It’s incredible how women across the globe are independent, strong, hard working and beautiful. This lady was carrying on her head a huge basket full of fruits from the market. She was walking more than a few kilometers to reach a village where her five children were waiting for her. From taking care of children to hard work in the fields, the lives of women across the globe really aren’t easy. We all should respect women more in order to make this world a better place!
Education takes you places
I visited a local school in Madagascar. It was so nice to see all these young people hungry for education and knowledge. They all know that today ‘education gives you power and takes you places’. It’s our duty to provide to all children around the world proper education as well as offer children in poverty the opportunity to go to school.
Make up or ?!
In Madagascar (especially the western part of the island) women wear traditional facial masks, made of special wood and herbs. Masks protect them from the sun and make their skin softer. Also, their skin become whiter after wearing masks for a longer time…
Music is all they have…
Sometimes you don’t need more than a broken old guitar and a mate who would sing along with you!
‘Sittin’ on a dock of a bay…’
…Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
I met this amazing boy on the Avenue of the Baobabs. Not just chameleons know how to perfectly blend in their habitats, right?
Lady on the Avenue…
Madagascar is an incredible place full of wonders and epic nature sites, but for me, it’s unforgettable place because of its wonderful people, like this lady from the Avenue of the Baobabs. When someone is ready to offer her everything, although she doesn’t have much, you know that person is beautiful in so many ways it leaves you speechless.
Carrying woods for fire
Not all children in the world have ‘normal’ childhood. Some of them like this girl have to work from an early age, helping their mothers in every day activities like collecting wood for the fire, washing clothes in the river, taking care of younger sisters and brothers… and when they have time for play? Hm…
Life on the Avenue of the Baobabs
Can you imagine your life without electricity, washing machines, toilets or kitchen? These women can, they struggle to survive every day… life is hard! It’s incredible how life can show you not to take sooo many ‘ordinary’ things for granted, right?
I met these two beautiful girls on the famous Avenue of the Baobabs. I came to shoot sunrise which was not good due to a cloudy weather that morning. But God sent me something better than a perfect sunrise picture – two beautiful girls! We played and jumped around the baobabs like crazy! Can’t wait to visit this place again and bring toys to them like I promised.
Beautiful girl and the baobabs
‘The pure heart is a spotless mirror in which images of infinite beauty are reflected.’
It’s incredible how life can be hard and unfair, but still you manage to put the most positive smile on your face and have hope for a better days to come! Thumbs up for all the Malagasy people who are worthy of our admiration and respect!
Malagasy children – you stole my heart and my soul, I looove you all to the moon and back!
