Hagley, United Kingdom
Hagley, United Kingdom The second task of the South American sojourn was to Find a Decent Profile Pic, and after many many snaps, I finally found one that I was happy with. As it happened, it wasn’t the amazing landscape: rainforests, rivers, mountains, glaciers or caves that hit me most, but the people I met. Staying with Felix and his family was an very humbling experience, and they were just one of the few very kind and interesting groups of people that I met along the journey. That I managed to get a photo without me smiling garishly was also a bonus… The other photos are a collection of the other potential ones that could’ve taken its place, along with some Outtakes from along the way. The loss of camera in 7.1 prevents me uploading a richer collection of me sneezing, yawning, scratching my head and generally looking unimpressed in the foreground of what would have been something interesting I am sure. It shouldn’t be too much of a stretch to imagine me photobombing in front of a stunning landscape though I’m sure…
And this therefore concludes the “Finding Myself. And a Decent Profile Pic” blog.
Thank you for your contact and comments whilst I’ve been away.
