I was in the Democratic Republic of Congo…we pulled over to the side of the road to buy some water and this guy and his mates came over to sell us some food. Love his face and eyes.

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).

    Nice B/W what I like about it is despite the heavy weight on his head he still manages to smile.
