In this set it was just a day where I was watching and playing with the kids of Jagna. That’s one thing I can say I am a big kid myself so I had a great time with them. It got to the point that all the kids of the village where calling me Mr. Q. Yup Mr. Q is international now.


This series of photos is to highlight the unique eyes of the filipino people. Especially the bright energy of the children.


Sorry for the long wait but I had a lot of work to do in my digital darkroom sort of speak. This is the first set of my documentation photos of the small island Bohol, Philippines. The experience of the island, the food, the culture, the people was mind blowing for me. When I got their it was obvious that I wasn’t from there and the Filipino stares made that very clear. Willma, my friend who brought me, told me that most of the people on her island had never seen a Black man only on T.V. She also added that they would remember this for the rest of their lives. It really hit home when she told me that. So my camera was ready as soon as I walked off the plane. Here you are!

I had a wonderful time and again I want to thank Willma and her family for welcoming me with open arms. I can’t wait to go back!! Oh yea much much more to come. Feel free to reblog or repost whatever you like.

Thank You!!

On September 5th I had the pleasure of photographing the Brazilian Festival in midtown Manhatten. It was a great experience and the energy was on high. I got to see the Brazilian culture at it’s finest with their love and passion for their country. It had moments that could only be captured by my camera. So here are the results of a Brazilian Festival captured with my third eye. Hope you enjoy.
