For a photographer, Panama affords not just gorgeous vistas but streets of gold. Why gold? Because at every turn, around every corner, there is life. It is happening all day long, every day. These streets are rich, but not in money. They have something else going for them -- a life that is hard fought. Walking those streets has given me the chance to see and experience the culture of Panama. They are the Vistas y Calles De Oro -- "pure gold".
