Porcupine and Argentina photos

Since getting back from Argentina I've been busy with with work, getting ready to move next weekend and buying new camera gear to replace the stuff that was stolen on the trip. I've barely had a chance to get out shooting, although I lucked into this cooperative porcupine near my place recently.

Below that are some Argentina pics (I'm finally starting to process the raw files from the trip). The first photo is of what Argentina is famous for - beef. There are cows everywhere, and often on the roads, so you have to be ever vigilant when driving.

The second shot is my dad and I at the farmhouse where he lived in central Argentina, until moving to Canada at age 4. The house is now abandoned, but visiting it was a trip highlight and very nostaligic.

The last photo is classic Argentine scenery in the northwest - high-altitude desert on the edge of the Andes. I can't wait to get back there again and spend some quality photography time in those hills.

Hope all is well, and happy shooting!


  1. Hey Ethan,
    Nice stuff as usual. Nice to see you and your dad at his old place there. I hope your move goes well.
    Are you getting another 1Ds Mark 2?

  2. Thanks Greg,
    I've got 1DSmIIIs on order. I figured it made most sense to upgrade to the new body. There's not much difference in price.

    HI Ethan!

    It's your cousin Amy, I was showing my mom some of your pics online and we came across this blog...very cool. Wondering if sometime in the next couple of years you can take pictures of the farm in Harrow before we loose it in our family? It would mean so much to me to have some great pics....

    Take care! So proud of your work.
