Photographer's Note

"A kind of lyrical ecstasy possesses young Americans in the springtime, a feeling of not belonging in any one place or in any one moment, a wild restless longing to be elsewhere, everywhere, now!" -Jack Kerouac

For all those that once got the "Beat Fever".

THE PLACE:
This is the famous Bolivian Altiplano. Anyone leaving or entering La Paz will be fascinated by this long Altiplano, second only to the one in Tibet. In fact, the so called Bolivian Altiplano goes way beyond Bolivia, stretching to Chile, Peru and Argentina as well.

Altiplano means in Spanish High and Plane. And that's exactly how this part of Bolivia is. The average height of the Altiplano is a impressive 3,300m.

THE PHOTO:
A traditional shoot of a free trekker, taken on the the front seat of a two stories bus. There is only one thing that I don't like on this picture, and it is the Flash reflex on the window. I kinda had very little do do with it, since the interior of the bus was very dark and I wanted to clearly show my foot on the composition.

MUSIC FOR THE PHOTO:

Willie Nelson - On The Road Again.

On the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again,
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world be turnin' our way
And our way
Is on the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again

On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world be turnin' our way
And our way
Is on the road again

Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again
