The La Paz Street Scene — A Slideshow   3 comments

Our first day in La Paz was one of trying to adjust to the altitude and hilly streets without being run over by people and vehicles — most of the streets a narrow and bustling with activity. You learn quickly to move slowly and take your time, which is very important at this altitude (11,942 ft). We started the day with coca teas and leaves while continuing to drinks plenty of water.  We were well aware that altitude sickness is not to be underestimated.

La Paz is a beautiful city with a lot of contrasts. There are markets everywhere. The following slideshow will provide a feel of what we experienced walking the street around our hotel.

New Orleans Street Scene, A Photo Essay   Leave a comment

Over the years we have walked miles in the New Orleans French Quarter and the Garden District.
A few weeks ago while in Houston, we drove over to New Orleans for a couple of days.
Even though it was hot and humid we spent time photographing many scenes we have captured in the past —
there’s just something luring about this city.

Capturing The Moment — Street Scene   4 comments

Street Festival Art II blogStreet Scene — Image by kenne

It is for
my self-interest
that I distort
my surroundings
and myself.

Why not,
an image
is never the same
once captured.

Sometimes the moment
is better presented
when distorted —
all reality
is distorted
by our experience.
