The “Moving Albania” series by Belgian photographer Frederik Buyckx

These pictures were truly an exciting discovery for me. At first, they looked like they were taken years ago, but the sad reality is that they are as fresh and brutal as ever! If you’ve ever visited Albania, as a foreigner, then obviously you have seen the ever expanding city limits and countless buildings, big […]

Learning to be tough for your own child!

Recently we had to rush to the emergency room when our son slipped on his hands falling face first on a judged piece of broken marble stair step. The whole thing happened suddenly, while he was playing with other kids, only a few steps away from where my wife, I and my parents were all […]
