2016, Year of Antithesis. The highs brought out the best of humanity- love, progress, and cooperation. But the lows- and there were many- illustrated the visceral ills of society. I choose to ring in the new year with thoughts for a productive and positive year ahead. I saw beautiful sights (Cherry Blossoms in my nation’s capital), traveled to new places near (Charleston) and far (Moscow), and learned stories from new friends. I am sharing four photos from four seasons.
Visiting Moscow, in December. When not in meetings, I was exploring, camera in tow, with a scarf layered up to my nose. I’m still reviewing photos- more to come from my time in Moscow, Tbilisi, and Ankara. In the meantime, here is a photographer favorite.
