The Chiriquí Chatter photo albums, with the latest additions, have over 1,700 photos and has been viewed over 48,000 times. It is organized by year and then albums within that year. The first year of photos is 2003. You can see many changes in Boquete when you compare the 2003 photos to what is in Boquete today.
While many of the photos appear in the daily blog, there are many that only are in the albums. The photo albums can be accessed by the tab at the top of the web page or by clicking here.
The best Boquete Flower photos are probably contained in the 2005 album. That was the year of the major rain/flood and within hours of the photos, most of the flowers were damaged.
I try to keep the album up to date and photos are added on a frequent basis.
I use a product called Coppermine for the home of the Chiriquí Chatter photo albums.
It is organized by year and within year by album. The navigation of Coppermine is not the most intuitive. The 2006-year has flowed over into the second page of albums and they are easily overlooked.
I just thought I would mention that in case you hadn’t spent too much time in the photo albums. Many of the photos that are in the blog are in the photo album, but in a larger format. In case someone would like a particular photo in the native form, which is pretty large, all you have to do is ask. I have no problem sending you one as long as it is not going to be used for commercial purposes.
The albums also have photos that are not contained in the blog. Some albums contained too many photos and what appeared in the blog was a subset. I also have an album of photos I took on a trip to Lima Peru. Enjoy.
There is a tab on the blog to the photo albums and a tab in the photo albums to the blog.
Dixon Hamby, one of my favorite photographers, will be in David tomorrow, June 1 and I bet you will be in for a treat when he has a chance to post some new photos of his visit to David. Dixon has a way of capturing works of art in a digital medium. If you haven’t visited the Chiriqui Chatter Link sections on the right side of this page, you may have missed Dixon’s website.
I’ll make it easy. To visit Dixon’s site, just click on this photo he took of a lovely lady in traditional Panamanian dress.
I have added a new photo site to the Chiriqui Chatter Link area. It is Dixon Hamby’s Website. Dixon describes himself this way:
I am a freelance photographer whose work has been published in numerous publications, calendars and web sites including International Living, One Day in Washington, Guitar Player, Gibson Guitars, Town&Country, Living Buddhism, PhotoMedia, The Stranger, Living Buddhism, The World Tribune and The Seikyo Shinbun newspapers. Presently living in Panama.”
Currently he is featuring photos he took in Casco Antiguo in Panama City. Take a stroll with Dixon through the old streets of Panama.
I also chose another area he has of people and this particular photo is the traditional Panamanian dress that you will often see in folkloric ballet.
If you want to se some photos taken by a true professional, visit Dixon’s site.
The Chiriqui Chatter photo album has had a reasonable number of viewers since I rebuilt it earlier this year. I think the software presents the photos in a pretty intuitive manner, but perhaps it wouldn’t hurt to provide a little more information. Continue reading Photo Album Information
