I finally finished editing my shots from Cuba. It took almost a month which isn’t too bad considering I took nearly one thousand shots down there. I had to select my thirty favorite for the gallery, see them here:
Seeing my last post Reverse Cloud, made me look for a similarly structured image. I found one I took at the famous glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón on the south coast of Iceland. There’s similarity in the colors and composition. There is even a hood ornament to match.
More than a year old, I took this shot in the first few days of 2011 in Tokyo, Japan. I didn’t have a tripod but was able to find a nice angle at the bottom of the famous Tokyo Tower. I rested my camera in the support track and was able to hold it steady long enough to capture a clear image.
A picture from the city district in London, England. A few seconds after I snapped this, a security guard banged on the window from inside the building next to me. He shook his finger, telling me photography was not allowed and motioned for me to get lost. Still got the shot.
When I saw the cluster of patterns and shapes that existed in the mix of zebra and wildebeest I decided to try a tightly framed shot. I wanted to capture the depth and busyness I was seeing. I couldn’t get out of the safari jeep so I had to shoot from a low window. I think the angle came out pretty good. I took this in Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania.
More color play. This time in Marrakech, Morocco. I took this at a yarn factory in the old medina. The afternoon sun filtered through the bunches of yarn, making the colors intensely vibrant. I would have preferred to take photos of the yarn workers but was explicitly told they don’t like their picture taken. Whenever I raised my lens, the workers would cover their faces or look the other way, even when I was pointing my camera towards them.
