Since I’m not on here as much……..for those who care to “keep up with me” you can follow me on Instagram. I’m on there a lot and I post my own photos. My username is Organicfem.
" Inspired by South Africa’s vibrant daily street life, photographer Ed Suter began a personal project shooting street style photographs of fashion, graphics and street art.
This collection was published by Quivertree Publications in 2012 in a book called ‘Sharp Sharp’, showcasing the great style on the streets of Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
After photographs from “Sharp Sharp” were exhibited in Paris, Ed stopped off in Accra, the capital city of Ghana, on his way home to spend a week shooting on the streets there.
“Sharp Sharp was all about energy and colour and I was hoping to find that in even more intensity in Accra. The colors of the fabrics everywhere in Ghana were beautiful and intense, but they weren’t all I focused on. I also photographed young boxers, hand painted signs and what felt like incongruous Soviet-style architecture. The work in Ghana became more about portraits on the streets rather than images shot in what has become typical street style, mostly due to the brightness of the light and quite a lot of clutter I wanted to avoid in the backgrounds.”
TWO-BROWNGIRLS : TWO-FAITHS
While both of us were studying at University, we came across this post by Dora Dalila,which inspired us to think about how our own friendship stretches across two faiths.
Centuries of tension have existed between Muslims and Sikhs; whether we look at Mughal history, 20th Century partition or even modern day media headlines, there seems to be a constant fuel added to the fire between both of our religious communities.
Throughout University we both started to look deeper into our own faiths and had endless discussions with each other about God, religion etc. Through this dialogue we learnt how our faiths are clearly unique but also how they share numerous similarities too.
We don’t agree on everything, but our mutual respect for each other’s opinion proves the possibility of sharing a strong bond with someone who holds different beliefs. It also taught us the importance of a fresh perspective on what religion and spirituality really is.
Remember: We are not undermining or dismissing the shared history of bloodshed between Sikhs and Muslims. But its important we do not let this history prevent a healthy dialogue between both of our communities. This will allow us to tackle existing issues much better than if we are constantly working against each-other, fuelling hatred and racism.
We hope you enjoy this little photo-set that shows that we may do things differently, but ultimately we’re the same.

The girlfriend of a young Masai man measures and admires his hair.
Among the Masai, warriors are the only members of the community permitted to wear their hair long, which is usually woven into tiny twists that are dressed and styled with animal fat and ocher. Some then use cotton or wool threads to lengthen their hair.
When become elders and go through the Eunoto, their long locks are shaven off.

Sex for me involves making your partner orgasm but I don’t think that should be your main focus. Your focus should be on learning their body, and what makes them want more. Having a connection with the person and watching them get acquainted with my body is what turns me on. Some people enjoy meaningless sex, that’s boring to me.
