Madagascar Boats…

Monday, May 12th, 2014

I was just going through some of the photos I took on our honeymoon the other day and stumbled across these.  A typical Madagascar style fishing boat out in the bay at sunset.  I loved it there and would really love to go back some day and shoot more photos, one of the most mystical places I have ever been to.

Kids of Nosy Be

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Nosy Be island is a small, tropical island off the northern shores of Madagascar.  I recently went there on my honeymoon.  It’s a crazy place!  Most of it’s inhabitants probably survive on just a couple bucks a day and live in very poor conditions.  Most residential areas are made up of shacks and old broken down buildings.  It was strange to be staying in a 4 Star hotel and just outside the gates, people had nothing.  I couldn’t help but feel guilty everytime we returned from a day trip and saw these kids playing soccer in the field.  I walked down to them one day and tried to communicate with them but no such luck, absolutely NO English.  Pictures are definitely the universal language.

Low Tide

This is the harbor on Nosy Be Island, Madagascar.  The tide goes out so far that the boats are left stranded for a period of time in the mud.  It looks pretty crazy.
