Hello and Welcome to Dr Zenaidy Castro’s Travel, Arts and Photography Blog

The notable photographer, Ansel Adams, once said, “My photographs have now reached the stage when they are worthy of the world’s attention”. While my photography prowess will never come anywhere near the greatness of his, I am proud of them and happy to share my images with you.

In here, it is my hope you will get a glimpse  of my personal and artistic world and my journey in life as an artist and Photographer.  You will find insights, personal reflections and inspiration, what I stand for and what inspires me, and so many stories of what’s behind my art and photographs and behind the scenes and adventures on my travelling to different places around the world.

Most of the photos on these blog post are from snapshot as traveller, (not as a photographer) to quickly capture and get a glimpse of life of people, their culture and a sense of place.

I hope you will find  my photography/art blog interesting. If you would like to contact me for any feedback or comments, or share your thoughts about my Post, I would be happy to hear them.

Chasing Dreams

My life, until recently, has been all about chasing my dreams. I’ve been focused on the goals and achievements that I set for myself because I want to be successful in all areas! I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished because I’ve worked hard in my life and career; and who doesn’t want to see the fruit of their labor? What I also know is that I’m a work in progress – there’s still so much more I want to do and achieve, still so many places to see and visit. (more…)

What It’s Like Being a Dentist?

Meet Cosmetic Dentist in Melbourne, Dr Zenaidy Castro

For 17 years, I have built up a General and Cosmetic Dental practice in Melbourne, based on trust, compassion and understanding. I am committed to providing excellence in Patient service and satisfaction.

Being a Dentist has its rewards and challenges. It sounds like a lucrative job with a great opportunity for financial rewards, but on the other side of the coin, running your own Practice is a stressful occupation.

Studies and Stats showed that dentistry is one of the professions with the highest (more…)

My Patagonia Experience – Walking way beyond my Comfort Zone

Last June 2015, was my first landscape field photography experience. Apart from using my camera and the rest of my gears for the first time, it was also my first time to do a Mountain hiking or trekking. It was an ambitious experience for me, as I have never walked a block in my neighbourhood in all my life, and now I found myself walking and trekking the terrain of Patagonia. It was not only a test of my physical stamina and endurance, but more about of how tough and powerful is my mind tackling the challenge. It was natures walk of several days that lasted from early in the morning to late in the evening, nearly continuously without the luxury of long rest. (more…)

Moved by Mountains

All around the world, mountains rise up out of the landscape, reaching high in to the sky. These mountains have always held an irresistible attraction.

They represent impossible challenges, insurmountable obstacles that dare to be summited. To overcome these beautiful peaks is to prove oneself capable of great feats of both physical and mental endurance.

A girl named AKMIRAN

The picture below is that of a young woman named Akmiran. She has lived in one of the places we have visited and we took her photograph in Mongolian Eagle Hunter family. Her photograph is a reflection of what I learn in the Power Of Kindness And Gratitude. Read more about her stories.

Last Sept 2016, I went on a photographic workshop in Mongolia. At that time, the weather was terribly cold, and not even winter yet. I thought I was fully packed to be and stay warm. Unfortunately, my Australian winter shoes and socks were not enough to prevent my feet from getting cold.

One day, while our group wanted to take photographs of how the eagle hunter’s Eagle was going to kill a poor fox, I decided to stay in my Ger and do nearby landscape photo shooting, instead. (more…)

What The Real World Won’t Teach You – My Machu Picchu Experience

Contrary to popular belief, traveling can teach you better than a classroom, job, or relationship ever will. I’ve found that people’s definitions of “the real world” vary quite a bit. For me, the real world means packing up and leaving your comfort zone, the familiar, your safe place, and experiencing unknown things – a new place, new people who may not understand you, unfamiliar customs, the list goes on.

Last July 2015, I visited and photographed Machu Picchu. I was fortunate to see, walk and experience the world famous Incan city of Machu Picchu. After all, it is a new Seven Wonder of the World and has become one of the most recognizable tourist attractions on the planet.

Machu Picchu is very spectacular and towering 3,050 meters (10,007 feet) above sea level, the mountain trek offers unparalleled views of the famous Inca sanctuary and panoramic vistas of the surrounding mountain scenery. (more…)

You are where you are because of how much you care about what it is that you are doing.

Watch your thoughts; they become words Watch your words; they become actions Watch your habits; they become character Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

"You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you." Brian Tracey

A good day is one that's starts by remembering your blessings and forgeting your daily troubles

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore and Dream and Discover. Mark Twain
