The sight of a Capuchin Monkey would cause our paparazzi on board to quickly muster to the bow of the boat, hoping to catch the perfect shot. Tracey simply calling our attention to a bird in a tree on the bank would rouse the photographers among us to follow her gaze, hoping to zero in for a clear photo.
But there were also those times when I did not think about picking up my camera. Experiencing the wonder of the endangered Pink Dolphins frolicking beside the boat while we moved down the river was much more rewarding than trying to photograph them. Moving through a thatch roofed market while looking at locally made wares, was much more interesting than trying to get that great shot of the locals.
Often the experience got lost in the translation of the imaging. Even the best photographer cannot always capture the moment on Kodachrome as it is in real life. All that said, the images I captured will allow me to relive the experience for a life time.
