I know I have a lot to catch up on as far as First Amendment, police abuse and photographers’ rights stories go, but I’ve had very little internet access and even less time to actually write stories.
But this video where I’m hiking through the mountainous jungles of Colombia will give you an idea of what I’ve been up to.
I shot this outside a pueblo called Anolaima, which is about a three-hour drive from Bogota. We hiked a couple of kilometers through the jungles to reach a creek and waterfall.
It wasn’t an easy hike considering I am used to the flatlands of Miami, but it wasn’t exactly Mount Everest either.
I was carrying two Canon 5Ds and a camera bag with multiple lenses, which ended up weighing me down.
It turned out the most valuable piece of equipment I had on me was my Flip video camera, which is what I used to shoot this video.
