The Set Up
I’ve mentioned to a couple of people already how I was struck by how much there was to do and see in Belem, Brazil. One of those great things to do was a visit to the local botanical gardens. The gardens were a protected piece of natural landscape, and were home to a number of local animals both free and in rehabilitation. I stumbled upon an enclosure that was filled with turtles as well as a couple of large caymans. I could help but laugh when I looked over at the scene to notice that there was a turtle riding the back of the cayman while the cayman had his arm around the shoulders of another turtle. You could fill this scene with a captions all day and it would never get old. I am not a fan of taking pictures at zoos, but how could you not take a picture of this?
Quite honestly, there was nothing done technically to make this picture, so the lesson is to take your camera with you everywhere. Even if you don’t expect a great moment or photo to happen, it could. I take my camera with me everywhere, even to the store to buy groceries.
What did I miss?
My last article was a help article for those who travel by bus in somewhat dangerous locations. Check out my tips for protecting yourself in the case of a bus hijacking.
After my series of electronics issues I am almost completely back to fully functional. I just need to complete the repairs to my camera and I am ready to go again. Tomorrow I will have a new article for you from Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.
