I’m behind on my blogging. I know.
I have an excuse; I’ve just arrived in Tanzania, where I’ll be for the next few months. The internet is so slow here it takes me all day to do what I could do back in the States in an hour. I’ve spent the last several hours trying to upload these photographs, something I think I’ll only be able to do monthly from now on.
I’ve been on the internet since 9 this morning attempting to pay bills and answer emails. My online banking took about 20 minutes just to sign in while the guys next to me in the internet cafe took up all my bandwidth laughing hysterically over old episodes of Tom & Jerry. The very second the page finally loaded, the power went out. Things take longer in Africa, where urgency is seldom found either in an internet connection or a hospital.
These pictures come from a recent assignment with Heifer in Cameroon and Malawi. Some of them are a bit more portraity/commercial in nature than perhaps I would instinctively do. They work well for Heifer, though, and that’s what’s important. These people are happy; their lives have changed for the better. I continue to count it a privilege to document good in the world. There’s not a whole lot out there.
