Ever since I left my native country of Panama when I was 18 years old, I’ve always tried to visit at least once a year. Sometimes my travel schedule has gotten to be so crazy that I’ve had to skip a visit here and there. The result of those missing visits becomes painfully obvious to me when I find myself having a hard time recognizing the ever- evolving landscape of modern Panama. This usually happens when driving around with friends or relatives, I happen not to pay attention for a minute or two to and by the time I look around again I find myself a stranger in my own land.
Anyway, I’m heading back home this week to embark on a photographic project of my own design and for some R&R. I can’t quite give out the details now. But suffice it to say, it involves beautiful people, exotic locations and lights. More information to come in an upcoming blog post and of course it’ll be accompanied by the resulting photos.
During this visit, I’ll also be giving a million eyez sponsored slide show presentation on Street Photography to Club Fotografico de Panama. So in honor of this presentation I wanted to share a couple of my images of Panama. The last one is so we don’t forget that Panama’s appeal is not only its modern skyline but also its nature and people. Ciao, ciao.
