I’m back from my latest adventure across Mexico, Guatemala & Belize. I made this quick-paced short film to give you an idea of everything I saw, experienced & enjoyed. There were pyramids, hiking, jungle walks, cave canoeing, cave diving, swimming, snorkelling with sting rays and sharks, mosquito bites, and lots and lots of adventure! I think this short 3 minute piece gives you a good idea of what I saw, felt, smelled, touched and heard. Also, I edited it so that most shots are only a second long (we all have short attention spans, don’t we) so it moves quickly and at a fun pace! Please watch and let me know what you think!
I took some great photos as well, most of which you can see here on my Instagram, but here’s a short selection!https://www.instagram.com/p/-XasrZPVFr https://www.instagram.com/p/-KS-9WvVBH https://www.instagram.com/p/-ZvKHJPVCP https://www.instagram.com/p/-2bGhMvVN- https://www.instagram.com/p/-2bg2zPVOq https://www.instagram.com/p/-beIsYPVOH https://www.instagram.com/p/-pOkOdPVEN https://www.instagram.com/p/-r8tYcvVDh https://www.instagram.com/p/-pMbxWPVPm
But my favourite photo isn’t digital or staged or even featuring me. I brought a waterproof disposable camera with me because I knew I would be exploring some cenotes whilst I was away. I took this pic with the disposable camera and I just developed it yesterday. I have no idea how a disposable camera was able to capture such a great composition and a scene loaded with so much meaning, but there you go. Digital isn’t always better.
I’ve had some amazing adventures in my short life…. Peru… Thailand & Cambodia …. India… Vancouver & Whistler … London…. NYC…. Montreal… and so much Europe over and over….and so many more! I hope to make more films about my adventures, and I hope the adventures never run low.
I already have some new adventures planned for the new year, more on that for another post. Also, I have more publications forthcoming in a few literary magazines and cultural journals. So stay tuned, there’s always something in the works with this-here pipsqueak.
