It's been my pleasure to know David and his wife Juanita for a few years now and he is one heck of a great guy. He has worked as a reporter and photographer for DigImperialBeach.com. We worked together of the City of IB's 60th History Exhibition and have come to know David very well. On a day like today I want to wish my very good friend David Smith a very "Happy Birthday"
Here is some of David's great work and some photos of him I hope you will enjoy!:
