Adrian's Lunch.

When "water" was selected as a theme for the next WWP event I started to think about the closest feeling of it we have every day. The first thought that came into my mind was the shower and restroom... it could be nice but it was not what I was looking for. Rain was the second thought. Merida city, the place where I live, is surrounded by rainforest so rain happen every day... nice too... but it was dangerous for my photo equipment!!. The third option was "Meal Time" and I decided to go for it! Inspired in some work that panographers shared some weeks ago in the WWP list, I did my best try. My son Adrian, my wife and me really enjoyed doing it. I'm eternally grateful to them; they waited patiently although the meal was getting cold.

El Almuerzo de Adrián.

Cuando "el agua" fue seleccionada como tema para este evento del "World Wide Panorama" comencé a pensar en cual era la sensación más cercana al agua que nosotros tenemos cada día. Lo primero que vino a mi mente fue el cuarto de baño (incluido ducha, lavamanos y retrete)... quizás agradable... pero no era la foto que yo andaba buscando. Lo segundo que pensé fue la lluvia, aquí en Mérida, está lloviendo casi a diario y normalmente, por su cercanía a la selva nublada, las lluvias son continuas todo el año... puede ser inspirador... pero no encontré la manera de hacer la panorama sin poner en peligro mi equipo fotográfico (y a la vez obtener una sensación realista del agua). Lo tercero que pensé fue la hora de la comida y ¡afortunadamente lo seleccione! Inspirado en unas panorámicas con un mismo personaje que vimos días atrás, realice la foto que ven arriba. Para ello conté con la gran ayuda de Adrián (mi hijo) y Alleidy (mi esposa) quienes pacientes colaboraron a pesar de que la comida se enfriaba.
