salvarezphoto Yesterday morning at Victoria Falls. Today we try to work our way upstream to the base of the falls. Even with Septembers low water it will be a challenge. #windowsphone @natgeocreative @thephotosociety 1w

salvarezphoto @neilshea13 The notebooks we carry in the field are amazing journeys in themselves aren't they? I was just going through mine from the art story that will be published this winter. The two books span 3 years, 7 trips and 6 countries. Of course I have my images from all those trips but there is something about the words and drawings and the notes in the margins and the stains in a field journal that I have always loved. Maybe it is the roughness of the unfinished journal that feels more real to me than the polished magazine piece. Maybe it is that in my journals I write my questions many of which never get answered... 4w

salvarezphoto A yak driver pauses at the entrance to Pangboche, Nepal. These guys are the truck drivers of the Khumbu. Tourism, the life blood of the valley, would be impossible without the constant stream of food and fuel these men (and and the porters their brothers in arms) bring up the valley. But for the most part they are not Sherpa, they are from the warm, humid lowlands. They lack the Sherpa’s genetic advantage at altitude so hiking at 14,000 feet in a snow storm was as hard on them as it was on me. Or at least that is what I tell myself… #nepal #portrait #truestories #windowsphone 1mon

salvarezphoto Lama Geshe ties a red string around Mimgma Sherpas neck during a blessing ceremony in Pangboche. He tied one around my neck as well and it served as a talisman on the trek up and down the Khumbu Valley. I've recently moved it from my neck to my wrist but there it serves a different function. It doesn't bring luck but serves as a reminder of where I've been and who I am. It just a simple string but also so much more. 1mon
