On New Year's Day 2012, we were in Santarem, Brazil, several hundred miles up the Amazon. I began a year of "photo suites," collections of related pictures that seemed to say more in chorus than they could say alone. I've had so much fun with this project that I will be continuing it next year.
Meanwhile, back in Brazil, the mighty river is the main transportation artery for the entire region. Hundreds of little boats go back and forth carrying passengers and cargo. On the dock in Santarem, you can buy a ticket for any place you want, with your choice of competing carriers.
As the year is about to end, and a new one awaits just around the bend, I wish you boa viagem for all your future voyages, whether in reality or in your imagination.
