For those of you who know me, you know I am a very serious and concerned photojournalist.  Sometimes the issues become so overwhelming that without a smile and/or a brief snicker, it would hard to continue.  The photo above is one of those times.

Many of you also know that I am working on a photographic project concerning the International Peace Bridge between Canada and the U.S.  Unfortunately the exhaust fumes from idling diesel trucks cause disease and sometimes death to people who live in Buffalo, NY’s West Side.  And this was the main reason why I attended the conference.

More photos of the 2013 Conference on the Environment will appear here this coming week.  Please stay tuned.
