I think this change will be great as it provided me with a way to share my images as well as tell the stories behind them.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to live and work in a variety of places. Not only throughout Canada and the US but as well as such places as the Maldives, Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola. I continue to travel as result of my main occupation , which is a being a Pilot. This has not only given me opportunity to travel to places off the beaten path but also to gain perspective.
The images I am sharing today I think represents just what is that I mean by the opportunity to travel off the beaten path.
On this day I flew in for the morning . We were transporting provincial government officials around eastern Angola. I spent the morning walking around the village with one of my colleagues and as usual I was taking photographs.
The kids were so fun and on some occasions inviting me into their homes to meet with their parents so they could be photographed too.
I did not have a lot of money with me that day and truth be told I think I would have started a riot had I not had enough for everyone. Instead I decided to had out small cards with a picture of the Maldives to the kids. Well they went crazy for them! At times I felt like the pied piper!
I hope you will enjoy the photos and the video.
