    Maracas in a San Salvador market, El Salvador.  'El Salvador' means 'the savior.'  So I thought it appropriate to title this as 'The Holy Savior's Maracas.'  Image taken while cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • San Salvador Chef

    $822.00$2,832.00
    I don't remember the name of the restaurant in San Salvador (El Salvador) where I met this chef, but I had to take a shot of him and his chef's hat.  As you can see, his chef's hat takes half the vertical space of the frame.  Found this wonderful background of foliage in the back parking lot.  Image taken while cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.

    The San Blas Archipelago, off the northeastern coast of Panama, is home to the Kuna Yala—an indigenous people that inhabit its 365 coastal islands.  We sailed the archipelago for a month.  One day we found this little round little button of an island with white sand, one palm tree, and a grounded freighter in the background.  So we decided to do a 'shipwrecked' triptych.  Bekki donned a dress.  I rowed her to the island in our dinghy, and then rowed away to photograph.  That's trust!  Images made while we were cruising the San Blas in our sailboat 2001.

  • Wrought Iron Twilight

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Walking Panama City (Panama) one evening as the sun set, I came across this abandoned building just at golden hour, as the sun slipped below the horizon.  The combination of wrought iron railings and teal-colored tile arches formed an unusual color palette on the facade, with the decaying building behind it.  Shot while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • This is one of my favorite photos from my 3-years of cruising the Pacific on our Hallberg-Rassy 42, 'Andante.'  We were sailing in flat seas in the Gulf of Chiriqui as we made our way toward the Panama Canal.  Suddenly, wind and seas perked up with no clouds anywhere.  My friend and accomplished sailor, Chris Brown, on a close reach as the sun set on the horizon.  Transparency taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • Curious Canoe Friends

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Bahia Honda, Panama, became one of the most memorable anchorages of our Pacific cruise.  The howler monkeys on shore sounded like gorillas.  No photos of the gorillas, but these inquisitive boys paddled up for a look.  Bekki discovered from the boys that a small store was located at a nearby village—where she bought a cake mix for my 48th birthday.  Transparency taken with a Leicaflex while cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • An additional perspective on Temple IV (Temple of the Double Headed Serpent) in the background, with Temple 33 in the foreground.  Only the base of Temple 33 now remains.  I sat at my photo vantage point for 15-minutes, listening to the jungle and birds.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.

    $822.00$2,832.00

  • I love this shot of Tikal's Temple IV (Temple of the Double Headed Serpent) as it looks across the jungle on a level plane to the top of the structure, 212 feet from its base.  If you squint, you can almost imagine the torchlight ceremony in the doorway.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.

    $822.00$2,832.00
    More wonderful geometric patterns and earthen colors in these Guatemalan embroidered ... belts?  I'm not sure exactly what these would be used for.  Perhaps if the cord is worn out on the bell you ring the butler with.  This image works alone, or as a diptych with image #1.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • Guatemalan belts (1/2)

  • Predictable title, but it's descriptive of the subject. This stack of plastic baskets in a Chichicastenango (Guatemala) market was piled indiscriminately in a jumbled mess. Not sure how you would find the just the right basket for you, but it was a fun shot.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • Braided Hues

    $822.00$2,832.00

  • Chichicastenango Maize

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Like all third-world countries, vendors find any available space to sell their wares.  This woman spread her corn on a Chichicastenango street.  While not as colorful as most of my other images, the white corn spread out on the street, and her sweet smile, compelled me to take the shot.  Transparency taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • Mayan Shaman (1/2)

    $822.00$2,832.00
    While exploring Chicicastenango someone in the village informed us of a shaman couple that were performing a Mayan ceremony up on the hill.  Following a nearby trail, we found this husband and wife, and they allowed me to photograph them.  Husband and wife are a diptych.  Transparency taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
