Well, I am back, safe and well from Northern Argentina. What an incredible country! What an incredible trip! What fabulous photographic opportunities this country offers! Each day afforded a level of diversity in images I have never before experienced in any other country in the world, and I have seen my share. To photograph festivals and cultural events, portraits, landscapes, wildlife and social documentary images in the space of a day was not unusual, and the diversity of each of these categories changed daily with each new location, each new adventure.
It even changed my own appearance! (Photo courtesy: Bob 'El Presidente' Cook.)
My Nikon D200 performed brilliantly, producing 10 megapixel images that I can use for almost any purpose. I also used a Ricoh GR Digital for some of the candid 'street' images. Lenses ranged from my Tamron 11 -18 through to my 300mm AF-ID Nikkor. My favourites were the new Tamron 17-50 f2.8, my AF NIkkor 80-200 f2.8 and my 85mm f1.8, the lens I live in.
