This park is right in the heart of the city. It was completely overhauled and renovated in the year 2000, and today is a nice place to go for a walk and enjoy a breath of fresh air. In addition, the park has a beautiful view of the Plaza de la Libertad.
This photo, taken in the Parque de la Sabana, San Jose, Costa Rica, during the 2008 arts festival, when I studied graphic design at the University of Costa Rica. At that time, I was taking my first year of black and white photography. This photograph was taken with black and white film with the mechanical CANON EOS 1000F. I worked on the photograph in the darkroom and did two masks for the best results. The photo shows the harmonious relationship between the animal and the fake, where organic forms combine to give a whole.
This photo was taken on the second day of my trip to Costa Rica. We stopped at Rio Danta Restaurant, when we went to Tortuguero, a Caribbean Nature Park that everyone should visit. I could have taken over 200 photos of this most beautiful nature park, the channels full of trees, monkeys, basilisks, birds, butterflies, alligators, etc. But I prefer this one, since it was the first thing that surprised me during the 12 day trip. For me, having had the opportunity to see this kind of nature, it was the highlight of the whole trip.
