I’m back from an extraordinary holiday voyage around the Galapagos archipelago. My traveling companion on the journey was none other than Charles Darwin, who spoke to me from a shelf at Archie McPhee, expressing a keen desire to make a return trip to the islands he visited 175 years ago, to “see how things have evolved.”
We had many adventures together. During the rest of this month, I’ll be posting a new photo every day from our visit to the Enchanted Isles that rocked the world.
I’m also cutting a short film shot during the trip on my Canon 60D and lovely little Canon S95 with Ikelite underwater housing, which I’ll post later this month. Enjoy.
Looks pretty awesome. I love traveling, so I have to admit I’m jealous! Can’t wait to see what you shot.
Hi Daniel. If you like travel to epic places that will blow your mind, I highly recommend the Galapagos. It’s like you’ve time-traveled back to the fabled garden of Eden – where virtually all of the animals are fearless of man – only it’s no garden. It’s a volcanic desert with virtually no fresh water. It’s a world of it’s own, distantly related to ours, and so well preserved that it’s like visiting a theme park. Only, it’s real.
That’s freaking awesome. I can’t believe you were able to get all those creatures to pose for you. Did you bribe them with a doggy biscuit? I especially love the one with the baby sea lion. I’m originally from San Diego, and there were a few times that a herd (i’m sure that’s the wrong word) of sea lions just showed up and laid on the beach for a few days. It was an interesting phenomenon. I’d love to see a baby one up close.
