Through a Tattered Lens – Panama Canal Cruise

Whenever I go on a trip I take all the obligatory photos. I try to do them in an artistic way, but let’s face it, there are just so many ways to photograph all the iconic views of a given place. Yesterday I gave you a normal view of the cruise.

My favorite photos are the ones that depict the more goofy things that strike my fancy. Those are the ones I group into what I call “Through a Tattered Lens.” The photos taken BY Ms. Tattered, FOR Ms. Tattered. I like to share a few here and there, just so you can experience a little of the world through my eyes. So today I’m going to show you the things I notice that others may not. Just a sampling. I take WAAAAAY too many pictures. Or so I’m told. Bear with me here, I whittled them down as far as I could. These are just my very favorites…

  1. Ah, but you stopped too soon. I want more, more, more, please. I loved the rust on the light house, and was thinking the same thing even before I read your comment on the maintenance van.

    So, please do add more of the quirky, the fun, the typical, the touristy. Anything to make me forget how cold, gray, and blah it is here. And have a REAL coke on me (grin).

    As an aside, I brought one (Coke) home from Mexico in the early 90s, and have never opened it. Large glass bottle, too. Glad I was driving, or it would have never made it on an airplane.

  2. First, Glad you had a great time, it looks like it was a trip of a lifetime! I really enjoyed the pics, especially the ‘through a tattered lens’ views. That wall in old town, just has to be a wall mural somewhere, it is beautiful, and I love the ‘chocolate chip’ tree trunk. Must I always go to chocolate? I totally see a book, “Through a Tattered Lens” at Barnes and Noble!! You have a great ‘eye’ for amazing pics!!

  3. Oooooh! I loved these! So much texture. They grow some crazy trees down there. Nice toes, too.

  4. More, more! Love these.
