Hello and Welcome to Dr Zenaidy Castro Arts & 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.

The WHY’s of Heart & Soul Whisperer Art Gallery. My Story.

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?

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 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.
