It's a wrap: the Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando, Florida are coming to an end! Seven days of cheers, tears, joy and laughter; intense focus and action; comraderie and healthy competition. What a week! This is one of the first photos I took at the Opening Ceremonies and it embodies everything I feel right now. Thank you Special Olympics Maryland for letting me be part of this.

With so much unrest in the country it hardly seems the right time to post something this trivial but here's a new photo
blog about a delightful tradition back home in the Netherlands. And happy new year to all of you!
The Dutch really ring in the new year with “oil balls” but of course they have a better name for these “delicatessen” only consumed around New Year’s Eve: oliebollen (of which oil balls is the literal translation.) They are deep fried scoops of dough with or without raisins and /or apples ...
New photo blog! Don't let the dark clouds in the photos in the blog discourage you! Dutch people LOVE them! But they also REALLY love very bright colors. Have a look!
This just popped up on the IG account of Penn Relays #1 Fanpage (@pennrelaysfans.) I took those photos for PennTrackXC during my first year as a photography student. It was the most exciting time - working with a wonderful team, meeting so many inspiring athletes, hanging out with the officials, working very hard and skimming on sleep and constantly challenging myself to improve. I would love to have the chance to cover Penn Relays one more time!

When I started my photography career 10 years ago I was specialized in cross country, track and field and very passionate about that. So when the occasional "running" opportunity comes my way I get really excited. This was photographed at the La Milla De Mayo in Gaithersburg, Md. Cover "GO!

Being from Europe, bread is “sacred” and treated with the utmost respect! A few months ago I decided to start baking my own bread and miraculously discovered (against all odds) that I can actually succeed in this! I developed my own whole wheat, multi grain, multi seed bread and it is delicious
Not your usual engagement photos for one of my favorite people in the world! The joy of happiness. Rosi Costa.

One nice Sunday afternoon in late Fall we were enjoying a nice beer on the beautiful grounds of Waredaca Brewing Company and were treated to a spectacular sight of equestrians, horses and dogs for the opening of the fox hunt season. They all took a break right in front of us and were treated to small glasses of specialty beers by the wonderful people of the brewery. Waredaca, Laytonsville, Maryland
