Valiant in Savaneta

In my early days of 4×5 photography, I toted a field camera to Aruba to make some images. This was one of them, taking in Savaneta in 2003:

The exposure is okay, not great. The composition also not great. Still, it’s a moment in time at a place that was magical. Returning to 4×5 and that field camera, I look forward to making better images, especially in Aruba.

Quite a few abandoned houses dot the landscape of Aruba. You’ll find some houses that might have had a bit of character, too. They just sit there, weathering the sun and wind. Here’s a quick look at one.

If you have some skills, this could be your new home away from home, a fixer upper that could be made very nice indeed.
