34 Still lifes – Photos from life in Central America

Life presents the most beautiful compositions, you just need to look.

None of the images were intentionally set up by us, rather noticed and captured as  a still life representing a moment in time. I always see the beautiful compositions surrounding  us, perhaps my 20 years as a graphic designer? Enjoy these 34 scenes of daily life on the road.

These are our  1st 500 Days of travel  in pictures.

Miro and I left on our journey on mid 2009 and (with the exception of  one trip back to the states for Burning Man a month later) there has been no turning back! Our 1st 500 Days span from July 1, 2009 to November 13, 2010.

To commemorate the 1st 500 Days, Miro and I have pulled 500 of our favorite images from our journey  to share with you. We are releasing a new batch of photos every couple of days until we’ve shared all 500 of  our favorite moments. So please do check back often.

We are not professional photographers and like many, the reason we take photos is to help preserve  memories of our travels. We invite you to peek into the moments that make our travels so special to us.


And we are proud to present you with The 1st 500 Days in Pictures -33 still lifes, compositions from the road.
