As a photographer I have dreamed of creating the kind of work that Damon Winter, James Nachtwey, Lynsey Addario, Ron Haviv, Colin Finlay and many other amazing people do every day. Perhaps one day I will. But for now, these folks are carrying the water…doing the heavy lifting to show the world the indelible face of tragedy, suffering, and loss on a scale that we struggle to comprehend. I follow this blog daily: Lens: The New York Times Photo Blog. Take a look. Visit their sites. Involve yourself in a reality far removed from our own…but in the most important way, inextricably linked, as we are all human. Now, let’s show some humanity.
Visit Partners in Health, Doctors without Borders, and help, please. It does make a difference. And if you do, email me. I’ll send you a 10×15 print of any image from this blog to say thank you. I’m not a registered 501(c)3…..I just want to help in the biggest way possible. (Empty hands, but full heart….)
with deep respect, Keron

you are a water carrier for sure.
by the way, i contributed to both of those organizations immediately. My faves. 🙂
I know you did….I am simply walking in your shadow. Now….tell me which print you’d like to have. : )
Aside from doing good works, you are doing good works. As for the Lens web site, I too, go there frequently. I was taken with the drive-in movie photographs by Carl Weese. His photo captioned “Powell, WY” is not correct. We had an interesting exchange about the Powell drive-in. Memories…
Well do tell! I’m fascinated by this Powell thing that keeps popping up. All thanks to you and Anthony in Coupeville. But wasn’t there someone else there with a Powell connection??? Maybe Paul Richert-Boe?
Thank you for your kind words.
Thanks for sharing this! Photojournalism is such a different animal unto itself!
