"It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement. And at worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt – 1910

PCD captured "Clown Condo" during a dusk dive off Apo Island, just across the Bohol Sea from Dumaguete and Dauin on the Philippine island of Negros. As you know, he says "I could totally live here" about a lot of the places he visits. This time he means it. Photo by PCD
