Boat Near the Waterfalls

This picture, to me, looks like an old postcard… Except for the boat, full of tourists – sometimes knowing what was actually going on ruins the scene a bit…

Since my tagline is Postcards from my trips, here’s one for you from Iguazú Falls, Argentinian side (2014). Another one here

  1. It is a great photo. And there is indeed a frustration when something little just gets in the way of what one wanted to capture. The other day I had this great shot except for the car parked perfectly in the way. I wish I had Green Hulk with me so I could go “Hulk! Move car!”

    • Thanks for the comment! I do feel like the boat adds something, too. Maybe a feeling of adventure. It’s so tiny compared to the waterfalls and you can vaguely make out people inside. What I don’t like, it the fact that I know how super touristy this place was in reality, it was hard to find an empty space to take photos 🙂 But it’s a popular place!

  2. Yes, it looks like postcards friends would send from their travels, years ago. I think the boat is fine in the photo — it shows to me that while a scene can remain the same pretty much, life can bring something new to it — often times as a photographer is about to take a shot.

    • Interesting thought, you’re right: life has brought new things to this scene. I always feel like I’d like to see how things and places were before, but the present is worth documenting as well…
