Florida birds

While on vacation in Florida, I enjoyed walking in marshes, along the beaches, and in preserves to capture images of various wildlife. The most prominent were the birds, always alert to securing the next meal.

Here are some.

Chile and Argentina Montages

While traveling with Grand Circle Tours in Chile and Argentina this winter to escape the cold North and to enjoy the South American culture, I took over 1000 digital pictures.  Now it is time to do something with those images and I just finished creating some montages from them.  They include two from Valparaiso, which is a port city where 17 hills tower over the basin city.  They mentioned that it was their San Francisco. The highlight of the trip for me was the visit to the famous poet Pedro Neruda's home on the hill and to see how he was inspired by the incredible views of the city and harbor.

In Buenos Aires, we visited the cemetery that contained Iva Peron's mausoleum.  At night, we enjoyed dinner and the Tango, which was an incredible display of talent.

Let me know what you think of these montages.
