The photograph that I choose is very special. To be honest, I don’t know who took it neither when, but I found it because always I have been interested in the art of the Body Paint.
Particularly, this pic I like very much because it could have many different interpretations. Firstly, the corporal art is a topic that personally I love it. The body permanently is communicating things, and I think that the exploitation of this quality through of the body paint is very enriching and it has many contents.
I choose this photograph because it shows a scene, which meaning achieve materialize a feeling that often I have feel. A desire to blend with the world. Introspection.
Another aspect that can be read in this photograph is the simplicity of the human being as “entity that occupies a place in space”. We are one part more of the environment.
In addition, the beauty of this photography stands on the female figure. This is interesting because, while her body is part of this wall, which it is inert/barren, this in turn comes life/fertility through female body shape.
And as last feature I would like mention the techniques of the painter. The degree of reality that he achieved with just a brush is amazing. Look at the crack that appears in the right arm of the model, is very real! Or the corner of the window across her chest… the mixture of colors is perfect and really does the body is a constitutive part of the object.
Finally, perhaps the most interesting of this photograph (and of the paint basically) is that it is highly dynamic. By this I mean that the interpretations, meanings and descriptions of the scene, could be infinites because all this emerges from the subjectivity of each observer.

I think that is very difficult define one complete day as the best, because the life is a mosaic of good moments that alternate with others not-so-good. But, I will try.
In general I think that the trips always are a great experience, and although I made a few trips, all has been very significant. I really enjoyed happy moments in each of them.
I remember one day when I was in Easter Island. Actually, every day in this place were really amazing. But one of the most exciting things was dive between chorales and goldfishes. This day was really nice, because with my friends get out early morning to Hanga Roa. There we contact with a diving center, where made us a previous instruction class. Then, we went in a motorboat into the sea, in at a point where we were at 10 feet deep. Each of us had accompanied by an instructor, so dive was not so difficult. It was the 20 minutes most beautiful of my life: Clear waters, white sands, beautiful colored fishes… an underwater landscape amazing! The only ugly were our faces with the diving suit, glasses and the oxygen tank… we looked awful hahaha.
I totally recommend diving, furthermore it’s not so expensive… If you really want to do an unusual and exciting activity, could save money for the next summer and look for a diving center. I’m sure you will like.
Blessings to all

Probably I would use the camera frequently, because I'd carry it everywhere.
I believe that through photography is possible to save important moments for the future. In addition, trough the photos can share these moments with others. In this sense, the photographs function as a memory device that immortalize moments considered as important or beautiful.
So far I survived without having a camera, but I think it is time to buy one. Especially because my memory is terrible! Having a camera, I would like to take a photography course to learn how to take good pictures and share them with other people as well.
