The prompt for this week’s photo challenge asks you to create cover art for the publication (real, potential or completely imaginary) of your choice. Sometimes I think I could write a pretty decent travel memoir about all of the bumps along the roads I’ve traveled. When I’m traveling things rarely go right for me the first time around. Instead, it takes a few tries, and turns into a pretty good story, to get things right. Here’s one of my favorite shots from a recent trip to Peru in which everything that could possibly have gone wrong did go wrong. I spent a few days waiting in Paracas for the seas to open so I could go out and see the birds. If I hadn’t been stuck, however, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to explore the small town and the nearby nature reserve, both of which turned out to be lovely. If I do end up writing a memoir it will have to feature a cover photo of one of those serendipitous, “bad luck turned good” moments, like this one.
