Hi all,
Thank you for your kind messages enquiring after my whereabouts. I have been to Ethiopia doing a photography assignment for Yorkshire Water and Water Aid. I have had the honour of pointing my lens in the most disgusting holes in the ground I have ever seen juxtaposed with the most amazing people. I felt humbled by the welcome.

I will be uploading a few from the trip over the next few weeks. When you get bored with see photos of goats and cows wandering aimlessly across major highways please let me know!!

This is Kurii. She is very happy with her water supply.

Great to see you back, Jade..
This is a fine portrait, the delightful smile and the importance of your mission being emphasised by the sharp focus on the hand and the all-important tap while the focus on he face falls away ever so slightly.
Sounds like you had and extensive learning process.
