Buon Giorno, Napoli - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Napoli, the first city in our first trip to Italy. We had sort of read somewhere that it’s got a not-so-great reputation. On top of that, we were staying in THE infamous Quartieri Spagnoli (the Spanish Quarter).

As if it should be expected, we were scolded, in the midst of taking iPhone photography, for holding out our cell phone outside a restaurant while waiting to be seated for dinner.

So, when we stepped out at the crack of dawn to explore the next morning , I was a little apprehensive. Mind you, we could not speak a word of Italian, which makes getting ourselves out of trouble a little challenging.

So I thought.

Funny thing, as we started walking, I discovered that I conveniently knew how to greet people in the morning.

So we “buon giorno”-ed our way through the narrow streets and into the morning market.

We met a nice nonna that tried to point us the way to interesting places to visit, in a language that’s way too sophisticated for us. We also met interesting people like this one that took product delivery the vertical way.

The whole morning, nothing but good things happened to us. It seemed that an angel was watching over us. In fact, as the hours stretched into days, the angel must have stayed with us.

Stay tuned, more on Napoli soon…

What Is That Bird? - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Spotting the ever-elusive birds in the rain forest of the Amazons is a daunting task, especially when vision was never claimed to be my strength. So, when this bird, in broad daylight, presents herself in front of me, I’d wipe my eyes first.

It looks like she is dropping by from Jurassic Park to pay us a visit. I mean, who would give her babies a pair of claws on their wings?

So, what is that bird, you ask.

Ummm, I’d be more interested in asking if she personally knows a dinosaur or two.

Isn’t it fun to be spending time with these odd birds?

I’d say, just as long as I have a real bed in this world to sleep on when the night falls.

Oh please, don’t say this sunset is other-worldly. I need to come back from the Cretaceous, remember?

Night Owls of the Amazons - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

It’s early in the morning, we pulled into the thick canopy of the Amazonia. Spotting wildlife is never an easy task here in the Amazons.

It must be our lucky day. The big eyes catching the light filtering through the tree branches were giving it away.

As we held our breath and tried to adjust our vision to limited light, we met the curious eyes and the smiley faces (I think) of a family high up in the tree trunk.

Oh, hello! So nice of you to come say hi after a whole night of fruit-picking and leaf-eating. We are content from meeting the only nocturnal monkeys in the world, owl monkeys. You’ve made our day and you can go back to sleep now.

Recent news about the
Amazon rainforest fires makes me think of you.

Como has estado?

I hope you are doing well, big-eyes!
