1. These photos were taken in the Casco Viejo neighborhood of Panama City, Panama. To me, these images symbolize how intertwined the Half Full and Half Empty elements of our communities really are. On one side, you have a newly renovated, luxury hotel that caters to American and European tourists. Then literally several inches over, you can see what living conditions look like for the vast majority of actual Panamanian residents of the area. Both Halves of the Glass.
2. This photo was taken in the West Ward of Newark, New Jersey. For more, see post entitled Welcome To Our Neighborhood.
