A Day in the Life - its not just an old song

Thanks Chris Collins for sharing this Inspiring story about how one man's trip to Guinea-Bissau changed his life and won him first place in the World Press Photo Challenge.
Daniel Rodrigues is a 26-year-old freelance photographer based in Porto, Portugal. After graduating from the Portuguese Institute of Photography in 2010, he was an intern for the newspaper Correio da Manhã and worked for the photo agency Global Imagens. Two years later, Rodrigues was broke. That was when a stroke of good luck — and good light — changed his fortunes.

His Turning Point conversation with Jesse Newman has been edited.

Not to take anything away from Daniel's photo, but check out these photos taken by our missionary in Guinea Bissau, Maritza (I changed original photo color to black & white). Maybe we should submit some of her photos. Just Sayin!
