No journey is greater than the one you’re on, and it is up to us to turn every day occurrence into the spectacular. It certainly doesn’t hurt when you’re lucky enough to have to travel to amazing places for business for some of these every day occurrences. I, like many I’m sure, struggle sometimes to truly appreciate that which life has blessed me with. There are days that I allow the challenge of being a parent, partner or financial custodian get in the way of the realization that I have two healthy, normally happy children and an amazing wife. There are those that say not to look back, but rather forward. For me, I find an amazing amount of solace in being able to relive and appreciate time that has already been, and photography has played a large part in that. It often allows me to reflect and remember why I should be happy and thankful.
We find ourselves in a new year, the promise of new beginnings being urged upon us. With that in mind, I’d like to reflect on a recent trip I was able to take to Portugal where the weather and humanity are warm and inviting. I am lucky enough to get to experience places like this, and for that, I am truly grateful. . .
