Military guard Xunantunich, Belize Travel Photography

Belize Travel Photography, the Mayan pyramids at Xunantunich are protected by military, I asked this solder if he minded me taking a photograph of him, I think he posed for me. I felt safe in Belize, the military policed a good deal of the country and were nice every time I talked to them. The pyramids are beautiful I felt the life of the people from long ago just sitting amongst what remained.


The included image is part of the series I photographed about Belize "Images Panoramic". The series showed at a gallery in the Inland Empire. I went with the idea of capturing a feel for Belize, after being there a short time I realized that the expanse could only be capture for me by Panoramas. Such beautiful landscapes needed to feel as vast as the place itself. Several of the series are included in the "personal work" section of this portrait.


I was fortunate enough to spend 5 weeks in Belize a couple of years back. What an amazing country. The people where nice, traveling there was easy, the country is magnificent, the islands were fabulous. Belize is a small country (about half the size of California), small enough that I felt like I had a really good feel for the entire country in five weeks.

Location: Mayan pyramids at Xunantunich, Belize.
