Paradise Village shows off their resident parrots every couple of days. You have to keep your distance most of the time, but you can pose with their scarlet macaw after the show. Normally the hotel staff takes your photo and sells you prints – I have one that needs to get framed, in fact – but they were gracious enough to let me get my own close-up shot. Large version available here.
There are about half a dozen parrots on display at Paradise Village in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. Normally you can only see if then in their cages…unless you know when they’re taken out and having the cages cleaned. As long as you don’t get *too* close, they’re fine with some quick photos. This one was taken so close, you can see my reflection in the parrot’s eye! Large version available here.
Large version available here. Came across this during my morning walk. Hopefully she liked the shower…
This week’s challenge is all about depth. I was doing this National Geographic photo assignment that required a faceless portrait, so I decided to focus on what everyone sees first when they see me: the hair. You don’t see many guys rocking this style. Upon closer (macro) inspection, I’ve just now noticed how many layers deep two feet of curly hair really is!
