Small things: photo edition.  I've been in a rut lately, not taking photos, not doing anything different.  I just watched a TED talk (watch it here) about how to get out of your comfort zone.  Ugh.  I have a love/hate relationship with TED talks: I love seeing people get fired up about ideas and make a call for action, but then I have to get off my butt and do something about it.  I guess watching Netflix and eating manjar aren't the key to world improvement.  They can complement it, though.  And I'm going to count eating manjar as cultural immersion.  Yes.

Today I caught the light perfectly as it was going down.  Golden hour keeps getting earlier and earlier as we move into winter...(in May??) in the southern hemisphere.  In the shadows of the buildings it was a completely different mood, hence the Into the Woods   dark tones.

I snapped one photo of this fella before he stopped peering into the distance to sniff my shoes.  He was standing in the doorway of a local confite/internet shop, right next to the ice-cream freezer (red).  I took that as a sign to get a Magnum white chocolate ice-cream bar.  Which also counts as cultural immersion.
