About three hours north of Bogotá is the Spanish colonial town of Villa de Leyva. It is considered the best historically preserved and one of the most beautiful towns in Colombia.

The town’s central plaza (Plaza Mayor) is the largest in Colombia and perhaps in all of South America. With its cobblestone streets and whitewashed buildings, Villa de Leyva is a photographer’s dream.

I would spend my evenings in the Plaza Mayor just simply sitting in a cafe facing the square or sitting on the steps of the church watching the world go by.

Thanks guys for all your views, comments and favs!

Happy Travels!

One day I was wandering around town and I found myself in Parque Nariño. I started to photograph the statue, which was the centerpiece of the park, when these school children ran into the frame. This photograph spoke to me because of the dynamic, playful interaction of the three children.

Get out and play and never grow old!

Bogotá, Colombia - August 6, 2017: Street parade for The Carnival of Bogotá which is celebrated every year for the city's anniversary.

Sunday afternoon I met up with fellow traveler, Steve, whom I met earlier in the week at the Fernweh Photography Hostel, to photograph this parade. While at the parade we ran into another traveler, Stephanie from Germany, whom we met at a walking tour the day before.

For candid street portraits I love using my Canon 17-40 wide angle lens to create dynamic, environmental portraits like this one.

Thanks guys for all your views, comments and favs!

Happy Travels!

Reflecting back on my amazing journey through Colombia, I can't stop thinking about my time in Villa de Leyva. Some of my best memories were watching the locals flying kites in the Plaza Mayor in the late afternoon.

About three hours north of Bogotá is the Spanish colonial town of Villa de Leyva. It is considered the best historically preserved and one of the most beautiful towns in Colombia.

The town’s central plaza (Plaza Mayor) is the largest in Colombia and perhaps in all of South America. With its cobblestone streets and whitewashed buildings, Villa de Leyva is a photographer’s dream.
