So picture this: me, Stella, Faith, and Tsiamo, on a whim, decide to escape the hustle and bustle of Antwerp for a little countryside getaway in Belgium. We were craving some peace and quiet.


We ended up at my family's old home, a place filled with memories and relics of generations past. And that's where the fun began. Stella, being the adventurous soul she is, stumbled upon this quirky mishmash of clothing—a sombrero here, a coat there, and some boots to top it all off. Turns out, they were all pieces from my family's history, each with its own story to tell.


With a mischievous grin, Stella decided to put them all on. And boy, she looked like a character straight out of a storybook! The sombrero added a touch of the Wild West, the coat exuded elegance, and those boots? They screamed adventure.


Some of life's greatest adventures come when we least expect them.

Against the backdrop of rolling hills and golden fields, Stella transformed into this mesmerizing blend of ruggedness and grace. It was like witnessing a collision of worlds, but in the most beautiful and harmonious way possible.


It was a reminder that some of life's greatest adventures come when we least expect them, and that's what makes them all the more special.


So here's to serendipitous encounters, to embracing our inner Wild West cowboys and African queens, and to capturing the magic of it all through the lens of art photography.
