This is part of my strong women series.
This woman is old – very old by Rwandan standards.
She sits almost immersed amongst her vegetables.
What has see seen?
What strength she has to have not closed her eyes for good.

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).

    What a wonderful market shot – love the angle and how the roof frames the picture.
