Pueblo Viejo and Cahuachi Pyramids
Nov 23, 2008

17kms North of Nasca, Cahuachi is an archeological site shaped by a series of pyramids built with walls of adobe, leaving spaces opened like squares that separate them. It was a ceremonial center for the early phase of the Nasca culture.

A disheartening thing is walking around the grave site and finding the desecration of the area by tomb raiders. All over the site you can see pieces of cloth, shards and bones lying around the desert. Hopefully something is being done to protect the site from grave looters.

Nasca Lines
Nov 23, 2008

I'm fascinated with the past, one can never look into the future without knowing what was there before us.

6hrs Away from Lima, lies in the Nasca Desert a series of geoglyphs that can only be seen from the air. Why there were made is still a mystery, several theories have been presented but none seems to satisfy the real purpose for this marvelous 'works of art'.

Back at The Homestead
Jun 13, 2008

Back in Maine to say goodbye to a great friend and have fun remembering him.

A couple other things I learned in Maine:

* I'm too sweet, Mosquitoes have a sweet tooth for me
* Suckers are most vicious, when raining
* I never learn

Walking Through The Met
May 24, 2008

Fiiiiinally my camera is back... for the one's that knew it, I messed up my camera and was away for repair ... now is back 'my preeeeecious'.

Back to business, we got together in NYC with some long time friends and headed for the Met... while waiting for them played around with some long exposures and at the Met I went crazy with the Egyptian collection.

After that, well it was just fooling around ... for a change ;-)

I'm back !!!

NOTE: Put on the slideshow to appreciate the Long exposure shots better.
