So I’m not a good photographer. On a recent dpreview.com challenge, I was placed 32nd. Out of how many entries, I don’t know. But 32nd? That’s getting sorta low. But I didn’t take that particular photo with the intent of winning contests with it. There was a challenge and I entered it with a photo I had. Nor am I a particularly huge fan of photo editing software. I have it but don’t use it given a fairly large time crunch, which is daily manifested. Okay, okay, photo taking is just not that big of a deal for me. I have a camera to capture the moments I’ll experience here in South America. And I will want to. The pristine snow of the Andes with a breathtaking blue canopy and the throat-piercing air that accompanies it, deserves being photographed. Granted, air can’t be. Look at a photo, though, and you can almost breathe it. That, Lord willing, will be a reality. With a board strapped to my feet and the wind in my face, it promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Also, the dusty wildness of the Paraguay Chaco, the flocks of swarming doves, the smell of burnt powder and the end-of-a-good-day smile that can only be shared with a good buddy. This too, needs capturing and recording. But, for now, for this moment, here are staff pics from here.
That is all for now. Be back later with more……maybe.
