Thanks for the Luck, Red-Capped Cardinal! - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Earlier this year, I submitted, for the first time, to a photography contest dedicated to the revered 19th century photographer Julia Margaret Cameron.  When I came back from a trip, I was more than delighted (and honored) to see my name in more than one category of the winners' list.   

The image below is one of them.  If you remember, I've posted it before.  Clicking on the image will bring you to it.

To have a chance out of 4,580 images from 57 countries, I consider myself lucky.  As mom of nature and wildlife photographer Jason Tiesman tells him, "When you see a cardinal, good things are to come".  I do remember seeing such a birdie in la Amazonia last year.  I guess I owe her a debt of gratitude.  Muchas gracias, red-capped cardinal!

I Fell In Love with the Peruvian Amazonia Trees - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

As humid as it felt at the time, it was the (beginning of) dry season in the Peruvian Amazonia.  Contrary to my previous conception, many deciduous trees were bare with no leaves left.  Trying to look through the branches to the sky gives an other-worldly (my client Sylvia loves to use this word when describing my work.  Haha...) feeling.

You English (-speaking) people may think of the word silhouette (剪影)。  I, on the other hand, see paper-cut (剪纸) in this image.

What do you think? 

Am I a Wild-Life Photographer? - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I did not seek to become a wild-life photographer at the beginning of my career.  I knew I wouldn't have the patience, nor the tenacity.  However, life has an interesting way to teach one to never say never.*

My recent travels have brought me to places where I simply could not resist photographing.  I mean, without making a great image, how could you show off your encounter with this black bird, the yellow-hooded blackbird?  In fact, how would you even go about explaining that such a beauty exists, without expending one thousand words? ;-)  That's why, I chose the jump-first-question-later approach.  Aren't you glad I did?  

*My partner Wayne (as in a CPA firm, in my previous life) used to always say "never say never" and it stuck with for all these years.  I feel that I should give him credit for how I don't ever say never, publicly. :D
