Christmas Eve is here. Here is Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Instead of preparing my traditional fare of holiday aromas and deliciousness for the family, I’m sitting in a relaxing leather chair with dark wood arm rests, atop the crow’s nest of the M.S.

Their assignment and challenge was to capture the mobile event and share their perspective of this large international event using mobile devices solely as their camera and digital darkroom.

Time seems to be a favorite topic that has more than a mess of words and snazzy clichés for us all to live by. There have been countless songs written about it, paintings depicting it, and tales of traveling from one time to another. The list goes on, and on, and on… much like time. While […]
