Vilcabamba, Ecuador

Recently, I spent 3 months in Ecuador. There was no particular reason I chose to go. I guess I just thought if would be nice.

For the most part, it was. The part that wasn’t so nice was when I had my computer and camera stolen out from underneath my feet on a bus during the day. Yes, that’s right: during the day!

I had fallen asleep for a bit and the people behind me reached underneath my seat and took my bag. After they had taken what they wanted, they put it back. They even filled it with water bottles in case I picked it up. Then they got off at a town along the way before I noticed. Be careful if you ever go there.

But that story isn’t why I wanted to write this post. My intention was to show some photos I took of the beautiful town of Vilcabamba.

I stayed there for two weeks at a hostel that doubles as a yoga retreat. For $10 a day I got a bed in a 6-bed dorm and free yoga every morning. It was definitely a great experience. The hostel is called Izhcayluma, if you’re interested.

But, again, that isn’t the point of this post. So let me just put up the photos before I get side-tracked again. 

If you have any questions, be sure to ask.

Fall Colours

The Fall colours have been beautiful this year in Toronto. I thought I’d post a few photos I took over the past few weeks. I still haven’t figured out how to use my new camera properly (a Ricoh GRII), but I think the shots I took are pretty good. Enjoy.

Last time, I posted some pictures about Windows and Doors. This time, I thought I’d post some shots I’ve taken of wheels. I won’t bother getting into any “circle of life” analogies because, to be honest, I don’t think that has anything to do with why I like these photographs. There’s just something about them.

All right, here we go…

Windows and Doors

I’ve heard it said that eyes are the windows into one’s soul. I wonder if that applies to actual windows. Do they allow us to peer into the soul of a home? Probably not. But, be that as it may, there is something magical about windows (and doors) for me, and I always take pictures of them whenever I travel.

I thought I’d post a few of my favourites with a short description of each.

In no particular order, here they are:
