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... 2w
  •   salvarezphoto @neilshea It has always amazed me how questions that come up on stories often lead to other stories. My art story is the direct descendent of the piece we worked on in Paris and that on came about as the antipole of what we did in Madagascar. Your work in Kenya grew out of what you and Randy did in Omo. The questions we can't answer often lead to whole other projects. I'd love to see your journals along with the story that you are writing. We gather so much knowledge on assignments and most of it is cast off in making the final piece. Seems a waste really. 2w
  •   escobart Great discussion, great reflection. Best wishes 2w
  •   chamiltonjames You're so organised! Mine are a mess of writing I can't read. Im inspired. 2w
  •   salvarezphoto @chamiltonjames oh I chose the most organized page! Most of it is a mishmash of 1/2, baked ideas scribbled under the effects of jet lag. 2w
  •   akimiking @kingkelsey7 @kevinking768 journal inspiration 2w
  •   chamiltonjames @salvarezphoto but you've got coloured sticky tags and nice hand writing! I'm getting a book now! 2w
  •   neilshea13 @salvarezphoto It's true, all these paths winding through the stories, the dots leading us on. Often missed in the moment. It would be fascinating to gather some of this extra material together sometime. Add it to the list! 2w

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 4w

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. 4w

salvarezphoto Sunrise over Canyon Lands. I still can't believe I shot this on a smartphone. Its been a year since Nokia asked me to take on the American Southwest with only a Lumia smartphone. The results still amaze me. #windowsphone #canyonlands @thephotosociety 3mon
