I love these pictures of residents in Nairobi and the feelings that they exude. They aren't your traditional models. But they are beautiful, serene, dignified, and very happy to have their pictures taken for Love Spring Summer 2012. They exude the type of confidence that models normally...

to my Amazon Kindle and am rediscovering my love for books (anything from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" to the Millenium series). One of my favorite books is "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. It is a simply written and beautiful book that really hits home now as I try to determine and fulfill...
