These two in Lima, Peru


Children:
Mexico

Ecuador

Guatemala (My prize shot -- hopefully to paint one day.)

Nicaragua

Colorful:

Pottery on sale in Acapulco


On board the Rotterdam
(My shaky hand blurred this, but I still like it).


Nicaragua

Chiapas, Mexico
Miscellaneous:



The 'eye' at Cabo San Lucas and a good looking yacht.


A shanty town in Lima, Peru

This I took as a possible picture to paint.



Miguel's photographer's eye.  He liked the one that was determined to be different.

Oh these are just stunning, breathtaking and wonderful.

I can't decide which I like best, but the children are beautiful.

Thanks for taking us along.


BTW you boat is getting great reviews.

My goodness, Chris - your photos are fantastic! The little girl in your prize shot is adorable, and I can sure see you painting that pose one day.

Beautiful colours and such unusual subjects -- you are a master photographer!

I'm pleased you posted these.
I am reminded of our several trips to Mexico--there is that love of very saturated color.
I should think you have seen so many sights that it will take a while to "process" the events of your trip.

You have captured some stunning and interesting pictures. So many great images, what a glorious trip.
I was intrigued by the hoardings in Lima where behind them is an obvious shanty town, but the posters show rather prosperous looking well groomed people aspiring for the particular products being advertised.

Terrific shots Chris. I love the children and their sparkly eyes. The colors are scrumptious and that last one really catches my eye too. What a fantastic trip you had.

Oh, Chris, what breathtaking pictures. It would be hard to choose a favourite...they all give such a colourful and textural overview of the things you encountered on your travels. Thank you so much for sharing them. x
