In the valley of central Chile there is a little locality called San Esteban. This town keeps a great treasure that no many people knows. Petroglyphs from the Aconcagua Salmón Culture.

Petroglyphs are an antique style of rupestrian art that consist on drawing the rock by hits and scrapes with special tools. This culture made anthropomorfic and phytomorfic forms and they are all over the pre-cordillera and Andes Cordillera.

This is a great way to know the roots of civilization and have a great time at the same time.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
