During a visit to the island of Murano, Italy
Beautiful West End Sunset
Pristine waters in St George, Bermuda
First Ivan and Katrina, now oil.
From a night of making chapati by kerosine lantern--spectators standing by.
Is it dry out there yet?
The lights go out on the Gulf of Mexico.
Once you pop...
Walking past Marina City on a sunny October Saturday.
Never too old to jump in a pile of leaves!
Wandering NYC...
Our prayers go out to the Gulf Of Mexico.
Manatees trapped in the springs of Northern Florida with the onslaught of the oil spill.
Wandering the streets of NYC.
Kids playing on the 4th of July in the Grass flats of the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  Oil will destroy this area in the next month.
Hope's hair getting snagged in the breeze.
Driving from the Jimmy Carter center in Atlanta.
This shrimpboat was grounded on the shore as the oil overcame the Gulf of Mexico.
Caught watching and smiling for it.
I saw this shrimpboat stranded on the beach when the oil spill closed in on it in Bon Secour, Alabama.
Finger painting swiftly turned into "feet" painting at summer camp.
A lioness enjoying some "lunch" in Kenya.
Startled by her own yawn.
