View of Silhouette Island, the Seychelles

Just got some older photos uploaded. They’re from the trip I took to the Seychelles Islands in early 2006 – midwinter holiday from work in Moscow to go meet up with family there. My dad was working on developing a marine protected area and it was a great excuse to Moscow’s January bleakness. At any rate, the islands are simply stunning. I don’t want to paint it as a paradise, exactly, because I find descriptions like that seem to de-humanize and plasticize a place, stripping them of culture and history in the search for the perfect stretch of sand, but being there was awfully nice.

  1. Wow, you have some amazing photos of the Seychelles here. I loved to watch them, give me back that holiday feeling when we were in the Seychelles.

    1. Thanks! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I tell you, every winter I miss the Seychelles more! And the food there was so wonderful – saw you ate at Le Perle Noir as well; such good seafood!

      If there were any of my photos you particularly like, btw, I’ve got prints available. Be well and I hope you’re able to get back to Beau Vallon!
