Description During the time I was attached to the Colombian equivalent of our Pentagon I would take short weekend road trips a few hours from Bogot. Since the country is a bit dangerous but beautiful I would not venture too far unless I was on a mission; but then I was not carrying a camera. This was taken with a medium format camera, north of Bogot. I noticed a small church far from the main road and as we crossed a train tunnel I had my driver find a safe place to park and we hiked back about 200 yards and found a way down to the old rusted tracks. As he stood watch I set up my camera on the tracks to get some of the country side and the little church. After a few shots my driver yelled for me to get off, what I thought was deserted tracks. A minute later a 4 man track inspection vehicle zoomed by.
Larry Costales, Lake Elsinore Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement A self taught photographer, I do actor head shots and portraits for money and fine art images for myself and love of the art. Due to my military duty that took me away from home on five year long tours, after 20 years I am still an undiscovered actor. No regrets, I even served one year in Kuwait as a contractor because I still felt a need to support our troops. I specialize in color and texture and while I was in Kuwait I expanded my art to include some people. I always try to capture some sort of mood or emotion in my images that I hope you notice and are effected by. A few of my images are first place award winners, others have yet to be submitted for competition. Please leave a comment and let me know what images you liked. If your a LA Dodger fan I can be seen on You Tube- 2007 commercials. Look for "Miracle Toast".
