For a photographer San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas, Mexico is an everyday all you can eat buffet. Everywhere you turn it seems there are new images begging to be captured. Now that I  am on this retirement adventure I have the time to invest in making these images. One afternoon few weeks ago I sat down near the western wall of the Catedral y Templo de San Nicolás with my trusty Canon 7D and just observed life through the lens. The sun was strong and the wall look impossibly yellow and saturated but, it was a great way to spend an afternoon, and I think I made some good images. If you would like to see more of what I did that day you can go to my Journeyman Images Photography site and check it out.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
