The theme this week is No Flash. I like natural lighting, so this week should have lots of great photos.
While I was walking one morning in the San Pedrito area of Ambergris Caye in Belize I came upon this little girl playing beside her house. The area that her family lived in was very run down. The lot next to her house was used as a dump with all kinds of trash. To this little girl it was her own playground. I am always amazed by the resiliency of children. I have noticed many times that even in what we would consider terrible circumstances, children figure out a way to have fun.
I really like this photo of my Daddy. One evening we had been burning a brush pile. He was watching the fire and making sure that no sparks escaped and started anything on fire. When I am watching a fire it is almost mesmerizing, and it looks like Daddy was mesmerized. I took the photo with just the light of the fire. It gives the photo a warm reddish glow. With the low light situation and a hand held shot, the photo isn't sharp, but but I feel that it adds to the warmth and naturalness of the shot.
