we have made our way through the yucatan peninsula, belize, and am now in guatemala. it has been quite an adventure and we’re learning loads from each other. the land we have seen and the people we have met have been remarkable. we’ve been to a couple of world heritage sites and have relaxed in some crystal clear waters. we went scuba diving in the world’s second largest reef yesterday in belize. all this and all i have now is two plastic point and shoot film cameras, one for color, the other b/w. i had to return the d3 to the workshops so i had to make due w/ something else. so i am now back to shooting film and seeing where these images and way of shooting takes me. i have no clear idea of where i’ll go as i currently have no parameters. but i’m hoping to narrow it down as i go, as per usual.

unfortunately, we had to skip thanksgiving in the states. i always get sad for missing thanksgiving due to the fact that it is my favorite holiday. i had to settle for fried chicken w/ fries while lauren had some belizian fried fish.

we have three weeks to go and will make it back to california before christmas. that should give me a short enough fix to fill my traveling addiction for a bit. but u never know!
