    .:: Analog gallery: South-America ::.

    I must apologise in advance. In some ways I'm still oldschool - I didn't buy any digital SLR with me like 99.9% motorcycle travellers nowadays do who seek good photos. So I took my beloved film camera instead since I do love to be different, and personally I love the aspect that the film gives to all the digital boredom that is facing you everywhere you step. This is why you don't see much "bike here - bike there" type of motorcycle travelling shots here - those I keep for our point and shoot cheap digital camera that other threads pictures are made of. Hopefully you'll understand.

    I've put all the photos from South-America I've taken so far. If all goes well, there will be more in Part II in the future...

    ever had the feeling you've been cheated
    A really beautiful portfolio Margus and i am pretty sure they only convey some of the magic of actually standing there with all the senses taking it in not just the eyes.

    My favourites are the BW(infrared) salt lake photos, stunning

    as an aside to the beautiful images, a trip report from your good lady pillion would be nice and new
