Mother’s Hands

My mother’s hands has been around for 80 years . They have been making delicious bread for nearly that long . Other hungry hands are waiting in anticipation to eat that bread at the moment its out of the oven.
These hands needs no scales to measure out the ingredients.
Too dry - more water , too wet more flour her hands will tell her . Touch and sight is how she knows it just right 

Three Days with the Mexico City Roller Derby Team

Last year, I went to a photography workshop in Mexico City . Spent two week shooting two stories .  The first week I’ve spent three days with the a group of young ladies who played for the Mexico City Roller Derby (MCRD) . This is the article I wrote with my images that was published in a US-based  roller derby magazine ‘Five on Five ’ . My first ever attempt at writing an article for any magazine. It was a steep learning curve as I had only a week to write 1500 words. 

My revived passion for film photography

It has been years since  I have picked up a film camera .At first it wasn’t easy - no viewfinder , no delete button , no fumbling with the white balance because  of the forever changing weather.

Yes I have made mistakes  when using my film camera -  isn’t photography a forever, continuing learning curve ? Not knowing  how my images will turn out is all part the excitement (although it turns out to be a very expensive one ).

And sometimes it can be a pleasant surprise  - like these two above!

Film photography has taught me to be patient again and not rush -with 36 exposures there is no room for firing off the  shutter and hoping for the best.
