# I constantly get asked who beat ” The World’s 3rd Worst Photographer to 1st and 2nd place ? So to help you all with your plight is the answer , as if it matters anyway ! The all important issue is my position , bugger the rest ………” The answer to this inane question is , in
second place was Humphrey Charles Fotherington-Smythe of East Lewisham
and claiming First Place was a Semi sighted ,colour blind former
Trappist Monk named Kahant Phukkin Cee .”

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.”

– Langston Hughes

Dawns and Sunsets

Many sunsets
Gold and crimson
Have dripped on the horizon,
Weeping for the dying day.Many dawns
Have risen
In timely resurrection
From their cradles of light.Sunsets and dawns
Dawns and sunsets.
I have seen them all

John Newton Photography: A South African journey of hope

from http://www.onetaleoftwocities.wordpress.com http://www.lifeisgodsnovel.wordpress.com and 

A journey of hope (and faith)

“When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: Either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.”
