Three days, thirty pictures + one

Guided tours accompanied by many people is not exactly the thing I usually like to do. Normally I walk on my own. As a photographer I've always understood my travel photos as lonely moments of observation but being part of an eco trip across southwestern Saskatchewan with people full of similar affinities and similar soul and feelings of facing the possibility of living in a better world was an unforgettable opportunity.

Thanks to everyone who tried to understand my English and shared with me their experiences.

I'd like to share with you my personal views of this trip.

Thanks again

Old territory populated by bison, which were the basic food for the Indian, Grassland West Park impresses with its valleys and the very funny Praire dogs.
Nowadays the buffalos were almost extinct and were re-introduced into the area of the park but for the indigenous people only the skeleton remains in a tent.

The Cyprest Hills





The Fort Walsh in the heart of Cyprest Hills was built in the second half of the 19th century and served as the basis for the mounted police during the most dramatic period of the West's colonization.






Planting grapes to make wine in the middle of the prairie may seem strange but believe me, I saw ...


Finally, a photograph of friends.

A vida é feita principalmente de bons encontros, aqueles que potencializam nossos corpos e espiritos.
Sentir espaços que nos modificam de alguma maneira foi a experiência do encontro com as imagens sensíveis do fotógrafo.
