Photo: when the snow falls, peace generally follows…

Ascot, snow, relaxation, black and white

I did my masters near the town of Ascot (near the famous horse racecourse). One day it snowed on campus, and the giant conifer tree in the fields was grandiose. It was silent and very relaxing. I find the empty bench is inviting us to sit, ponder and wander in our own thoughts, next to a very wise soul… It is important to possess a place you know you have in order to find peace of mind, if only for a moment in this crazy life…

Photo: Kid in Congo trying to understand what I am doing in his village

This picture was taken when I was working in a little village called Azumba, 18 hours by motorbike into Ituri province, North Eastern DRC. This was an extremely secluded location and whilst the accommodation for the training course and subsequent plant clinic development was extremely basic, the villagers were lovely people and took great care to make sure I had a great lasting impression. I still do, and look forward to seeing them in March this year!

Photo: a kid playing in a mechanical playground

IN DRC, I regularly visit a factory where they process various agricultural products, such as cacao, vanilla pods and papaya oil. This kid, the son of one of the managers, was playing in the mechanics workshops, with some random motorbike parts. He just looked so happy! I am happy by how this picture came out.

In North Kivu, in Democratic Republic of Congo, I regularly visit a factory where they process various agricultural products, such as cacao, vanilla pods and papaya oil. Mathias, the son of one of the managers, was playing in the mechanics workshop, with some random motorbike parts. He just looked so happy! The picture came out better than expect. I printed it out for the family, and now sits in their living room. Hopefully I will see them again soon!

I just took this picture because his hands were in an interested position. We all do this pose, but rarely think about it.
Love the bunny as well!
