Images without Borders

Being photographers, both Murray and I were shocked and riveted by the images we were seeing from the earthquake in Haiti. The photos we were seeing on Twitter were eye opening to the devastation there and yet, some of them were capable of making us smile. We are amazed by the resiliency of these people and their capabilities to survive in a country that was so poor and destitute to begin with now reduced -- in some areas -- to almost nothing.

Murray and I were invited to submit some of our photos to Images without Borders. Currently IwoB is raising money to support Doctors without Borders (Medecins sans Frontiers). World Class Photographers are donating their photos to support Doctors without Borders. All proceeds from the sale of  these photos minus the printing currently goes directly to the doctors' work in Haiti. We are excited to be a part of this! I spent a good portion of this week going through our images trying to narrow down which ones to submit. We finally agreed upon a final five. I am not going to post them here (sorry), but if you would like to see them, you can go through the almost three hundred images on IwoB or you can check them out in our album on our Facebook Fan Page here. Perhaps you will see a photo that you like on IwoB and will consider making a purchase.

Because we remember moments, not days...
