Barack O'Obama, cousin

I'm loving the images posted by the New York Times of President Obama's visit to Moneygall, Ireland, ancestral home on his mother's side. Located in central Ireland, Moneygall is a slightly bigger version of my own mother's ancestral home in Annascaul near Dingle in County Kerry.

Here's a shot of POTUS and FLOTUS having a sip.

Is it fun to see that Obama has Irish roots?

Alan Berner -- a great photojournalist

Alan Berner received last night yet another honor for distinguished work in photojournalism. Whenever I worked with Alan, I admired how much he brought to gathering the story, raising my own game as a reporter and writer, and delivering great images. Check out a collection of work he's done for The Seattle Times.
