Addicted to novelty since 2001

Uneaten By Camels

We’re back in Essaouira after, all told, about 1000 km of driving in and out of the desert. I’m catching up on email and such, but I wanted to post to say that we’d survived, and to point to our 88 photos from the trip (here’s a slideshow, if you prefer).

In honour of my Aunt Lynn, who only ever wants to see one’s best three vacation photos, here’s five. Click for larger versions:

Sahara Desert at Dusk

Tasty, Tasty Hay

A Beetle Comes for a Visit

Photographically speaking, this trip kicked my ass. Looking at the photos, I recognize how much more care I need to take, how much more practice I need, and how I could really use some instruction on technique. When we get back to Victoria, I’m going to look around for a good 200-level photography course.

    Pretty great pics Darren! Glad to hear you’re still enjoying yourself. Are the nights in the desert as cold as I hear they are?

    Michel: It was cold, but not super-cold. I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and it was chilly, but tolerable.

    If you find a good photography workshop that has classes in Vancouver, let me know. I’d like to get some tips and tricks to improve my photography.
