I’m sorry that this post is not about food photography. I just got back from vacation in Costa Rica and had to share some of my photos with you. My wife and I had an absolutely great time and are already planning to return. We were on a tour with Collette and our guide, food and accommodations all beat our expectations.
I couldn’t believe the number and variety of beautiful birds. I spent most of the time chasing them and thoroughly enjoyed it. How could you not love sloths and monkeys. We saw three types of monkeys; white face, howler and squirrel. Unfortunately, the squirrel monkeys were far away and I was on a moving boat so I didn’t capture them.
When we were in the jungle (northern Caribbean coast) I went for a walk in the mud (lots of mud) to try and see animals. There were none to be seen. When I got back to my room and sitting on the porch with my camera still in hand, a white face monkey walked right passed us. He was actually too close to capture on my camera which had a 150-600mm zoom on so, I followed it in hope of getting a shot. The monkey headed straight for the back of the kitchen where he saw a papaya, grabbed it and ran. We were all hysterical laughing. The monkey stopped to take a taste of his booty and I got the shot.
As usual, I made a vacation photo book with Adoramapix.com and wanted to share it with you. http://www.adorapro.com/JerryDeutsch/book/costa-rica/r9nzrqtgq5
OK…I can’t take the pressure. I have to put in one food photo. We had a cooking demo at our resort and here is one of the shots. It was at night and all I had was the on camera flash…sorry for the lack of creativity.
