Morrocoy National Park

2011-05-10 5

I was recently checking my first lomographs and I found a series of photographs I shot in Venezuela, my homeland. It’s a paradise on Earth!

You may have heard that the most beautiful women in the world live in Venezuela, and that it has an endless natural beauty: well, I can confirm that, everything is true and this location is an example of this.

One of my favourite places in Venezuela, where it’s always summer, is Morrocoy National Park. This park is located approximately four hours from Caracas, the capital city of Venezuela, and it’s a group of islets or “cayos” with white sand, surrounded by calm, crystal water, with an indescribable blue color that will shock you by its beauty and that will make you feel right in heaven.

You can get to the beaches by taking one of the many boats located mainland, they are called “peñeros”, or little wooden boats made by local fishermen. Regarding accommodations, you can stay in tents on the islands, but you need to have a permission for that. There are many hotels and inns (local family houses) in the coast where you can stay, but it’s advisable to choose a good place via internet before going there.

The net has a lot of information about this wonderful place, and these are my pictures, I hope you like them! Back then I couldn’t handle my Diana very well, in fact, it’s still a bit difficult for me! ;)

I almost forgot to give you a tip: if you ever go to any beach in Venezuela, try Whiskey with Coconut water! ;)

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
