Triple D Game Farm — Going back through my archives, I had forgotten that I love photographing wildlife such as this young male tiger. Not surprising as I got my start at the Triple D.
Minnesota in the early 1960s — I think today would have been my parents’ 50+ wedding anniversary. They are pretty amazing. ♥
Oaxaca, Mexico — In December 2012, in a challenge by two same-sex couples, the Mexican Supreme Court found unconstitutional a Oaxacan state statute that defined “marriage” as between a man and a woman for procreation. Today, the United States Supreme Court considered the same question in a challenge (again, by two same-sex couples) to California’s Proposition 8, which provides that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized” in California. The Court’s opinion should be issued in July. My fingers are crossed that justice will prevail in my country.
San Martin Tilcajete, Mexico — The day we met, he was not participating in the festival preparations. He was in the back of the compound, with walker in hand. I offered to help him shuffle along, realizing that the offer was motivated in part by my impatience at how slow he was moving. He declined — quite happy to continue his shuffle. I could learn a lot from him.
