. No one sees the laundry. But most of the world doesn't. Clothes on a line make me feel nostalgic for something I didn't have, and it also is a sense of peeking into someone's life. I've done laundry in a number of corners of the world and I'm always a little flustered to see the contents of my bag strung up for the whole world to see. It's so intimate in a way.

I'm also drawn to the consistency of it - the human nature of it all over the world. Despite everything going on, anywhere in the world, the laundry needs to get done. Across all socio-economic layers, every culture I've happened to cross. The day goes on. Tomorrow will come. When it arrives, we wake up, get dressed, and live.

Taken in Split, Croatia, 2014.

Early morning on the farm in Wyoming. Just a bunch of dewey chickens and a cup of coffee (for me, not the chickens).

Sadly the old memory card I was using failed so it's the only one I have of this scene .... but I like it a lot so it will do just fine smile emoticon (Actually even this shot has an error in it but luckily the Sony files are big enough that I could actually salvage a still decent sized file out of the deal. Winning).

Taken on a Sony a7ii and a 70-200mm lens (at 200mm).

inside Tvrđava Sv. Nikole (St Nicholas Fortress), in Šibenik, Croatia.  

(I chose an Indiana Jones quote just because something about this image makes me think of that kind of mood and adventure. But i really have no rhyme or reason to how or why I choose quotes. It's like a sony lyric, once it's in my head, it's stuck there for days.)

I took a two week semi-haitus from Facebook. I logged in to check on stuff and like a few statuses but otherwise I kept it out of sight because my newsfeed was killing my soul a little bit. Not that there aren't many wonderful people posting positive or hopeful stuff, just that they were outnumbered by fear, hate, and misinformation. 

So instead I turned it off and used the time to dive into two things I am passionate about: my photos, and my faith. 

I haven't been to Syria but I have been to Egypt and Jordan (and Morocco, which is not middle eastern but is deeply muslim). I took time to reflect on these trips, the people I met, the deeply human connections I made, the overwhelming sense of welcome I experienced. And i dove into my faith - not the christianity of Fox News or Donald Trump but the one that's of Christ. The one that begs for reconciliation, forgiveness, mercy, kindness, unconditional love and unexplainable hope, radical grace and even more radical inclusion that knows no bounds and is not constrained by politics, by borders, or by fear. I don't recognize the christianity portrayed on TV, and it shakes me, so I have to return to my own roots in a quiet space. In this space, there is no fear, there is no us and them, and we're all refugees fleeing some kind of brokenness, though for my syrian brothers and sisters that brokenness is more real than I'll ever have to know or face. 

Both these things brought me fresh air this week. Sometimes it's good to turn off the facebook, turn off the news, turn off the noise and indulge or dig into something that brings you fresh air. 

This particular young man I met on a side street near the Cairo Necropolis, the City of the Dead, where miles of tombs line the streets. I don't know what about me he found so hilarious but I took it as a complement. He tried to give me one of his rings, gold with a red stone, but I implored him that I was already married and my husband would be jealous. I know the focus isn't perfect but the moment is, his expression is, and that makes it a pretty perfect picture to me. It reminds me that he was laughing so hard he couldn't even keep still, belly laughs like a little child :) 

So now on my website there is an Egypt gallery. I'll be adding more to my Jordan one soon, and Morocco to follow. And a Canadian one too, which I've never had, as I am proud of our new PM for standing by his promise to bring 25,000 refugees to Canada. I hope I can find out where to stand and cheer when they begin to arrive.

Let's go back to Egypt. 

I viewed the pyramids from every angle, all times of day, and I just couldn't get enough of them. And i know there's cooler, more rural ones, even out in the desert, not to mention tombs and King Tut and oases (that's the plural of oasis ... I didn't know that either), endless shisha bars, cobbled streets, the histories of many different religions, the mediterranean coastline, the red sea, the nile, and ... and .... 

So, all in all, yeah, let's go back to Egypt.

Fall was showing its colours in Lake Louise when I was there last month. This was taken on the Sony a7ii and the 24-70mm lens, handheld. The internal stabilization of the camera really helped to get some sharpness to the long lines of the trees - I'm actually quite terrible at blurring / creating motion handheld. Apparently my hands move in every direction. Anyway - enjoying this shot. Fall is really one of my favourite seasons and I feel fortunate that I got to go visit Banff / Lake Louise at this time of year.

When we planned to go to Morocco last January during our Euro-stint, I didn't anticipate ending up in the Sahara with a rambunctious 7 year old whom I'll call E. But I did, through a glorious series of events that lead us to Nancy, living in Morocco with her daughters, launching a tour company with a local Moroccan. This is how we got invited to a nomadic wedding out by the Sahara. This is how good things in life go - unexpected, with a little hesitation (or a lot), and then with great trust to leap.

So this is E. While the adults huffed and keeled over getting to the top, she scrambled straight up the backside and claimed it. From what I know of her, that's very E: the most direct route, no matter how hard, the first to arrive, the champion.

I have a team in Morocco right now with The Giving Lens. I had to remain behind due to ongoing issues with my eye (which is getting better). While I wish I was there, I know they're seriously in for a treat with Nancy, her team at Open Doors Morocco, and the wonderful people and places of Morocco.
