paula pins the planet PHOTOBLOG

I developed my interest in photography when I was very young, even before I develop my passion for traveling. Some of my earliest memories were spending hours looking at photographs of amazing places around the world in magazines and books (right! we didn’t internet yet – now I feel old!).

I finally was able to buy my first film camera with my first paycheck when I was 15 years old, and since then I never stop learning more about my greatest passion.

There is something magical behind a kid’s smile when they see a camera for the first time, the lighting of a sunset behind the high mountains in the Himalayas, the trees reflecting in the lake creating two images of the same beauty and capturing an animal in movement during an African safari!

Here you can find incredible photoblogs where I illustrate each country I have visited with my photography and stories behind.

Namibia Photoblog

The epic beauty of Namibia is something that has to be seen with your own eyes and it is almost impossible to describe some of the incredible things to do in Namibia or to take a photo that represents what is in front of us.

Visit Namibia through my Photoblog and experience the magic!
