Hey Ross, I sort of wish I had some photos from that time also but I did not travel with camera for 2 reasons. Traveling in Mexico and the Central American countries for 2 to 3 months every winter, I was on a shoestring budget, and film/developing was expensive. In the small town back country places which for me was where the coolest scenes and people were, taking photos of people was likely to be an offensive and suspicious act. But I also reasoned that, more importantly, thinking about and composing a photo was an act of being in the future and took me away from fully experiencing the present people and places. I do love seeing those photos that others took. What I did do though, is keep a journal. At the end of most days I would write down what happened and what I saw that day. I still have those crude and abbreviated writings and they are treasures to me.
