Photo of the day. An old favorite of mine. Thinking about the more optimistic side of life in rural Latin America, where honest, hard-workers are to be found busily going about life even when most awareness is focused on the politics of the day. There are plenty of folks covering the madness.

I, for one, prefer to turn my camera away from all that and toward the mundane stories of hope and constructive lives.
