Feliz año.

Feliz año

I welcomed 2017 in Venezuela this year, It was nice to take a break from current projects and to use photography more freely.

Due to the Current situation in Venezuela I spent a lot of time indoors, photographing the everyday moments that were so estranged to me as a visitor to the country. I spent my days trying the local food, drinking 'Papelon con límon' and thinking about what to tackle first when I return home.

I could have quite easily lost track of the days and woke up ten years later still in Venezuela.

I can't thank enough everyone for their hospitality and warmth.

I returned home jet lagged but very enthusiastic about 2017. I pledge to be much more active on this blog and keep some good content coming, I hope you find some value in this.  With most of my time being tied up in writing the last couple of months it's time to start looking through that viewfinder again.

Happy new year to all,

I hope this year brings good things to all of you, and we can start to see an end to all the nonsense that is troubling so many people around the world.
