“The way we think is the way we see, and will make better photographs when we spend as much time honing our minds and our hearts as we do memorizing the buttons on the camera.”—David du Chemin, Professional Photographer
In the background you can identify the protuding tower of the majestic San Francisco de Asís Church. This cathedral was one of the original structures of Casco Viejo. It was ravaged by a fire in 1737 and again in 1756. It was restored in 1998, and now is one of the most striking churches in the country. “Que c’st beau” (How beautiful). Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

About four months ago—geez, time is flying—we took the Twisters to an airplane show at former Howard Air Force Base. It was a hot day with clear blue skies and a blazing sun. We had lots of fun.
The Twisters had a blast moving from one plane to the other. During the next few days, I’ll be posting pictures of this grand experience. We always wanted to share our days with the kids. Maybe it will be the last thing we do, before we go our way and they go theirs. That’s the way it was meant to be.
