The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

Bea Shots

That's "Bea" shots not "B" shots...... Beatriz Ruiz from Teotitlan del Valle.
Remember this shot from a few days ago?  Me showing Bea how to work the camera.

Well, here are some of her shots.
Her cousin, Angelica.  Yes, I have photographed her several times, as well.

Maybe a friend,

Maybe a relative.

Of course, there's Dad, Antonio.

My plan is to give her the camera and encourage her and her friends to take pictures.  I know they can see and get places I never could.  It should be fun and who knows......

So kind of you to give Bea a camera. She will do so much with it. A kind and compassionate thing to do, I admire you for your generosity to a little girl.
