My mind is small
My dreams are dark.
My soul is clipped
My heart is parched.

My body lies
My blood is still.
The long black clouds
Have made their kill.

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).

    Yes, sharp and with a nice punch. Seems that working in advertising can help with expressing some real stuff… ;)
