All of the above were shot with a small P&S inexpensive camera—Canon PowerShot A720 IS.  The more I use it, the more I hold it closer to my heart.  It means a great deal to me.  Kindly click the images to expand them.  You will be able to enjoy them better.  Good Day.

    1. Hello Barbara:

      I’m glad you enjoyed today’s pictures. I was surprised on the sharpness of the shots made possible with a small and inexpensive P&S camera.

      Enjoy your weekend as well. 🙂

  1. Hola Omar,
    Amazing the effect these photos had on me. I was transported back in time to 1968, my first time in Panama. What I remembered was my fascination with seeing all the railroad rails used for staircase railings, curbs in parking spaces, etc. It seemed like every where there were rusting steel rails doing duty as anything but supporting a train.

    Then I remembered that the building of the canal was only possible with the construction of endless miles of track for moving the dirt away. Once the canal was finished, all those rails found other uses. Perhaps the largest recycle program in history was the result.

    Great photos, as always. Thank you.

    1. Hola Jim and Nena:

      That is what photography is all about. To stimulate imagination, feelings, emotions and memories amongst a lot of other things.

      I’m so glad you were able to remember your years in Panama when rust was ubiquitous in the former Canal Zone.

      Thank you for insightful comments.

      Omar.-
