Sandy approaches– as seen from my upstairs window

11 a.m.  Sandy is now churning off the coast of Virginia somewhere and beginning to head toward the coast. It is not due to hit  Southern New Jersey for another 8 hours or so. I am in North Jersey out of the storm’s direct track and hundreds of miles away from the eye. Even so, winds are  35 mph and it is raining.  Since the entire state of New Jersey is shut down, including all rail and surface mass transit,  I am stuck inside. So, I did what any photographer would do. I took my camera and looked out my window.

A Rainy Day in Panamá

Bocas del Toro is an archipelago off the Caribbean coast of Panamá not too far from Costa Rica.  Bocas Town, on Isla Colon, is a funky town, only accessible  by boat from Almirante, Panamá  or  by air from Panamá City or  San Jose,  Costa Rica.  The primary tourist activities are aquatic sports and bar hopping.   It was  raining  heavily,  as it does most days in July,  and I was taking shelter from a downpour in a local watering hole  when I got out my camera.

For photographers in the group I was using a Canon G-1X with the ISO set at 12800 so I could shoot in ambient light.
