Even though I regularly make fun of parents that overschedule their children and even though I know that what’s best for most children is to play and enjoy sports and activities, instead of using them as a veiled attempt at the NFL or college scholarships…..

The French Quarter of Panama City is a very exciting place for a photographer. Every angle you look, you see something unique and interesting the old architecture, shadows in the empty buildings, people on streets, small shops.
