About Travel Photography,
Colors of the World.
Manfred is creator of ThisFabTrek.com, travel photography, a travel blog and a photography blog (a journey from 2004 to 2013). 'I set out to see the colors of the world, always I try to capture the colors'.
Seeing, is understanding, so I report and photograph, but formost enjoy and live those different conceptions of life (all that TV [and the web] cannot give). I reject jealousy, animosity, bigotry. Be free!
The mind, when pondering at night and always asked those questions. What am I doing in corporate wonderland of bank, university, office or church? Who is the other animal asleep deep inside, the thinker, punk, creative, or Indian, vagabond and healer, maybe artist, writer, photographer, traveler, globetrotter? Oh God, dare you to think. When I saw the lies, gambles and manipulations I follow the old dream and set out for the journey of life lived, the journey to see the colors of the world.
During years on the road I have taken the turns as they came along, and realized one thing: Only such a small part of the planet can be explored and such a vast land and sea mass will always remain unknown, to me; many swamps, jungles, deserts and oceans will never be traveled. But then I am father of twin boys, Daniel and David, my most important, and I show them some of the wonders and colors out there.
ThisFabTrek, Photography and Journey, the Stories from the Road and Life around the World, stopped in August 2013 after more than 9 years, Love and Peace.
Going to America.
North America Travel Photography.
124 days in the United States.
146 days in Mexico.
In Belize there is a sign with an arrow pointing to the road north: "Mexico, North America." I knew it by then for a while North America is only Canada, the United States and Mexico, according to what everybody else believes in the Americas... I had to learn this and it is not what I learnt in school...
One thing I understand is that the three aforementioned countries comprise huge territories of many ecosystems home to many and diverse ethnic groups with governments whose reigns had at times been a bit stretched.
The states of Central America or the Caribbean just don't fit in here, they don't want to belong to this group of 3 gorillas.
