Some landscape and creature captures from the last few months. Enjoy!
Recently, I visited the socialist paradise that is Cuba. Instead of squirrels they have these little scurrying lizards. There’s a guy in Havana that serves coconut ice cream in a coconut. Good times.
We crashed a wedding party in Taiyuan and the next day headed for Beijing to see The Great Wall and The Forbidden City.
During my two weeks in China I visited the Shanxi Province capital of Taiyuan as well as Huangshan Mountain and the Northern city of Datong where you find the Yungang Grottoes and cave statues. It’s a beautiful country with lots of history. Try the green bean buns.
The thing that stuck with me about the landscape of Mexico was the variety. It transitions so quickly from sandy beach to hilly rocks to jungle.
There are two cool cameras in my home that I would like to show you. I bought a Duaflex IV from a yardsale on the side of a highway in Nowhere, Ontario. I gave that one to a friend but it was cool that it required replacement. This on came from a guy on Craigslist and it came with the original box and bulbs too.
There are two cool cameras in my home that I would like to show you. I received this hand-me-down Praktica LB from my father.
It was manufactured in Soviet Germany likely in the the 1970s. I should really ask my dad about the camera’s origin because he lived in small town Nova Scotia.
