I find that my stories and thoughts often revolve around sustainability, peace, and growth; things people can do on their own and efforts our communities can strive for in the aim of not only preservation, but enhancement of the natural worlds health as well as our own. But sometimes words don’t convey that message as well as an image can.

A single coral colony thriving on the sand flats to a green turtle quietly going about its business carries that message each and every day. By continuing to share the beauty and grace of the things we value, it becomes difficult to ignore them. With that said, enjoy and if you care to see more, I invite you to check out my Flickr feed.
