Getting the opportunity to use one’s vocation or avocation to further a worthy cause is something that nearly all of us seem to aspire to, but don’t always fully pursue or know how to go about. Since everyone who visits this innovative site (and I emphasize ‘in’) lists travel either as his or her business or hobby: the project I’m about to mention may be your perfect chance.





I regret that I have not been able to help Mr. Siwak with a photo from the Comoros (my trip to that section of the world has been delayed various times), but ever since finding out about his project- I’ve made sure to carry along his artwork on all my journeys. Fred has assigned me two different butterfly paintings and I tend to think that he is insightful enough to know the esoteric significance of this vivacious creature (especially as it pertains to the human soul or ‘psyche’ as the ancient Greeks put it).


Though the project does not have a preferred method for the artwork to be shown (it can even be handheld by the photographer), I prefer using eye-catching people to hold it up for the camera.



One very peculiar experience I had was in Cuba, where I was approached along Havana’s famed boardwalk (Malecon) by one of the ever-present harlots scouring the tourist areas for a single male customer-- fully knowing the harsh economic realities that had forced this young lady into such a profession, I figured that a small handout in exchange for utilizing her as a model for the project would be a fair tradeoff.cuba



Though adding the few remaining uncovered nations to his list is Fred’s priority at this time, he is always looking for additions to his project and of course does not mind having various images from one country or specific locale.
