I was reading Jon Bowermaster’s entry from his blog “Notes from Antarctica” writing about garbage resolution and witnessing the sad impact our lifestyle has at some of the most remote places in the world. While out shooting at Punta Norte the other day, I noticed this female sea lion that had a wire around her neck. She must have swam through a while ago. The wire already cutting deep her throat. How much did she have left to live? What would happen to her cub, just born a few weeks ago? Did this male knew her fate as he watched over her?
Now looking at the picture, I can’t help but notice the drama of the image. Her devotion to him, even as her fate is sealed.
It is in those moments that you really understand how our lives really intertwine with theirs. I was not just a few miles from a busy port, where chances of running into garbage is frequent. I was in a National Park, a Unesco World Heritage. A place supposedly protected.

I was back at Las Marias, wrapping up a 3-month assignment...
Ever since I was a young boy, I found my inspiration and comfort in nature
I love the wild. I love being in it and feeling it. I love the humbling experience of feeling powerless towards it.
I am sitting on the fence at the Las Marias ranch, in my hand, a gourd filled with Mate. I feel connected.
