How Travel Put The Thirty-five Cent Sale Into Perspective

posted on 2nd of february, 2012

Thirty-five cents. It seems like such a meager amount when I'm in Canada. Perhaps it can buy a cookie, a few candies, or in my city, a call on a payphone. For most living in "Westernized" countries, this meager amount is barely worth keeping in your pocket due to the massive increase in the cost of living over the last few decades.

I think it is one of the things that photography can give you - a chance to see and then tell the story. If you are brave enough, talented enough, with big enough heart. Somebody said that - who was it? - that to be a photographer you need a steady hand a big heart. Photography can help those communities too - by telling the story. We all know that one photo is worth a thousand words! I hope people like you will help to change the world for a better place. All the best and thank you for the blog (and the previous one too!).
