Life is good lately and the internet is slow . . . hence my lack of posting. I have some random photographs from El Obeid which is growing hotter by the day. Hopefully within the next month the rainy season will begin. Last night A huge dust storm blew through Kordofan which means the rains are coming and this desert is transformed into green fields . . . I’m so excited for this.

Elections in Sudan . . . there are so many different opinions. For many Sudanese there is a sense of pride in the elections, these are the first held in nearly 25 years. For many there is a huge frustration as the two largest opposition parties, SPLM and UMMA pulled out of many state elections and completely from the presidential race. I wish I could say more, but honestly these elections are more complicated than I can begin to explain or even understand myself.
So I just went out to shoot photos, I wish I could post them all, but I’ve sent the best of the images to Zuma Press so keep your fingers crossed that something sells!

Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto . . . the words from on of my favorite singers, Mercedes Sosa. It’s not only a song about love for a man, but love for life, para todo que nos da la vida. It is a beautiful song my mother and my aunts have always played in our home and her voice and words have become the ones I always take with me. Some of these pictures reminded me of this song.
