My Friend Bob

I've swapped a couple of notes with my friend Bob over the past couple of days. We've known each other for almost forty years now, since we were in high school. Since then, he's gone on to do quite well and owns a high-powered economics firm in the San Francisco area. Ten years ago, he and his wife Yukari adopted a lovely Chinese baby they named Annike. They took her back to China this past spring to visit her orphanage and see her homeland.

In addition to his other talents, Bob is a helluva good photographer. He put together two exceptionally beautiful online photo books based on the trip. One is basically a record of their trip. The other is about Bob's impressions of China as seen through the faces of the people he encountered there. I recommend taking a look at them both.

Thanks for sharing these! Bob is an incredible photographer, and the layout is fantastic.

Also, Annike is adorable and I'm sure she'll be proud to have this book!
