Postcards from Nowhere: Baja California

I shot my 50,000 image for 2009 this week during my 2,000 mile adventure through Baja California, Mexico on a dirt bike. I figured I'd sit down and cobble together a brief slideshow of the images from the trip. Most, if not all, of these are shots I posted during my travels over the last 2 weeks. However, I did go in and straighten the horizons on a few and try to improve the contrast where possible.

These photos were taken in October of 2009 in San Diego, Baja California Norte (Rosarito, Ensenada, San Quintin, El Rosario) and Baja California Sur (Guerrero Negro, San Ignacio, Santa Rosalia, Loreto, Mulege, Ciudad Insurgentes, Ciudad Constiticion, La Paz, Los Barriles, San Jose del Cabo (Los Cabos), Cabo San Lucas, and Todos Santos).

These images were all captured on one of the following:

Note: I managed to break the EF-S 17-85 mm lens (again). I also managed to lose my ET-83C hood for the long lens.

The images are compiled into a 25 Meg (4:19) Adobe Flash slideshow(baja.swf) that you should be able to open and view with any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.). To view the slideshow, just click on the photo above. If you want to view the slideshow as a Windows executable, you can play this version (baja.exe), and it allows you to play, pause, skip forward, backwards, etc.

Image post-processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended. The slideshow was created using Imagematics Stillmotion Pro.

The soundtrack is Please Don't Go by Barcelona. I chose this song because I stumbled across it not too long ago while I was surfing the intertubes and I thought it sounded pretty cool.

Lyrics in the extended entry.

Barcelona
Please Don't Go

All those arrows you threw, you threw them away
You kept falling in love, then one day
When you fell, you fell towards me
When you crashed in the clouds, you found me

Oh, please don't go
I want you so
I can't let go
For I lose control

Get these left handed lovers out of your way
They look hopeful but you, you should not stay
If you want me to break down and give you the keys
I can do that but I can't let you leave

Oh, please don't go
I want you so
I can't let go
For I lose control
