Guatemala: First Frames.

We touched down in Guatemala City yesterday afternoon, the hectic schedule of the past few weeks behind us. Antigua, a small colonial town, would be our gateway to greater adventure. We checked into a small room with open courtyards and headed out into the rain to get our feet on the ground and breath in the thick air of Central America, washing our long travels away with an ice cold Moza…..this trip has been a long time coming!

I am not here on assignment, I am not pursuing a project of any significance, but rather exploring a country with open eyes. Rachel and I will share our vows here on the edge of Lake Atitlan, in the company of my very close friend and companion Patrick Dobbins, and his beautiful wife Amalia!

Together we will soak up the culture of this wonderful country in the next few weeks!

I will not post often, but I will be shooting. Internet will be scarce, and I will not go to any great measures to seek it out. Our time here will be memorable-a once in a lifetime trip for so many reasons…and one that I am already easily sliding into…with this post I am setting out to find homemade tortillas and refried beans, a tall glass of juice and peace of mind.

Caught on Film….an image taken by Patrick as we sipped on Guatemalan coffee this afternoon. Patrick’s choice of camera for this adventure – Panasonic GF1 with the compact 20mm prime lens, which makes for an excellent travel camera.

….Stay tuned.
