    Right up until before the rain hit. After that, the camera was stowed away safely.

    It's thanks to you my friend, and the kind hearts of those that helped you. I did as the one donor suggested. I have a better neck strap now. No more holding without a tether

    Stunning Pictures.. The new camera has paid for itself already.. The pictures make it seem as if I'm right there with you as I sit here in my comfortable dining room sipping coffee.. I'd be scared out of my mind running some of those roads or trails.. Keep em coming Dan..

    I somehow missed your post Jim.
    Tomorrow looks like the window I needed to do the tour. Right now it’s pouring with thunder and lightning. So I took your advice without even being aware of it! I’m staying an extra night here in Puno. On the shores of mighty Titicaca, birthplace of the Inca.
    I booked online. $20 for the full day tour. Lunch included. That’s cheaper than ANY of the storefronts and packages I saw offered on the street.
    Trust you two are well and rockin along

    Really happy for you Dan! Admire your grit to continue your dream after your health scare in Mexico. Also I get to re-live my ride through some of the familiar places. Keep it going!!!

    Yeah. Nikon sensors (to me) display finished images where the colors and contrast pop and look natural. All I’m trying to do is create compositions that recreate what captures my attention to begin with. The rare times you see a subject centered in my mind is when the subject IS the only focus. Paintings, sculptures, statues and sometimes churches and/or buildings. Sometimes though the building is so interesting because of it’s surroundings or neighboring structures.

    It made me smile to know you’re still following. And it’s awesome that I can trigger a memory here and there. Hopefully all good ones.
