This one is not in the charity series. I took it at Port Melbourne because I thought it served as a great analogy for adventure. It captured the last moment of contact with the known before leaping off into the unknown.

G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).

    this reminds me of that moment seconds before i jumped out of a plane with a skydiver strapped to my back … i’ve always thought of that moment as a metaphor for how we should live our life … to take chances and be brave and corageous. you have captured that moment beautifully.

    Thanks Rae. I took it a few days before I went to Africa on an AID trip. I was pretty nervous about the trip so I used this photo as inspiration!

    How good is this?? You’ve captured the exact moment of take-off. Not surprised that it has sold. Well done Melinda! Beautiful tones also.
