Rubbish Heap

I was nominated by a friend to post images of “People” over a series of days… Today I have chosen to share with you an image I have not shared before. I took this on my trip to Cambodia in May earlier this year. These two little boys were playing on that rubbish heap that…

Prince Philip by Gem Rey

I didn’t know until I looked through my photographs just now, that instead of looking at the man who was trying to shake his hand, Prince Philip was fixed on my camera. I did have a pink razor clam head piece by Louis Mariette on at the time… So perhaps he thought I was about…

ZIK’R by Karen Ruimy & Youth

When music and dance blow the dimensions apart and you find there is no use for words because the passion and the expression, the emotion and the rhythm simply takes over and takes you into a zone where nothing can touch you, nothing can break you, nothing can distract you.

Cambodia

The sun is shining. It’s warm. Very warm. The tuk tuks and scooters are everywhere so the engine noises and fumes fill the air. Either on the roads or parked up on the side with a hammock strung up while the driver sleeps off his night shift. The dust, the smells, city life. The diversity…

Angkor Wat

Where tree roots grow like liquid rock. Everything around you is very much alive, yet speaks of what was past, what was lost. Set in such peaceful surroundings, yet the walls are screaming so loud. I’m going to let the images speak for themselves, as you will see, they do… All images are copyrighted to…

Monet
