I am the owner and sole photographer for Manifest Photography LLC, but this blog is not just about my business. It’s also a venue for me to display experimental work, or work that I had fun creating, even if the result wasn’t stellar. I hope that you will feel free to interact with me about the photos and ideas that I present here. Love it? Hate it? Let me know! If you want to see more of my photography or get information about my fine-art leasing program in Portland, Oregon, please visit www.manifestphoto.com.
In my last post I told you that I would soon be posting photos from my recent trip to Mexico. I suppose as long as you measure time like the Ents of Middle Earth, I’m doing pretty well. I still haven’t gone through and finished all of the photos from my trip, but here are several of my favorites.
My trip started with many dear friends, gathered in San Pancho for a wedding. Our diverse group from all over the world got the hair-brained idea to go for a horse ride into the jungle on a very rainy day. I packed my camera in a waterproof bag just in case, and I was very glad I did when I saw this amazing gathering of butterflies on a branch next to a stream.
When we returned from our adventure, I heard from a friend who had stayed behind that a conservation organization had released baby turtles that evening, and would likely be doing so again the next evening. This I HAD to see.
These amazing little creatures have incredible instinct and strength, despite their vulnerability.
It was a beautiful evening, and the beginning of many more great adventures.
A few days later I traveled with new friends through San Sebastian and then back for a jaunt through Puerto Vallarta.
I continue to learn many things about the generosity of the human spirit whenever I travel or interact with new people.
At last a friend and I parted ways with the others, and made our way to Chacala for relaxation and adventures of our own.
This pre-dawn photo is a 3 minute exposure of the waves lapping between the rocks on this shore. The bird you will see if you look closely was almost completely still during the entire 3 minutes, giving me a fantastic silhouette.
Though the trip ended before I was ready, I had many great things to look forward to upon my return, so I said adieu with grace and optimism for my next adventure.
