These three shots from Costa Rica tell of the country the country as a whole. It is a land of contrasts, and a land of great adventure.

Some unforgettable images from India.

These are some images of india that still haunt me. The first is the one legged man trying to carry his goods around, with his children in the "back seat." The second is the absolute peacefulness of the dog, just lying in the sun, as anyone who has read Peanuts knows, that is what dogs are born to do. The third is the absolute beauty of the little girl in her mother's embrace, on the floor of one of the large hospitals in Jaipur.

Contrasting old and new elements in the India of today.

These photos represent the ancient and modern India. The first is an example of craftsmanship that is really ancient (over 1000 years old), found in the Qtub Minar complex. The second needs no explanation. The third is architecture from hundreds of years ago, built for the rulers, and their minions.
