Boys taking a break from playing football (soccer) in an open banana patch. This is in rural Jamaica and any open space is just as good for a few kicks. As you may notice the ball in the lower right hand corner is the color of the ground. This is an area of the island where bauxite mineral is mined and the dirt has a bright reddish color. Mom is going to have a hard time getting the red stain out of those jeans!
This is so much fun......
What you looking at? Pebbles at the beach.
The Boogie Boarder
A heated standoff between an Occupy Charlotte demonstrator (on the right) and an Anti-abortionist. The anti-abortionists descended on the Occupy grounds to steal the spotlight. Needles to say the cops had to intervene. Freedom of speech is so much fun.

West end view of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. One of a series of photos I took over a 24 hour period for the Light Factory's 2011 City Block Project in Charlotte NC. The building to the left is the Duke Energy building which changes colors on the hour each night. In this shot it was green and reflected off the buildings close to it. Through PP I extended that to the main HOF building on the right.
Duke Energy Tower - Charlotte NC. This new addition to the city's skyline has been spectacular.
