Ok, I know it's been ages since I last submitted anything but I promise to try and really take control of the creative aspect of my life.

I have missed dA sooooo much! So I really hope y'all like my new photos that are still being both updated and edited!

The last year has been C R A Z Y! to say the least, so I appologise to all of those who like my work and want to see more of it.

This time last year I finally did my African Adventure! I started from Kenya, then on to Malawi and Zambia, the edge of Zimbabwe, then finally I ended up in South Africa. My experiences were absolutely mind-blowing and I learnt soooo much about myself and life during my amazing travels. I promised to all those who I stayed with to put these pictures of 'Africa' up to show the true meaning behind the continent which is one of beauty, peace and freedom.

For many, one tends to say that Africa economically is a corrupt and primitive society which in turn is nothing more than an impoverished state. For all those who believe this, I solute you in your ignorance. Although poverty and corruption is undeniably rife throughout Africa many people within the continent and all over our globe are helping to stop such unhuminatarian crimes that we in the western or richer regions of the earth witness on a daily basis through forms of media such as newpapers, TV and Youtube.

Point is; no matter how much we try to ignore it, or how much we believe that a society is far too 'damaged' for repair (famously quoted by 'The Economist' in the early 90s) the problem still remains the same. Unless we, not as a nation or society or an ethic or even a country, start to unite as one, NOTHING will be done.

From my travels I have learnt so much from some of the most friendliest and facsinating people that will stay with me until I die that I know Africa is worth fighting for. Of course some are going to find their experiences of Africa different, but I must stress that every country within Africa is unique and it is OUR duty as being part of this world to make a difference.

Within a third-world order we can learn that the gaps between our civilisation and theirs are not so different, and that we as people are ultimately one. This is where I went, they gave me places to go and see and they changed my life forever. If you want to join please look through their site!

Anyway! I hope you like my new upcoming photos!
