Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 0: Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I arrived in Buenos Aires Argentina this morning. The overnight flight from Miami was quiet, and I was able to sleep. It took about 2 hours to get the $140 tourist visa (good for 10 years), go though immigration, pick up my baggage, go through customs (luggage and carry on luggage all x-rayed), find my ride, and get to the Melia Hotel in downtown Buenos Aires. I spent a few hours walking around taking some snapshots with my Leica V-Lux20 camera. It is very hot in Buenos Aires (~95 °F). The final image is a macro shot of a spider I found on my shirt when I got back to my hotel room.
Gone to See Florida –2010 Road Trip. Day 2: St. Petersburg Pier at Sunset.
It is much warmer in St. Petersburg. I took this image of the Pier from my balcony at the Vinoy Hotel. The lightweight Leica V-Lux 20 camera is a great travel camera, and I am looking forward to having it in my pocket while in Patagonia.
