Cliffs of Cosiguina
You could see from the plane as we flew down the northern coast of Nicaragua the enormous cliffs that presented themselves at the end of the Cosiguina Peninsula where it meets the Fonseca Gulf. The question was, how were we going to get to this very remote part of Nicaragua? Some of the maps show dirt roads going up the peninsula to the end -------

Children of Nicaragua

Children of Nicaragua
Clicky Web Analytics "My day job here in the US is photographing children involved in sports of all age groups from the teenies at 4-5 years old, up to high school age children. On any day I may take from 200- 600 individual and team images of the kids. So I have come to have an observant perspective towards my subjects. The children come from all ethnic backgrounds including quite a few of Spanish heritage.What I find compelling is that I do not observe the same intensity of expression here in the States as when taking children's pictures in Nicaragua. Something more comes through, Mostly it is their eyes, a soulful look, a neutral detached observation by them, waiting to see what you might do next.An innocence that has not been tampered with by a excess of TV and video games ? Act like a clown and they will reward you with a smile that washes over your heart and makes your day. The stark sadness is there too sometimes, that's when it's time for the clown act---- "
