Splash of Color

NorthLaDalia

I caught a splash of color between a group of buildings, following the highway North of La Dalia. We parked the truck at road’s edge. With the morning’s mist upon the Peñas Blancas in the background. A splash of yellow in the foreground, I captured the above composition.

 

Papayas Flower

I was travelling North of Jinotega up in the mountains last week. We stopped at a coffee Finca. I was strolling along a path with camera gear. I spotted a small papayas growing by a house.

All the elements were here for a great composition. The flowers, immature fruit. Beautiful lighting.  The result was the above composition

So until next time, happy trails

Children On The Corner

Interesting story here. The kids are gathered at a street corner. The youngest group are gathered by the door talking among themselves. That is until they noticed me. Then I got the beautiful smiles. In the middle are three older girls having a discussion. Two boys sitting in the lower right of photo studying the chess game for the next move.

 

Walking In Jinotega

Walking around the street corner, this fella jumped up and asked if I would take his photo. Sure I told him. He then sat back down in doorway. I photo graphed him. Showed him the photo. He looked, smiled and sat back down in doorway. I shook hands and moved on.

Strolling along the street I noticed an older lady sitting on a step. It was late evening. Thus she was relaxing after a day of labor. With her permission I captured her image

ON Duty

Jinotaga_0495

 

I was walking in a new neighborhood in Jinotega, that I had not been before. The lighting was good during a late afternoon. Rain was threatening. A rather large dog appeared on my left across the street.

The dog appeared quite suddenly, poking its head through a narrow opening in the metal door. There was a lot of vertical lines in the scene. Therefore I created a vertical composition.
