ELLA. SRI LANKA. 2015
In the jungles of Sri Lanka, a baby monkey of the type Macaca Sinica–reddish brown colored monkeys–that are natives of Sri Lanka, feeds from its mother. These monkeys are called Old World Monkeys.
This photograph was taken in Ella, Sri Lanka, in a little dump by a tourist-populated waterfall where a large group of monkeys with giant tumors under their chins were feeding on plastic (hence tumors). They say that once manufactured plastic NEVER goes away. Imagine how much plastic we have around the world right now. We, as the creators of these vices, need to be more conscious of what we use and where we discard our waste.
LIJIANG. CHINA. 2016
It’s 2°C, the sun is about to set and people gather on the bridge that runs across the Black Dragon Pool to watch the snow-topped tip of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain metamorphose into shades of gold.
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” – Mary Oliver
The evening when the rays of the setting sun streamed in through the arches of the pier silhouetting a girl dancing below a painted sky. A beautiful California sunset.
BAISHA. CHINA. 2016
A stroll outside the colorful, Naxi village of Baisha, toward the homes of the Bai people and away from the crowd of visitors, there is peace and a quiet diatone. Unlike on the visitor filled streets of Baisha where the sun shines, brining out the colors of the village and the tie-and-dye masterpieces hung out to dry, the sun doesn’t shine so brightly here, letting the calming shades of blue spread a calming innervation.
