Part of a series of shots I took in the Democratic Republic of Congo when I was a volunteer photographer on an Aid trip.

Nikon D200
50mm prime lens.

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 floors me…Her eyes have pierced me right through…it is almost as if I have to avert my own from her unflinching look.
