We survived our South American Excursion! Highly recommend a visit there. Fantastic history and ruins from the Inca, colonial buildings from the Spanish, amazing trekking, monasteries/churches from the 1500's... Maureen is a fantastic travel companion and it went incredibly smoothly considering it was our first international travel excursion together.

Night busses are a bit epic with oxygen deficit and overheating issues because the windows don't open. Cruz del Sur was by far the best bus option...

Met a climber/photographer at the Huaraz hostel of La Zarela (which caters to climbers) in the shadow of the Cordillera Blanca. He phrased it well when he said "It's hard to take a bad picture here.

Dusk along Portland's waterfront... PDX is one of the more attractive cities for sure... I think my camera dropped acid when I wasn't looking. The result was not planned for but I like it.

Shooting lots of kayaking lately... Rain, mist from falls, slippery rocks in lots of dripping wet forests. Rapping in over mossy loose basalt blocks for pics for 4 seconds of shoot time of a 70 foot falls... An awesome challenge and some amazing extreme athletes!

Also working for new stock agency,

Volleyball... My first real experience with it last night in Portland, Maureen brought me to watch her play at the co-ed club team night... Seems I can't just enjoy an outing without bringing along the camera... Realized shooting volleyball would take some knowledge of the sport, some better equipment, technical know-how etc etc but fun and great learning experience shooting-wise, and understanding a bit of the intensity required for the sport. Eyes tell it all!
