Both Sides Now

Do you like this one....

or this one better?

It's all about angle and lighting. I went out with my camera today, trying to find the old Jaco. Instead, I ended up with a ton of photos of all the new high rise buildings popping up, or will pop. I've been avoiding doing that. It will blow you away if you know the old Jaco (I'm talking 8 years ago) to see the beachfront today. I'm still in a little culture shock viewing the photos so when that wears off, I'll show you.

Forget that sad photo above of all the palm trees chopped up and for now...
Let's just imagine Playa Jaco 20 years ago, lined with palm trees and foliage so dense you couldn't see pass them.

hi teri.. from one artist to another.. the second photo is primo.. you created the basic triangle designs that captures the eye, you have depth, you have textures, and best of all.. a sense of peaceful welcoming calm, the kind where you would just want to jump in that boat. lay back.and look for Animals in the clouds. ..

I vote for the second also.

Thanks everyone, I liked the first one only for the little dog sitting at the gate on the dock.
This is very special property in Jaco and not well known, yet!

I liked the first better too, because of the little dog you can barely see as well as the detail and character of the dock. Needs a little work, eh?
