"Maybe we are little but we are not afraid". .That is what Fernanda said when She score a goal and the other girls team were bigger than them.
.
.I can't even explain the joy I have when I see these little girls playing and having so much fun, many of their moms and even myself didn't have this opportunity when we were little because we were girls and as girls we were not allow to do many things, even playing with other boys was bad. I wanted to be a boy because their lives seem to be better than the girls’ lives. .
.
.I'm glad times are changing and little girls can do more now.

“Fishing has changed because now we have less fish. These guys almost always catch a lot of red snappers, these are red snappers that live inside and close to the mangroves. These men are very smart they have home-made harpoons and that is how they catch them, I don't know the steps to do it but I know that the rest of the people that fish in the estruary say they are very brave.” (Photos and caption by @rosyumanzord )

“Photography is not just about taking photos... It can be listening to a famer explain from his point of view.... "you reap what you sow".”

He said to me... "You're still young, you still have decisions to make, opportunities to take, great things to discover but above all mistakes to make." I wasn't sure if that was a good thing...😕😕 And He said to me, “Don't worry. Learn from those mistakes...”

I fine-tuned my ear to the sayings of the wise.

I always wonder how it is to be in the middle of the ocean at night, I know it can be dangerous and scary, specially in rainy season when we have big storms.
.
.
. This is what the fishermen do here, they go every afternoon into the ocean and fish all night long and then comeback next morning with the results of their work. .
.
I really admire them beacuse they are so brave, there has been a lot of men that goes into the ocean and they never come back for many reasons they can run out of gas or their motor can break many things can happen there.
.

All I can say is I love fish and I'm thankfull for the people that brings the great fish to the shore.

I took these pictures yesterday afternoon. (Photos and caption by Rosa)

We love seeing incredible connections happen through photography! So excited that @estherhavens was able to meet up with @jackeuxinus in Nairobi, Kenya.
Deme was part of our 2017 class in Uganda, but recently relocated to his home country of Kenya and is working as a videographer for a TV station there. He also recently obtained a camera and is revamping his career as a photographer.
Big thanks to Esther for sending these beautiful photos and taking the time to meet with Deme before she sets out on a rural photography project. I know it was a huge encouragement for him to meet with another professional photographer!

Having this photo of my grandma is a treasure for me because she doesn't like photos I worked so hard to be able to get this photo just waiting for the perfect time to take it 😊

I love to be able to take photos of my family.
