    • Just another Day

    • Stare Down

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • The Sally Light-foot Crabs cruising the beaches and lava rocks in the Galapagos Islands were beautiful to watch. They start out black when they are young but change to have a brilliant red and blue coloration when they become mature and toxic to...
    • Break

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour
    • I was walking through Rome late one morning, growing tired from the morning’s journeys, when I saw this man sitting alone along the sidewalk. He looked as if he needed a break—physically, mentally, and emotionally. I paused for a moment from the...
    • Bullet Ant

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • The infamous bullet ant is over an inch long and so named for the fearsome quality of its sting; supposedly the sting feels similar to being shot with a bullet. When stung, the victim may lose vision, consciousness, and be in consuming pain for...

    • Euro Punks

    • European Pioneers in Psychology
    • This was a picture I took while on a bike ride along the Danube River in Passau, Germany. The kids were listening to something comparable to the edgy sounds of early blink182, which is why I lovingly called them my Euro punk chums (because I,...
    • Kids will be Kids

    • Cultural Diversity in Health Care
    • When language became a barrier to communication we always could play with the kids. No matter what your culture is we learned that "kids will be kids" no matter where you are or what language you speak..
    • A Choice to be Made

    • England Term
    • This was taken at Lindisfarne, an island near the eastern border between Scotland and Northern England. Saint Aidan founded the monastery at Lindisfarne. He was an Irish missionary sent from Iona by King Oswald in AD635. It became the base for...

    • Haitian Child

    • Independent Missions Trip
    • Pictures like this one remind me of all the beautiful children I have met in Haiti and I often wonder about them: What is likje doing right now? Is Madeline healthy? Is Michlange in school? This is three-year-old Joselin -I met her outside of a...
    • Mysterious Simplicity

    • University of Edinburgh
    • I still haven't decided whether the mood of this picture is more ominous or peaceful, so I'll leave that up to you, the viewer. A train station is one of those things that carries with it a sense of foreign-ness and adventure, when in reality, it's...
    • Very Irish Day

    • England Term
    • We were at the Cliffs of Mohare in Ireland. One of the things I love about this picture is its emotional connection with the experience. The day was very Irish-it was windy, cold and wet. When we arrived at the cliffs, we had to walk up to the top....
    • Kelvingrove Museum
