Central America and Mexico

New Gallery!  New Images!

Taking a leap from my usual photo subject matter of water, rocks and trees my new gallery shows some of the many images I captured on my recent trip to Central America and Mexico. When I am traveling I usually have two cameras with me and take photos with both. One camera is a point and shoot to record places and events and it is constantly being used to capture the details of travel. My other camera is used to capture visions that stood out to me as unique and could be part of a larger project or collection. Many of the images in this gallery are religious based as I was most visually moved by these. Clearly religion and the local churches were the center of activities in many communities in the countries that I visited. I have tried to include a few of these images in this gallery as I found this part of the culture and look of the countryside to be most interesting.

Other images included in the gallery include flora and architecture of the landscape. It was exciting for me to see and capture a new landscape part natural and part cultural. I always find it interesting see how man has altered the landscape in different ways in different parts of the world to fit the look and needs of land and the culture.

Thanks for reading.
