Nicaragua Photojournalism Fall 2015 Hopefully a few different adventures with this trip. After arriving in Leon, Nicaragua on Tuesday morning at 4:00AM on August 4th, 2015 - - - a week of getting settled and we are off on an adventure to the East Coast of Nicaragua - a place we have always wanted to visit. Not exactly a straightforward trip of hopping in the car and driving for several hours - this adventure involves catching a van/bus at the Terminal in Leon - - - taking a 2 hour drive to the UCA Terminal in the capital city of Managua - - - a half hour taxi ride to the Terminal with the bus that goes the first leg of the journey east (we arrived in time to get tickets and a 3 hour wait) - - - 6 hour bus ride (old school bus) through the isolated areas of Central Nicaragua arriving at 3:00 AM in El Rama - - - find a place to sit or stand by the dock until sunrise when speed boats would transport us down the river to Bluefields - - - boarded the boat at 6:00AM and arrived in Bluefields just after 8:00AM. Total trip was around 17 hours - tired exhausted and hungry. Here are a few shots taken at 8:00PM at the terminal in Managua: I wanted a shot of Anne and I sitting in the terminal. It was very dark and so I set my camera (triggered by 12 second self-timer) on the bench across from us beside these two guys. After I took the shot, I showed them on the screen - and they were surprised how bright they were. The exposures were a second or two at 2,000ISO. Top: I asked if they wanted me to take a shot of them. They did. I got their Facebook page and sen the files to them. Bottom: I set my camera down on different surfaces and took shots in the dark. I was taking an overview of the people in the terminal with the camera set on the wood ledge of the ticket room - noticed this lady with her face in the wicket hole - spun my camera and took this interesting shot.
