The New Owner of my Digital EOS

One of my passion in life is photography. But over the past few years my desire for creative expression in imagery has dwindled and is now on hiatus. Fortunately, my Digital Canon EOS 350D isn't out of the picture just yet. My wife has been clicking away, of late, and is posting photos in her blog at izanazuani.blogspot.com . That's her going all casual and cool.

Capoeira




I used to consider myself a Capoeirista. I belonged to Beach Capoeira group that my brother and several others decided to form somewhere before y2K. The acrobatic and combative movements were practically self taught. So ethically, we can't call ourselves Capoeiristas because we did not have an instructor (Mestre) to teach us the fundamentals and philosophy of this artform.

Today, I no longer perform the movement. My brother, however, is one of the remaining members who embraces the artform and makes it his lifestyle. Many have moved on to other sports like biking and bboying.
