Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Vacation 2016: Scenes from Ecuado & Chile
So while we were away I thought it a great idea to capture and share some of the images and experiences had on vacation in both Countries. The above was taken at the beach in Manta, Ecuador. Plenty of people were out to soak up the sun and play in the sand.to Manta is probably the best city visited in Ecuador during our stay. The energy is a mixed one with every day people enjoying the beach city environment. While there certainly is more to Manta than the beach. The beach here is probably the first reason to visit Manta.Green Coconuts for sale and consumption right on the beach where they chop it open and supply a straw. La Policia stroll the beach. Kids playing in the sand.Looking out to the beach from inside a restaurant while having a Pilsner Light is what it is right now.
Plenty of public displays of art can be found walking the streets of Manta. Even the trees become part of the mural scene above.These birds are all around the shore line and beach front. Flying high and swooping in and out down and around and all about making for awesome shots like the one pictured above. The sculpt work here is beyond impressive! Last time I was here they did Giant Hippos.
I took this as we approached the Beach. To me looked like a shot worthy of making a classic Black & White.I like this for the simple phrase think Big.Driving through the various towns from Manta through Porto Viejo yields some colorful scenes.Looks like it could be a portal in some version of Mortal Kombat.Yes they do go to church at night.
This is the Angel de Porto Viejo.
Check out this barren Ceiba tree. I shot this while in a moving vehicle so it wasn’t the easiest shot to capture.
Below are some shots from various parts of Chile.
The Chilean Flag All over the streets of Santiago and other cities I encountered pretty cool public art displays from murals to graffiti images.I was surprised to see so much graffiti and art work on the walls along the streets of Santiago. No doubt about it art, graffiti, self expression is universal.Here’s another cool public display of art I came across in Chile.As I kid I wished I could draw this well. The detail is sick!!!See what I mean they just keep on coming.Here’s another pretty cool looking P.A.D.What’s that in the distance? Can you see him?This P.A.D I shot in front of a subway station in the center of Santiago.This was also near to the other mural at the entrance to the subway.This lamp was shot inside of one of Santiago’s best restaurants Eladios.Tiramisu Pizzeria Chile is an absolute instant favorite of mine for their cocktails and pizza alone period end of story.My second cocktail was my favorite of the day. Tiramisu’s Raspberry Mojito aka The Framboise Mojito
And then there was the Pizza…Absolutely F’ N Bueno!!!
Notice anything striking in this photo? Tell me what you see in this photo and what you don’t see as opposed to NYC’s transit system. There are tons more shots I have from this awesome trip. I hope you enjoyed this little peak at the wonderful experience had in Latin America. Thank you to our hosts in both Ecuador & Chile.
