    Your wife, CIndy, makes a great point. You have to have your priorities in order of God, then family and then everything else. If you get those priorities out of order, everything starts to come apart.

    nice looking family. Your wife makes good points. That cell phone call wrapped it all up, made it look real. Nice goals for 2017. Happy New Year

    Hi Gary, I wanted to message but your business card did not have an email. If this is the wrong place to contact you please get the admin to take it down. I expect you spoke to a hundred people on your Africa trip but we met briefly on a flight to Addis Ababa in the summer 2016 both of us standing to stretch legs. I guess the airline have a system to maximise profitability squeezing in as many seats as they can! We talked politics, UK and US with both country’s now going through major change. I said to you I thought we were lucky to live in democracy where the people get a vote and the people will speak and the politicians better listen. The politicians might have the sound bites on TV but I have great faith that the civil servants working behind the scenes have systems of checks and balance to support their new leaders for the good of everyone. I have not looked at all your videos but I loved your idea of only having to offer a few hundred £ to support a business startup in Africa this potnetionally having an exponential impact on the community with jobs etc. I love photography and have been able to capture some fantastic experiences. Recently I have been asked for my thoughts on cameras and ‘how to’ type questions by friends who see me as an expert. I have been surprised at how much I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge and experiences. Enthusiasm is infectious and leaves people with lasting impressions of the encounters. It has made me think about how I might expand that sharing. So while I think about how best to share my continued photography learning experiences I want to wish you and your family well, it was good to meet you and learn about your projects. If you have a quiet 5 minutes one day, I post my photographs on a Facebook page to share. I try and put a few words with each post about how I felt or the situation I found myself in. I guess it’s my way of expressing myself some will like it, some won’t. Good luck for the future. Cheers Ben
