International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day is marked on March 8 every year.

It is a major day of global celebration of women. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements.

Now you all know that I am a passionate photographer. One of the reasons why I love it is that it can be so versatile, it is NOT just working in a studio, it opens all kinds of experiences, because of my job, I had a (rare) insight into many different and more unusual lives. Examples include:

*the inside world of BBC, both radio and TV and its people there, the introverts and the extroverts, I'll let you figure out who's who...…

*Universities, the professors and their advanced research and researchers…

*I experienced the tensions and vigilance on the bridge of a huge Ferry in one of the busiest sea-lanes in the world, the captain, his crew and their advanced technology...

*A small shrimp trawler, the hardship of fishing during the night, managed by a skipper and his mate…

*A veterinary surgeon performing complicated operations…

*Ballet dancers in their studios, showing us the tough regime and performing their art…

*A brief glimpse into the interesting world of travellers…

*The behind the scenes of a casino, where you really get the sense of drama that goes on there often, it’s a place of ‘mysterious mood’ to me…

*Several times travelled through Europe, in a truck, a world within our world… a world people do not know much about, day and night, monotonous drives on looooong stretches of road, and the people that transport EVERYTHING we have in our homes

*As a woman, to visit and get the tour of a mosque, being shown and everything…

*A lady at her home, mother and wife, waiting for a ‘better’ day, so that I could take portraits of her, with her boys, her husband… because she was terminally ill with cancer…

*The world of horse-breeders, farmers, bikers, fish-smokers, painters, glass-artist, sculptors, singers, actors, business entrepreneurs, politicians and so many more...

* I photographed the new-borns, the young, the’ in love’, the sad and lonely, the happy, the old, been in the presence of world-famous people… people are people to me… I enjoyed it…

Yes, I enjoy it, in case you had not received that message yet, lol!

This film fits right in! Please promote it, send it to your friends!

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!

Why not view the set as a slide-show?

Also I often upload more than one image at the same time, I see a tendency to only view the last uploaded...
