South America Photography Blog

Lakes District of Chile

December 8th, 2010

This time last year i was in Southern Chilé for the wedding of a couple of good friends, one of whom is Chiléan, hence the location.  I had never been to Chilé before, so it was a new adventure for me,  I’ve seen plenty of images from there, so i had a bit of an idea, but they was nothing compared to the reality.

The Volcano visible from the town of Pucon in Chile, South America

The view down the street... any street... of Pucón.

What an amazingly beautiful place, totally different to anywhere i have been before.  The South of Chilé is all mountains forests, fast flowing crystal clear rivers… and volcanoes…

Awe inspiring!  Nothing quite like waking up in the morning and looking out the window  to find an enormous smoking volcano taking up most of the horizon, especially when the day before – the day of arrival – had been so overcast and rainy there was no horizon and the presence of the volcano was hidden. Something i never really got used to, i think the locals were wondering what i was staring at all the time. Read the rest of this entry »

Soccer Players on Santos Beach-Brasil

October 22nd, 2010

Back in 2003/2004 i spent a year travelling around Brasil, a country of amazing diversity.  Why i was there is another story for another day, but i took a vast number of images in that year (the majority of them on the Hasselblad XPan), most of which have never seen the light of day.  I put the first one up last week, and gradually i will be putting more and more of them here as i think the Blog is a great place to finally show them and eventually create a category on the website for that and other adventures.

Beach soccer on Santos Beach in Brasil

"Caralho!" - The goal keeper was heard to utter...

During my stay in Brasil i lived in a city called Santos for several months, which is on the coast of Sao Paulo state. Santos has the dubious honour of being the largest port in South America, with all the pleasures that brings… Santos also has a very long open beach, and on any given day there are always loads of Soccer games running, of all ages, from 3 or 4 year olds playing with 2 sticks for goals, to semi professional clubs having play offs.

The old Barman of Parati-Brasil

October 17th, 2010

I was looking through some  folders on my computer the other day (while i was supposed to be working) and i came across my images from Brasil that i shot several years ago and have never done anything with.  I have been promising friends over there that these would end up on the website, and so far there has always been too much to do to actually do anything about it.  Well, i’m an expert procrastinator, so while i was supposed to be doing other things i sat down and worked up this image a bit.

The first of many images from Brasil

The old Barman of Parati

I came across the old barman of Parati-Brasil, while walking through some magic coastal bush just out of a 15th century town of Parati (pronounced Para-chi).  The trail went out around some headlands covered in South American rainforest that ran right down to the waters edge, the coastline was craggy and beautiful with many inlets and deep, steep sided bays.

It wasn’t a particularly long or difficult hike, the path was pretty flat and the views were stunning, but it was certainly wilderness. Read the rest of this entry »
