I was blessed to photograph the annual Martin Luther King Jr. parade here in Houston. I've photographed this event at least three or four times in my eight years here. I really tried to look for pictures that said this is a new world. My feeling, living here in Houston, is that Dr. King's dreams of a true melting pot of equality can come true. I look at children today, including my two children, and they don't see the world in color. I know we still have a long way to go, and I also saw that at the parade. But, that's why remembering Dr. King's message and efforts is so important. But, what I see is improvement and a bright future. you can view the gallery here .
