Isolation Antidotes (2)

Here’s my second post from my archival delving during this time of lonely trial. I hasten to assure you that I’m not planning to strive to post anything like every day, but I do admit that I’m having great fun revisiting old favorite places and reliving my memories. I made this photo on a very hot 4th of June, 2004, along the bank of the Río Anisacate, which flows through the Valle de Calamuchita in the province of Alta Grazia, Argentina. At that time I was still using my first digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix 4500, and I used an aperture of 8.8 and a shutter speed of 1/160. There was enough bright light that I could use an ISO of only 100. I didn’t have time to set up my tripod, but I clearly remember lying on my stomach to get this angle with the foreground flowers well within my frame.

    You too are lying on your stomach to take photos with an interesting perspective. That is quite remarkable and I don’t feel so silly any more taking photos in this embarrassing position. Haha!

    The persistence of beauty and hope.

  3. Looking back to look forward in a way. Those are lovely flowers and you made great use of them as foreground subjects for this near far composition.

    I remember that, when I asked them if they wanted to be in the picture, they all nodded their heads without hesitation. What else could I do?

  5. It’s good to hear about someone else lying on the ground for the sake of a picture.

      I can remember a few times when I’ve gone to extreme contortions. In my traditional SLR years, I was absolutely elated when I discovered the magic of a right-angle finder. My first digital camera (a Nikon Coolpix 4500) was articulated, to my delight. Now, at last, my D-7500 has an articulated viewing screen. What a treat!

    Argentina! Cool! And the memory you describe is wonderful.
