A happy story for once.

I sent this to Jeff Olson, might as well share it with you too.

We had the SuperGirl surfing championships in Oceanside this weekend. Here is an article in the Union Tribune.
The picture below shows surfing star Bethany Hamilton with young adaptive surfer Liv Stone.  Bethany of course lost her arm in a shark attack many years ago. She is now a serious role model for many surfers and disabled people.

I was lucky enough to shoot her at Trestles a few years ago. What a beautiful person, inside and out. Here are a couple shots I took below.

An incredible role model for girls like Liv, and what a positive legacy she is creating and leaving in this occasionally awful world of ours.
