The most beautiful photos

I remember that in the summer of 2013 I heard that there are people who make nice pictures and sell them, earning money to live with. I always enjoyed taking pictures. I was going through a hard time and I had no money at all. I thought I could make good pictures to sell to those who needed them. I read on the internet that there are companies who buy photos that are representative of their business, that there are bloggers who need pictures to illustrate their articles, so my dream of earning money makes what I like growing bigger.

They were tired of seeing those in the government enrich themselves on the work of their servants, then laughing shameless at the accusations brought to them.

I decided to leave my country at the other end of Europe. I met here people of all nationalities and all ages. Despite the cultural differences, I discovered the truth right away: we are all people with different qualities and flaws. We all have expectations of life and those around us, we all want to be as good as we all want a life as easy as possible. And I discovered one more thing: all the Scots are wondering about us and they’re taking off their imaginary hat before us because we have the courage to go into the big world even though many of us do not master the language spoken in the country of adoption . It is surprising that we can learn a foreign language Read More
