A family watching the sunset over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show. They are on an overhead walkway and the shot is taken from a bridge below.
Last week Dale Schmitt and I opened our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.
This image was taken in 2014 on a beach in Cancún Mexico where everyday there is a beautiful moment at sunset.
I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of Photojournalism. This was taken at a Chicago White Sox Game at US Cellular Field. It was the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend and very hot. This young mother was concerned about her child and kept leaving her seat to take her baby to the shade and let the new father enjoy the game. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.
I was sitting on the beach with my telephoto zoom lens and saw this toddler running towards the waves by herself. Where are her handlers I thought. A young runner ran in front of her and she turned and ran away from the water. She sat down as I zoomed out and saw this group of young ladies paying absolutely no attention to her.
The little girl sat and played in the sand by herself. Well who am I to judge, maybe she wanted it that way. I assumed one of the young ladies was her mother but then I moved on.
I went to U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago on Independence Day to see the White Sox beat Baltimore on Adam Dunn’s walk off home run. OH what a great game when you get to see your team hit a walk off home run! However, as usual the crowd was almost as entertaining as the game itself.

In Italy you see more bicycles and motorcycles than cars. I am sure one of the reasons for this is the high cost of gasoline. Whatever the reason, the people walking and riding in Milan seem more fit that most people you see in American cities. It is hard to tell in this image who is having more fun, the pedaling father or dozing child. You can buy a print of this image on my commercial site by clicking here.
