For almost the last two weeks…
like many people across this planet, I’ve be captivated by the spectacle that is the Olympics.
And as a photographer and artist at heart, I truly appreciate the artistry of athletics and the creative wonders such an amazing event can produce.
Given my appreciation for such things, I thought I would include some scenes that both chronicle and inspire.
These first three photos where taken when workers at the Sochi games formed a giant heart on the halfpipe in honor of the late Sarah Burke, the woman who was instrumental in getting the event into the Olympic Games.
