Adventures in The Cape & Leaving ZA...

“But then there are magical, beautiful things in the world. There's incredible acts of kindness and bravery, and in the most unlikely places, and it gives you hope.”
As I’m leaving the city & South Africa, I’m very sad with emotions going threw me that I haven’t yet process. I’ve been able to have some wonderful chats about life in general with many people & have opened my eyes even farther. I found kinder soulful spirits in Thanda that became my family. Luckily a dear friend of mine actually had taught me very well with my photography, which was my main purpose of my expedition. The rules that I once thought were “the right thing to do” have been broken with a new creative mindset of looking at the images from taking the photograph to the postproduction work in Lightroom. I’m sure that I have taught many new things along the way & showcasing a rather unique perspective of life onto them. I’ve found my inner strength back that has been buried deep in my core. It’s all about walking the path that most won’t take to actually free themselves from the fear & anxiety to go after the things that are calling them. Cape Town has been fab & temptation overload. Not cos it won the award for the art factor with the design capital of the world, but there’s so much goodness here. Loving smelling the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. I must say that next stop in Dubai before getting shipped back to Boston…
