EL PLACER DE SERVIR GABRIELA MISTRAL PDF

Almost 10 years ago I was in the village of San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile photographing the spectacular and varied landscapes of the Atacama Desert, the driest place on Earth. During my visit, I was able to capture the geysers in El Tatio, highest in the world at about 14, ft. One morning I got up early to capture the landscape at first light. Looking for a high vantage point, I hiked to the top of a steep trail near town. There I found a large, chiseled rock, and on the rock was a metal plaque with a short poem written by Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral.

Almost 10 years ago I was in the village of San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile photographing the spectacular and varied landscapes of the Atacama Desert, the driest place on Earth. During my visit, I was able to capture the geysers in El Tatio, highest in the world at about 14, ft.

One morning I got up early to capture the landscape at first light. Looking for a high vantage point, I hiked to the top of a steep trail near town. There I found a large, chiseled rock, and on the rock was a metal plaque with a short poem written by Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral. There is a happiness for being healthy and for being just, but there is, above all, the beautiful, the immense happiness of being of service. This portion of the poem captures the gist of the whole, and it reminded me of my father, a salesman of school desks, maps, caps and gowns, yearbooks, graduation rings and many other educational things besides.

As a professional travel photographer, I am in competition with many other excellent photographers, and I am continually in search of ways I can distinguish myself from the competition, to stand out, to be the one who removes the rock from the road.

I believe one of the biggest reasons I have been successful is I always try to go the extra mile. I may not always achieve my standards, but I always try. The beauty of this approach is threefold. First, and trust me on this, you will stand out by doing simple things that may not seem like much.

You do not actually need to go the extra mile; an inch will do. Second, it does not take talent, practice, expertise or education to provide good service, only a little time and desire. And third, you will experience the immense happiness of being of service. Now get out and shoot something. Newer Older.
