Alternate Realities ~

After much deliberation …
my submission for this year's +Plus One Collection.  I thought this image suited the “Our World” theme, choosing a subcategory from   “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”  puzzled me for a few moments. Haha,  this tiny world contains all three!

The new edition will be absolutely chock full of AWESOME! If this photograph makes the book  I will consider it a great honour to be among such talent. Many thanks to +Ivan Makarov & the team of supporters who work so hard putting book together each year.

The Samburu Project (this year's charity), provides access to safe, clean drinking water to Kenyan communities. During my youth I had the daily chore of hauling fresh water from a nearby stream to our remote cabin … bloody hard yakka! A source of reliable clean water is such a simple yet profound gift.
