Bye bye 2010!

Posted by Susanna On December - 31 - 2010

Ohhhh, how fast this year 2010 went by… It just had started. And now it is already over. Sometimes I really have the feeling that it all passes by faster with age… I had a great year with very happy and very sad moments. I hope the best for the upcoming year 2011 for all my friends and I! What I did today? I went for a walk with Todd at Casco Viejo and later for a photo excursion in the Panama Zoo to take pictures of the harpy eagle which is the biggest eagle in the world. When we saw the eagle it was far away and secretly I wished somebody to come out and feed it so it would come closer… And guess what? Somebody did! So I was able to do the following photos. In addition I’ve seen the jaguar and the tapir. Animals I wanted to spot in the wild in the amazon but were not able too… In the evening I went with friends I had met in the hostel to dinner at the Casablanca restaurant as a warm up for the long new years night.

Photo shot Guayaquil

Posted by Susanna On November - 22 - 2010

Since I had much time in Guayaquil staying in the house of my friends who mostly were models the idea came up to do another nice photo shot. I got only my cameras and no external lights or much more equipment. But there was this great location the abandoned house. This time we sneaked in and were as quiet as possible since we didn’t wanted to wake up the dog nor meet the man with the machete again… This shooting was easier than the first one since I already knew the location and had a few ideas what I wanted my models to do. We had no big variaty of clothes and such but see yourself… The photos became quite nice. The camera did a great job simply using the little light we had. I like to express the contrasts between light/shadow, black/white and structures and space in my photos.

Models: Angel Passini, Oswaldo Vargas, Maria Belen Intriago

Coron Island

Posted by admin On October - 11 - 2009

For me the most amazing place in the Philippines are the Palawan Islands. I stayed in Coron town and the people are simply lovely. The town is small and quite and I picked a typical Filipino house on stilts to stay – the Crystal Lodge. You really sleep in one of the houses over the water what has it typical charm… I loved it.
The family was great and one day I bought a tuna to do Sashimi and I had so much that I could share. The family invited me and gave me some mangrove crab instead and we laughed a lot… Will always remember that night.
Another day I shared a boat cruise with two french travelers I met. The cruise was around Coron Island and to the Kayangan Lake. we had several stops and in between it even started raining. Since I was already spoiled with Palau no much could impress me anymore in the Philippines. Then I saw the view of the top of the hill on the hike to Kayangan Lake and I have to admit  – it is amazing. This was worth climbing up. It put me a little off that even after paying the boat trip you had to pay for each spot they brought you and you get off the boat extra. Always keep that in mind. The lake was the most expensive place but the most worth it as well. Some of the spots are just nothing special. Just other beaches. I prefer then rather to stay longer at one beach than cruising to several ones and having not enough time to enjoy.

Spadina and Casa Loma

Posted by admin On August - 7 - 2008

Toronto has few old houses. Two of them I visited today. Both were used as museums and are decorated with mostly original furniture. One is Spadina, the older one. Spadina is native american for mountain. Its situated on a mountain, or better hill. The other is the famous Casa Loma. This house is build like a medieval castle because that was one dream of his previous owner Sir Henry Mill Pellat.

Pupuka Beach and Cathedral Cove

Posted by admin On March - 5 - 2006

Today we needed a bit relaxation. So we decide to stay for a while at the wonderful Pupuka Beach near Hahei. It’s one of the nicest places I ever visited. The water is crystal clear and glistens in the sun. It’s a touch of South Sea… First time I feel like in real holiday mode.
For the touristy part we decided to discover Cathedral Cove. It seems to be around this area but in fact you walk a long way about 30min to this special place. But look at the pictures… It definitely paid off!
This night we slept in Roturua at the “Funky green voyager” a very nice place to stay with friendly people. That’s why we decide to stay for two days. On the way to the backpacker I saw two funny buildings looking like a sheep and a dog.
