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:
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.
