Sleeping ships

Time to dream, darling. Blue dreams for us for the times to be together. I want so badly to be in your dreams as you are in mine… and meet us there in a second life.

Hora de soñar, a.n.c.z. Sueños azules para los dos por los tiempos en que seremos uno. Deseo tanto tanto estar en tus sueños como tú estás en los míos… y vernos en ese otro mundo.

Ilo Harbour

I worked a pair of summers in Ilo city. I am originally from the highlands (12 000 feet above the sea level) but I’ve the attraction of the Sea. And my ancestors have felt it too for thousands of years. The sunsets from the harbour are fantastic, so when I had the chance to pass near Ilo I took a taxi to there… But I wasn’t familiar with the climate, those sunsets are just in summer, the rest of the year the sky has an overcast condition: ouch!

Anyway, there is beauty in everything so I took, stubbornly, photographs in the harbour.

The next photograph was made with a Haida ND1000 filter. It helps to take long exposures, if your camera says that the time of exposition is 1/1000 of second then with the filter you multiply by 1000 so your exposure last 1 second. In this case the exposition was half a minute. But that is just miscellaneous; I wanted to create a quieter mood…

I was very late to my sunset, late for several months indeed, lol. A few photographs more and to take a bus to travel again. I’ve nice memories from Ilo.

One day I went to Tacna city so I thought in travel to Ilo City, it’s located in a harbour of the Pacific Ocean. Probably it was one of the places where ships from the Inca Empire went to travel to the Antarctic. The sunsets here are quite amazing but only in Summer, the rest of the year it’s with fog and clouds, that day I hadn’t luck but that happens, so instead to rant I took some photographs of the landscape.

In the end the hidden sunset tinted the day with a soft red. Time to travel again.
