So, it’s been a while since I posted and I’ve got the audacity to use the hash tag #photographyblogger on my Instagram posts so I thought I’d better pop back to where it all started… At the moment I’m on holiday with my family in Boa Vista and it’s amazing. A little on the overcast (high cloud, not that great lumpy stuff we get back in the UK) side but there have been some great opportunitys for landscape photography but I’ve decided to set myself a little challenge. So often on holidays like this I tend to rely on my preconceived opinions rather that actually seeing what’s there so, for the rest of this holiday I’m going to park my opinion firmly in the back seat and let the world decide what it wants to be and try to capture the best bits with my camera. So, People of Boa Vista #1 is John (I think that might be a non de plume)
A souvenir seller on the beach in front of the hotel. He lives in Sal Rei and walks along the beach every day to sell his wares.
I was at his pitch a few days ago when there wasn’t a soul about apart from the local stray dogs (who are very friendly and fit as butchers)
So, for the next week and a bit I’m going to try and find out more about the people who make this wonderful place tick. Wish me luck!
