Being the last one leaving Nelly’s Bar after a day of 3 ball, I said smile Nelly and caught this keeper. The perfect capture of her never ending battle of keeping Lil Willy out of trouble. As it turns out this would be the first printed canvas by Tommy Traveler Photography and was gifted to hang in her bar for all to enjoy. You never know what you may capture so shoot away. More is always better!
Who knew that it would be 6 months before I saw my little terror buddy William… I missed him bunches and he flashed me this smile. Like he never missed me at all ! You never know what you may capture so shoot away. More is always better!
Such a incredible day watching my daughter marry the love of her life. You can see the pride in my face when I first saw her walk out looking so beautiful. My baby girl was all grown up! You never know what you may capture so shoot away. More is always better!
Well little did I know when ten of us were climbing into the back of this tiny truck I’d capture one of my favorite shots without even knowing it! We loaded up for the 90 minute trip through winding bumpy overgrown jungle mountain roads for Semuc Champey National Park. A day of mountain climbing and swimming in the iconic volcanic limestone pools, deep in the Guatemalan jungle. Hanging on for dear life, bouncing all over the place, my camera above my head, the shutter in burst mode I was capturing away. Out of 200 plus shots that I knew nothing of what I was getting. I managed to capture a few awesome keepers including this smokey sunset over the burnt out jungle landscape. You never know what you may capture so shoot away. More is always better!
Did I know when we started hiking into the Guatemalan jungle, I would come across this Mother’s refreshment table and her 3 kids, no. It’s deep in the jungle, about an hour or so from the road where we started, about half way up a mountain. These kids were so cute and wondered if they sit here all day every day with nothing to do with big smiles on their faces. It’s hot, close to 100 degrees, the humidity is thick and the air is full with bugs. Then I notice them, those shoes, shiny black shoes he was wearing as his brother and sister were in bare feet. I could tell he was proud of them with my attempt at some Spanish conversation. He was definitely proud of them. I gave them some quetzal coins in my pocket, purchased some water from Momma and we were on our way. A great moment for the memory bank. You never know what you may capture so shoot away. More is always better!
I remember snapping this photo as I sat on the rocks overlooking Corozal Bay in Belize, December 2012. Five days into which turned out to be a 7 month backpacking adventure of Central America that I will never forget. Enjoying the incredible view but wondering what does the future hold for me? Little did I know that 9 yrs later this photo would be turned in to art. You never know what you may capture so shoot away. More is always better!
