found this old photo while cleaning up some files today. it was film, taken years ago in center city,
i haven't seen steve for a long time, maybe since i snapped this photo.
my color and my exposures were all off but it was good to see his face today.
i'm not sure what his mental disability was but he was always fun to have at the bar.
a character to say the very least.
hope you are well, old friend.

these are pictures from the tent camp i stayed at on the osa peninsula in costa rica.
many of my rain forest pictures come from my excursion to corcavado, the largest
national jungle preserve in the nation (which i traveled to while staying at this camp.
i traveled here and to corcavado by boat and with each stop got out knee deep in water.
a far cry from a luxury hotel- i still had a sound bed, electricity and wifi.
it was like nothing i had ever experienced & it took a few moments for me to adjust my proverbial sails.
mainly, my fear came from walking in the dark at night with a flashlight that created alot of shadows. i also have a great fear of rodents (which i didn't see) however, i was fortunate enough to wake up to monkeys playing on the top of my tent.
it's remarkable what you can experience when you let go of the reigns.
i let my friend plan this trip without even looking into the details.
otherwise i may have never stepped foot on this campsite.
i really didn't get the chance, or take the time to do any self portrait stuff on my trip to costa rica or cuba. here is one shot i took while i had a few moments alone. i couldn't get a clear shot but, this about sums it up- alot of running around on a long trip and much about it is blurry until i sit back and reflect through memory and photos... and i always try to get a shot of me representing my phils when i'm in another country.
