Good Bye Costa Rica

Good Bye Costa Rica

I shot all these from Juan Santamaría Airport on my way home from Costa Rica. Some were shot from the lounge and others the gate area. I just really liked the mountains in the background for most of the shots. One tip when shooting through glass is that the dehaze tool is your friend! It will quickly add contrast back into the image that you lose because you are shooting through glass. You are still going to lose detail and…

Snapshops From Costa Rica

Snapshops From Costa Rica

I didn’t travel to Costa Rica for anything other than to get away. I only brought my Sony RX100 and had no real intentions in shooting anything. It rarely left my backpack where I had tossed it in as an afterthought for the trip. I debated on not even taking a camera as I have grown in confidence in my phone since it shoots in RAW and I can post process from those image. With that all said I did…

Intersecting

Intersecting

I was sitting in my favorite bar in Costa Rica called Theo’s having the “promoción” or promotion of 2 for 1 beers for 2,000 Colones or around $3.80 when I turned around to stretch and saw this view. Only having my phone with me I snapped the picture and hoped for the best. I then went back to my promoción. I knew when I got back home I would have to take a look at it and see how it came…

Clouds Over A Rich Coast

Clouds Over A Rich Coast

Taken while we were starting to descend into Costa Rica for a landing. Costa Rica translates to Rich Coast. Costa means coast and rica means rich. Puerto Rico, which is often confused with Costa Rica means rich port. The a versus the o on the end of the words is just a masculine or famine form of the noun. I figured why not throw a Spanish lesson in since I have spoken a lot of it these last few days….

Lonely Costa Rica Street

Lonely Costa Rica Street

I was sitting in a bar with friends and I had a camera with me and they asked me if I could take a shot with my cameras that I had in my bag. I knew I had a mini tripod so I just attached my Sony RX100M3 onto it, leveled it and then went ahead and took the shot. It was an 8 second exposure and while not visually compelling I thought I share what a supposed compact camera…

Jaco Beach, Costa Rica

Jaco Beach, Costa Rica

To prove I periodically leave the city of San Jose I took this picture in Jaco years ago before I was ever into photography.  This was taken on a venerable Olympus FE-230 that I spent like $150 on back when I first bought.  I still have it and it still works provided you shove the battery in and then manually lock it with the lever yourself.  The image was awful to begin with so I went wild and ignored everything…

Sharing the Shade

Sharing the Shade

Could not post yesterday due to a work schedule from hell that saw me working 14 hours so I’ll redeem myself today with this one.  The shadows and the bright sunlight made this shot hard to edit but I liked it and the lottery seller (the guy sitting) saw me taking the picture.  I just like the contrast of the two guys sitting in the shade and enjoying it.
