Happy Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8th. This internationally recognized day celebrates women’s accomplishments throughout history. In addition to honoring women’s achievements, IWD brings attention to the many injustices committed against women. It also calls for more progress toward gender equality.

International Women’s Day was first celebrated in the United States in 1909. European countries began to celebrate International Women’s Day in 1911. Today IWD is observed as an official holiday in many countries. People around the world now celebrate IWD by holding fundraisers, festivals, demonstrations, and conferences, as well as by giving awards. The International Women of Courage Award is presented by the United States Department of State. It honors international women who have promoted women’s rights in their own countries though courage, leadership, or resourcefulness.

In 1975 the United Nations (UN) celebrated IWD for the first time. Each year, the UN chooses a theme for IWD. Previous themes have focused on peace, women’s role in conflict resolution, fighting poverty, and empowerment.

These are series of photos which are hard to categorized in a specific group, they are basically the result of either being…

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury

I couldn’t agree with Ray Bradbury more…If I leave here tomorrow I know that I’ve done everything I can to get the most out of this life. We are here so briefly that we might as well enjoy the hell out of it.

Unfortunately, this afternoon didn’t quite cooperate but it doesn’t always work out perfectly – c’est la vie!

I’m out in L.A. for work today and tomorrow. I came out earlier today because I wanted to head to the Pacific to take some sunset pictures at Santa Monica Pier with my new camera. Unfortunately, work got in the way and I had to go straight from the airport…
