tfttf660 – A Living, Breathing, Burping Organism



Chris tells about his Ethiopian adventure, about how divers the culture, history, people and landscapes are, about how colorful this country is and how little tourism he encountered while traveling Addis Ababa, Dire Dawa, the Danakil desert, the salt flats and Erta Ale, a live volcano. Chris elaborates on a picture taken at the volcano, about how and why he took it and how it was post-processed. The major learnings from the trip: be there when the light is good, plan ahead, learn to listen to and trust that faint inner voice and shout STOP! when you see a good picture, don’t be afraid to approach people, learn a few words in the local language and get things done: learn to sort, rate, post-process and backup your pictures as early as possible, maybe via Chris’ 1 Hour 1000 Pics method.
