Shutterbug Saturday: Baños part III

More photos from Baños! Here are more shots from Rio Verde in addition to some of the shops and some of the buildings outside. I also bought an Ecuador FEF (Fedaracion Ecuador Futbol) jersey at one of the shops and you can see that jersey in one of the photos.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños part III

We visited Rio Verde (literally Green River in Spanish) in Baños which was quite beautiful. There were some waterfalls over there and rock formations. However, some people have put their names on the rocks. Even with my limited Spanish, I knew that the sign over them said “Don’t write on the rocks.”

I certainly haven’t seen anything like this here in America.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños de Agua Santa part II

Here’s more photography taken from Baños, Ecuador.

We went higher up in the mountainous part of the town where we saw the Swing at the End of the World which is over 6000 feet above sea level as you’re swinging right in the Andes. Right next to it is The Tree House which overlooks the Andes region in Baños. I tried swinging and it was amazing despite having some issues with heights.

Now, we’ll be delving into some photos from Baños, Ecuador!

We stayed in the Hotel Sangay which is near the hot springs in town. We looked at the cityscape of this small town which is in the middle of the Andes and the Amazon.

Poetry Alive Highlights 2017

Here’s a nice change of pace from some concerts videos that I’ve done over the past few months.

This is a sample of the Poetry Alive 2017 event at the Gail Borden Library where the poetry group performed some of their works. This people are just so talented when it comes to being wordsmiths and doing different styles and genres of spoken word.

I would like to thank Michelle Kaczor for filming this. All I did was perform some of my poems and edit the footage.

Yes, that is a spoken word version of a certain Ospreyshire track in the video that I read.

Shutterbug Saturday: The Quilotoa Loop

Shutterbug Saturday: The Quilotoa Loop

Welcome to The Quilotoa Loop!

Quilotoa is a volcanic lagoon inside a crater. It’s over 12000 feet above sea level and there are some towns built right on the slope right here in the Andes. It was quite a sight seeing this natural scenery and I’ve never seen a volcanic lagoon (let alone volcanoes) in my life until visiting Ecuador.

Steve Barnes & The Hazy Sparrow Live @ Hazy Sparrow HQ

Here’s a triple threat of tasty music for you!

I’ve had the honor to film Steve Barnes & The Hazy Sparrow. You may have seen some older videos with Steve & Bethany Barnes, but this time it’s with those two plus Steve and Brian Baxter on bass and drums respectively. How often do you see two families in the same band? They did a wonderful job with this short set.
