It was only a few weeks ago that I was sitting on the porch in Guatemala, shivering, wishing that I had brought some long pants and a jacket. Oh well, I’ll know better next time. However, I was able to get a blanket and warm up a bit and, as an added bonus, was able to keep the mosquitoes off of me! In the mornings, during my walks, the temperatures were in the upper 50s, quite nice for walking. Well…

I’m on an old version of the iPhone … well, old version as far as technology is concerned, iPhone 6. I know! Prehistoric. During my time in Guatemala, I took about 1/4 of the pictures with the iPhone. As I look through them, and others that I’ve taken with that phone, I’m impressed. They seem to be very sharp, have good color, and all that I can ask for. The featured image, a picture of the falls in Falls Park…

These piles of mulch were formerly a wall of trees that lined S. Tryon St. I passed them every day. Occasionally, I saw a hawk alight on the telephone lines near the street or saw several deer as they bounded through the brush. One day, I noticed a group of surveyors with their tools, marking here and there, taking measurements, a sure sign of changes that were about to happen. I’ve seen it several times before!

I’m still going through the photos that I took in Guatemala, some 2 weeks after my return, and I’ve found exactly 3 that I may want to print. The rest, good…

Well, not really, but pretty darn close. Both taken with the same camera, but on different days, different times. One taken at 6:30 AM, the other at 7:00. One at 35 mm, the other at 24 mm. Kind of outlines the importance, for me, to visit the same place multiple times. You never know when the light will be your favor!

On the first full day that we were in Guatemala, a Sunday, Kayla and I were sitting on the upper porch, or veranda. I was enjoying the view. From my vantage point, all that I could see were tropical plants, including a couple of lime trees in the courtyard, a papaya tree, corn, and a pomegranate tree … all right there from my little bench. To the back of the bench was a wall. If you walked a few feet…
