Wonder Children - This picture show a Yemeni child bring back fish he caught to the refugee camp.The Wonder Children are the forcibly displaced children caught in the global refugee crisis. These children have lost friends and family members as well as their homes and often childhood. Despite these losses, they continue to demonstrate wondrous resiliency. Refugee children find ways to play with what is available in their refugee camps or settlements. Despite their many challenges - unimaginable to most - these superheroes continue to love, hope, and aspire for a better future…a very uncertain future. Governments and news outlets see refugees including children as numbers and statistics, not as wonder children. They describe the record high numbers of displaced persons from, or in, conflict-affected countries. There are now 66 million displaced individuals; this is a 50 percent increase in this century alone. Conflict and violence have forced each of these 66 million individuals to abandon most of what they know. During the minute it takes you to read this, 20 more people are displaced. Ninety percent of them live in developing countries, the remaining 10 percent live in European or North American countries. Most live in informal settlements that lack proper facilities, but wonder people find creative ways to make these places home. Refugee parents try to provide a meal or two a day, but access to nutritious foods is limited. Drinking water is often scarce. Decent education and health care are limited, but the wonder children find ways to learn and survive until they can return home: on average, this takes 10 years.

Almond Fields - This breathtaking and expansive almond field is part of Harris Woolf farms in the Central Valley region near Modesto, California. Photographed during late February, the almond blossoms signal that the first phase of production (blooming) is complete and ready for the second phase (pollination) to take place. I captured this image from the air using a custom equipped DJI drone and a 50 mm camera lens. The final photograph is a composite of 32 images stitched together.

In the Cattle - Cattle are enormously important to the Suri tribe in Ethiopia. Cows are a store of wealth to be traded, and a source of milk and blood.

Moment for Yourself - If things come easy to you, then you don’t value them. No, I’m not trying to give you another “motivational” talk. Just answering to all the questions, I get. I know it’s a little bit tricky to wake up in the early morning. I know it’s not easy. BUT why should it be easy? Once you have done the morning walk or stretch, you will value the moment more since it wasn’t easy in the morning. You might feel like you had achieved something even before the day started! Early mornings are the best times for yourself!

Using royal gold and blood red with touches of forrest elements solidifies the image.
