Beauty in the Simplest Things: A Photographer's Perspective

By Katrina Heimark

Armando AlcázarWith his deep belly laugh, his shining eyes, and his propensity to talk passionately about all things under the sun, it is easy to understand why Armando Alcázar can find beauty in the “simplest and seemingly insignificant things.”

A photographer by passion Armando has not always dedicated himself to the art which he feels has given him a special gift of “seeing, capturing and showing the beauty of God’s creation.” In fact, one could find his life story to be one people only read about in story books.

Then and Now; a Pictorial Essay of Change: Part I

By Rodney L. Dodig

Then and Now; a Pictorial Essay of Changes in Lima, PeruA friend of mine here in Lima, Jose Perochena, was showing me his collection of old photographs and postcards of various buildings and streets. It was amazing to see how these places used to look, and in some cases how much they had changed over the years. This gave me the idea to go back in time and try to take a new photograph from the same area or position that the old photographer had taken the photo. In some cases, it is impossible for me to do this so please forgive those variations. What follows is a pictorial essay with a brief written history of each of the “Then and Now” photos. This will be the first of several articles I will write, along with photos, so that you can see the change that the hands of time has brought to Lima.
