Usually I take pictures of people taking pictures while traveling – after all, that seems to be when most people take out their cameras, from cellphones to sophisticated SLRs.
I got a new camera and a new haircut right before our Baltic cruise.
In March-April, 2017, we went on a Panama Canal cruise.
In Todos Santos, Mexico (near Cabo San Lucas), we went to a cultural center, which had interesting murals as well as eclectic artifacts.
Last summer, with our trip to Tanzania several months away, I bought another camera. I was very dissatisfied with the Kodak, which would sometimes overexpose or blur a subject for no reason. So I bought a used Sony SLR with two lenses, including a 300mm telephoto lens, a camera case and other accessories. I didn’t think the Kodak would be reliable enough for photographing wildlife and I was right – the Sony worked much better!
A safari in Tanzania is, of course, a place to take lots of photos, from the most amateur cellphone photo to close-up shots of far-off animals with 600 mm telephoto lenses, and everything in between!
This song, Desafinado (Out of Tune), sung in Portuguese, is a bossa nova, and one of the lines says: Fotografei você na minha Rolleiflex (I photographed you with my Rolleiflex).
