My latest photo
My boyfriend is a G
So a little later then planned,
Another year, another photo.
These 3 photos are shot in exactly the same place with the environment around barely moved.
I am the changed character in the photos.
The first photo, to the far right, was in 2010. i had finished college. I had all the hopes and aspirations anyone would have. I had just spent 3 months in South Africa. and was excited to see what i could become.
The second was taken in 2012. I had settled for my first “real” job and was happy that i was saving money for my next photography purchases. I was ready to move on and give the old self employed gig a go.
The last was taken this year, 2014. I am still in the same “real” job and now having itchy feet to move on. The money it has provided me, helped me to afford my dream camera and a few other tools. But now i have no creative time in my life to use these newly bought tools. catch 22 hey.
Well lets see what the rest of the year brings… and the next photo in the series..
I am a South African Indian citizen and half white British.
During apartheid I was an illegal baby. According to the leaders of the time I should not of existed.
I thank you Nelson Mandela for changing that, for accepting, reconciling and celebrating all races and giving all people the every opportunity in life.
Remembering Nelson Mandela
People around the world are gathering to remember and celebrate the life of Nelson “Madiba” Mandela who died late on Thursday. Mandela led the fight against apartheid in South Africa. In 1963, he was arrested and spent the next 27 years in prison. Local and international pressure for his release escalated in the late 1980s, and on February 11, 1990 he was released from prison and was elected President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, the first black South African to hold the office.
Crowds have grown outside Mandela’s house in Johannesburg as people all over the world remember and celebrate his life. To see more images and videos from the many vigils taking place today, visit these location pages:
