An Evening in Valparaiso, Chile

P1020141 copy.jpg
I took this picture as a part of my extracurricular photography class with Chilean students. It was a class of about 15 students and there was only one other person from the U.S. taking the course. My Professor can be described as an aristic hippie with a dark sense of humor. He took us to one of the oldest cemeteries in town where we all practiced taking pictures utilizing the manual settings on our cameras. I particularly liked this photo because of the juxtaposition between the fence, the graffiti and the rolling hills of the expansive city. Graffiti is very common in Chile and in many cases it is considered artwork. Despite the language barrier, I was proud of myself to be brave enough to try the class. Art is a very universal thing that everyone around the world can participate in no matter what language you are speaking.

    I read the content on websites ahead of I leave a brief review. If I have nothing to say about the content topic, I will not leave any feed-back. And I like to read somebody else’s reviews on that post likewise. Because I can find interesting ideas from the suitable comments. I would have posted “Notable blog! Terrific posts!” then I might be spamming your blog. I too use a web page, the first thing I will do every day once i signed up on my blogs is check commentary to my posts and physically approve or reject these opinions. Keywordluv not just brings you more commenters. It raises your position in search engines mainly because you’re not merely on many “dofollow blog lists” but also on a variety of those “keywordluv lists”. Cheers, Fiona
