In the last four years, I have been to more countries that most people have traveled in their entire lives. That isn't a sentence meant to show off, but it is to give you an idea about the tens of thousands of photographs I have that I STILL haven't really gotten around to editing. Yesterday, after the news of Nelson Mandela's death, I remembered how I had once been in his cell on Robben Island while I visited South Africa. Then I remembered I really never posted of my month in that incredible country. It seems like a distant memory now, but so many things still stand out. I remember my first night in Cape Town, we got held up at knife point. Definitely a crazy experience for me. It was all ok though, and the rest of the time was so amazing. Cape town is an incredible city. One of the most beautiful that I have ever seen. I got to explore townships, we toured the garden route, went down to Cape Hope. Camped in the craziest of places with my backpack as a pillow. It was a surreal experience. I am so lucky. It is weird going back to see these images. I didn't even have a great camera at the time, but it was definitely during the time when I knew that photography was going to be my biggest passion. These images are definitely not up to par from what I know I can produce now, but that doesn't matter. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to travel, so even if the images are horrible, I will still look at them with the biggest smile on my face. I can't wait to go back into my files and explore trips I have yet to edit. Its going to be great. This was my time in South Africa. A country that will always hold a special place in my heart. Also, I hate baboons. They steal your precious donuts.

It was further proof that people who have almost nothing, can still have the biggest smiles on their faces. So humbling. More people need to realize how good life is. These kids. These kids are heroes to me.
