Postcards from Tierra del Fuego
Spent a good chunk of today bouncing around the backwoods of Tierra del Fuego here in the southernmost part of Patagonia, Argentina.

Daniel’s come from Stockholm and my body is still somewhere between here and Kathmandu.
One more night and we’ll be on the boat heading towards Antarctica.

New eBook – Andrew S. Gibson’s SLOW
When I first picked up a camera the fastest shutter speeds got all the glory. My Pentax Spotmatic had a top shutter speed of 1/1000. It absolutely BLEW MY MIND when cameras began to go to speeds of 1/8000. I never had a need for such speed, but I liked to know I could freeze […]
