In some parts of the world, household chores include herding camels. This young boy in Kenya showed amazing skill and maturity, herding these huge animals across large distances.

I'm based in Singapore, a medical doctor by training; photography and my day job at Singapore's Health Promotion Board keep me happy in equal measure. I love travelling - especially to off-the-grid places, where the wifi is weak.
