photo of the week
Every week I'm on the road I choose a photo of the week. Sometimes it's a fantastic photo, other times it's all about what that shot meant to me. Be sure to let me know what you think.
The Danakil Depression in north east Ethiopia is a stunning collection of salt pans, heat and the most atrocious smell you can imagine in parts. At up to 116m below sea level it is an incredible thing to see. It is VERY hot (got to 52 degrees when I was there) and there is camel riding involved, however its one of the most stunning natural phenomenon I've ever seen. If you are close - GO!
We visited the Mersi (pronounced mercy) tribe in Ethiopian's Omo valley who are famous for their huge lip plates. This incredibly pretty young girl was clearly born with a cleft pallet and we wondered if that made her inherently so much more beautiful. She hasn't started her lip plate yet and just struck me how pretty she was. I've got so much better photo's of the tribe but I keep coming back to this one.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
