Guitarist

This is a closer view of one of the guitar players who sang by our table while dining at Coconut restaurant.

I detest taking photos with a flash.  I like the warmer tones of natural light.  That means, of course, that I sacrifice the clarity of a faster shutter, but at times that helps capture the mood of the movement of a scene, such as today's photo.

A comment about Easter Week.  Easter is much more of a holiday in Costa Rica than in the USA.  Many government offices are closed all week.  The Bank of Costa Rica had a short day Wednesday, and is closed for the rest of the week.  It is a popular time for beach vacations by Costa Ricans.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  In recognition of Easter, we are showing photos of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, considered to be the location of the crucifixion of Christ.

I share your aversion to flash! Yes, Easter is so much more important in some other countries rater than the USA but I have many fond memories of Easter finery. Kids miss much of that (and over things as well) as our culture changes. Great photo and ...warm tones!

Yes, the slower shutter speed adds an element of movement to this picture and makes it more interesting.

I like this photo! I can't imagine businesses being closed all week. Ours won't even be closed all day today.

And I'd feel at a complete loss without fill flash.
