"Chasing Bubbles" by Theresa Kaplan

Zadar, Croatia

Taken May 2013

As I wandered around the Roman and Medieval ruins in Zadar, children played on them, as though they were a playground. It was a scene I had often seen in the United States except for the fact that a site that I perceived as worth visiting for its historical significance was just another playground for these children.

"Preparation" by Alexandria Petteruti

Kankan, Guinea (West Africa)

Taken October 2012  

This photo is of two co-wives, preparing a meal together. Although polygamy is illegal in the United States, it is a common practice throughout much of West Africa.
