Monkey family

I got to test my brand new zoom lens in South Africa and Namibia! Lucky me! here´s the first post of (hopefully) a lot with photographs of this amazing countries and their landscapes and animals.

This was my first time in Africa, and for sure I´ll be back, to know other countries and back to these two that are absolutely breathtaking. When I sort the pictures trying to choose the best shots to post, it´s not easy. Beside the amount of pictures taken, it´s how stunning a lot of them are. I take breaks and remember the trip, and how I felt. And now I feel blessed that I got to see all this marvelous this nature has to offer.

In this occasion I´ll show you this family of monkey, mother, father and baby. Very cute!










Travel Theme: Smoke and Mirrors

I´m back (again)! It´s been a long time! I went on holidays, came back, tried to change my job unsuccessfully and started my own tiny business. And the excuse to post is this week´s travel theme!

Travel Theme: On Display

If you want to see things on display you should go on a Sunday afternoon, to San Telmo neighbourhood in Buenos Aires. Mainly the antique´s hot spot in the city, there´s a lot to see and listen.

WPC: Happy

Happy, that´s how this kids were when I took them them the pictures they wanted (and I wanted too). This was one of those strange episodes in Asia, they didn´t speak english, we didn´t speak their language, but we managed to communacate. And this is they and I happy.

Travel theme: Animals

What I love about photographing animals is that they don´t pose. Sometimes they notice you´re there, sometimes they don´t. Sometimes they hide, but generally, they don´t. And at the end of the day you always get a natural ¨pose¨, sometimes NatGeo style, ok, that´s probably an exaggeration!

Man´s best friend first!

My first Holga roll

A couple of months ago I made  my first try with my very new Holga, finally I developed the roll, and the results are… not worthy to show. I ¨saved¨ only a few, and here they are.

As you may note, there´s a lot to improve, like focus and the light. As it was the first time I used it, I didn´t ¨tape¨ my Holga, to see how much light it leaks. Now I´ll try mummifing it.

WPC: Growth

Well, a little late but here it is, the Growth Challenge. I´ll try to keep my blog updated although I´ve been working nearly twelve hours a day this week, so my energies to turn on the computer are very low at the end of the day. Next week is gonna be the same, so plase, be patience.

I guess by this point of the civilization everybody knows about Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia. Some of these temples have trees grown on top and around them. I´ve been told these trees keep the temples standing as they are so old they would fall if they cut out the trees.
