Sit down, look, breathe, look again and be quiet. Just another beautiful and warm goodbye to a wonderful day. Enjoy!!!
EMR Studio is a recording studio used for musical production and mixing. The facility is located in Santa Isabel, Puerto Rico and specializes in Latin music.
Owned and operated by Marcos Sanchez, EMR has had the opportunity to work with Multi-Latin Grammy Award Winners Alejandro Sanz and Kany Garcia along with popular TV Shows such as Idol Kids Puerto Rico and NBC Telemundo.
Recently I had the opportunity to take pictures while they were recording a music album. Those pictures were to be sent to a company to do a feature of the studio in the company's website. Here you can see the results, enjoy!!!
You can see the article in the company's website here.
The Greater Antillean Grackle (Quiscalus niger) is a grackle found throughout the Greater Antilles and the Cayman Islands as well as smaller, nearby islands. Like all Quiscalus grackles, it is a rather large, gregarious bird. It lives largely in heavily settled areas.
It is very friendly towards humans and is known on various islands as cling-cling, chango, chinchilín, and iguana bird. Enjoy!!!
Puerto Rican Woodpecker (Eng.), Carpintero de Puerto Rico (Sp.), Melanerpes portoricensis (Sci.), endemic of the islands of Puerto Rico and Vieques.
Melanerpes portoricensis is the only common woodpecker found on the island of Puerto Rico. It is rare on the island of Vieques.
The Puerto Rican Woodpecker has a black upper body with bright red throat and breast and a white forehead and rump patch. Lower body is buff (light yellow)
Like most woodpeckers, M. portoricensis uses its chisel-like bill, long, barbed tongue and sticky saliva to glean food from bark and holes it drills in trees. It eats beetle larvae, earwigs, ants and other insects. It will also occasionally eat spiders, frogs and lizards as well as berries and fruit. Using its bill, the male bird chisels-out nesting cavities in trees (and sometimes even power poles!) so that the female can lay 1 to 6 white eggs. When flying it flaps its wings several times, pauses, and then flaps again giving it a distinctive undulating, wavy flight pattern. Enjoy!!!

Here we can see a newly wedded couple smiling for the lens. I was hired to operate a photo booth at their wedding and with their consent I did a background replacement of one of their pictures taken in the photo booth. When I showed them the results, lets say they were really happy. Enjoy!!!
Here you can see the highly evasive Troupial perched on a Tamarind tree. This little fellows are a little bit difficult to photograph and they get spooked fairly easily. This one was feeding and climbed to the top to catch the sun rays. I was really careful not to make any noise because I only had a 200mm lens with me so I had to get really close to get this shot. Hope you like it, enjoy!!!
I See You
Here you can see a fungus the grew in my front lawn. I wanted to try a different approach and photographed it straight from the top. Enjoy!!!
From The Top
Today's picture was taken from the vantage point provided by a mountain top in my hometown. From here you can see the windmills providing an alternate power generating source and also you can catch a glimpse at the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Definitely, I live where you vacation, Enjoy!!!
What a View!
That's seem to be the thinking of my son Alejandro as I was trying to snap a few pictures. He doesn't like to be photograph a lot, so he faked a little smile to get it out of the way. Enjoy!!!
Ok...ok, Take My Picture
