"I don’t trust words. I trust pictures.” ~ Gilles Peress
I've always said that I believe very little of what I hear and only some of what I see. The same goes for photographs as I know now that they can be edited and manipulated in many ways. I still often get asked by many of my friends and people why I would want to visit some of the places I do - especially Antarctica and Tanzania in Africa.
It's great to be able to punch a few buttons on my cell phone and pull up some images from my Instagram account and show people a few pictures of these places. I can tell by the looks on their face that they understand why I would want to travel so far away into places that many perceive to be dangerous. At least I can show them why I wanted to see certain places in person.

Above is a photo of myself in Paradise Bay and below is Paradise Bay which I thought was the most beautiful part of Antarctica which is saying a lot.
This ship seemed so small compared to the other ones I saw and compared to the glaciers surrounding it
The sun would go down around 11:00Pm and come up around 3:00 AM
The glaciers were so much bigger than I expected and it really was not as cold as I expected. It was generally around 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
This was the closest thing I saw to a sunset and it was almost midnight
The following photos were taken on in Massai Land and on safari in Tanzania.
These zebra kept running back and forth past these lions. I was so scared they would get caught playing their "game".
