During a surf trip to Costa Rica, this little cutie was the hotel mascot. She hunted lizards on the beach and tried to sneak into your room to sleep on your bed.
Life as a dog in Costa Rica can be a tough life, but not this little one. She is living the good life. Pura Vida!

I was lined up shoulder to shoulder with 10 other photographers. We were all wondering if it was going to be worth it; we'd risen before dawn and were standing out in freezing weather.
Then, like magic, the sun broke over our back left shoulder, and the light came alive.

As often as I look ahead to the path in front of me and ponder how I might overcome the impending obstacles, I want to to turn around and appreciate the challenges of yesterday that are now achievements.
