i hope that womb's not too warm because it's cold out here and it will be quite a shock to breathe this air, to discover loss
i left the baking hot tarapoto to travel a few hours to laguna azul in sauce. when i arrived at the lake it started spitting slightly, so i sought (is that a word - doesn't look right?) shelter in one of these hammocks. the spitting turned into a relentless downpour which managed to penetrate the thatched roof and left me soaked to the bone. i was frustrated at first, but the weather seemed to present so many different photo opportunities that you just don't get when it's dry. it's a shame that cameras aren't waterproof as i was really concious of the dangerous concoction of liquid and electronics. when i took this i ran from a more watertight shelter with the camera under my tshirt, pulled it out for 5 seconds and took 2 shots, and then raced back to cover. i'm glad i took the risk as the camera survived, and this became one of my recent favourites.
