Picture Perfect

Monday, March 2, 2009

It would be a challenge not to take a good picture here in Belize no matter what your skill level - the island of Ambergris Caye and the country of Belize are very colorful and image rich. Belize Please came from wanting to see more of the color and richness - see it through different peoples vision - snapshots of a place we all love.

In addition to finding my way in developing technical abilities - living on a tropical island and taking so many pictures for my blog has given me the opportunity to learn more about who I am and what I like through the images I capture. It has also given me a deeper sense of appreciation of my surroundings - I can't tell you how many times missed a shot and just enjoyed the moment knowing that I will not be short on opportunities to capture a different moment in time that is just as special in it's own way.

While some people are conservative picture takers - many of us myself included use our digital camera freedom to the fullest - snap way to many pics happily editing them later feeling like rock hounds searching for precious gems.

I am still going through older posts looking for more gems. While you wait please feel free to enjoy pictures from Cindy's birthday party.

So far There are 6 entries for Belize Please photo contest. Correction make that 12 entries now - boy do the my secret judges have their work cut out for them. I definitly earned a nice break right now going to go for a bike ride and visit Zac at his new diggs.

This afternoon Zac and I proved the well known theory that the laws of time and space travel are different here - a person traveling on Belize time can reach a destination long before the text message that was beamed through space stating that they are on their way arrives.

Maurice and Rico send a shout out to Cindy the Conqueror - your visit was exemplary.

Please remember when entering Belize Please to state which category to place your submissions and name(s) for photo credits - titles are optional. Photo contest categories are... people - animals - nature - creative and action. I have gone through my photos and selected one to represent each category.

People - Walter one my most photographed

Animals - Baby Jaguar at the Belize zoo

Nature - Taken in memory of my friend Roy who loved sunsets

Creative - thought waves - this tacoboy's pic

Action - pointing at people falling from the sky
