Getting Back to Morocco

I'm finally getting my files more organized and have migrated to Lightroom 2.0 for this process. This process has many many steps, especially when going back to files originally on film. I'll be creating more detailed posts on my digital asset management (DAM) process, but during one of these steps I went back to 2003 for a while, organizing my photos from Morocco. Below are a few favorites.

Around the World in Black & White

I've been using Picasa for a while now, but only now have I used the portable slideshow function. The site makes it pretty easy to present a number of photos for viewing in any website. Below are a number of photos from some of my travels. All in black and white (hence the title of this post), and all geotagged - although you'll have to venture over to the Picasa Web Albums site to see them on a map.

Salt Harvesting in Bolivia

The salt flats in Bolvia stretch for miles, and only a small portion is actually used for salt harvesting. None of the salt leaves Bolivia and is only used for local consumption. It is first scraped into piles (top left), then brought outside the oven (bottom left) to dry a bit more before going to the oven area (top right).
