Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood For this challenge, we are supposed to go out and document our neighborhood with just our phone camera.
Unfortunately, I no longer have a smart phone (and haven’t been interested enough to figure out how to get pictures out of my current phone) and I am not in my neighborhood. At the moment I am in CA in my daughter’s neighborhood. Since my blog is about Panama I decided to ask for a little creative license on this one. I have gone back through my files of photos (that I took with my camera) and put together a collection of photos that will show you a little of my neighborhood in Panama.
This is our house
This is our back yard. I was trimming weeds with a machete to see if I can do it the way the locals do it. (yes, it works quite well)
This is our front yard looking towards the right, toward the woods and the river.
This is a view of the woods from our front yard one evening.
This is the street in front of our house. You go to the left to get out of the neighborhood. The woods are to the right, where Joel is facing, and also across the street.
If you turn left on the street behind me, you go down to our house.
If you go to the middle of our neighborhood, you will find this pretty little park where the kids play.
On the way to the park are the stairs that will take you down to the river, a favorite spot of mine to relax and take photos.
OK, we’re back on our way out of the neighborhood. The roofs you see are the houses on our little street.
This is one of the streets between our house and the entrance to the neighborhood.

Just above our neighborhood. The red archway is the entrance of our neighborhood.
We had stopped to take the last picture because there was a little green iguana in the middle of the road.
This parrot (and a number of its friends) were seen in a tree on the same street as the green iguana.
If you go straight across the street from our neighborhood, you see this small street where Roberto and his calves live at the end.
Now we are going back to the house. These woods are directly across the street from our house.
There are huge banana trees in the woods!
If you turn left in the woods, you go up a hill to this pretty area.
There is a huge ciebo tree at the top of the hill too

On the other side of the hill, you meet up with the street that had the green iguana. This shack is at the end of the street. The man who lives there says he has lived there for 20 years.
If you proceed towards town, you will see these beautiful horses beside the road.
Joel on his bike riding back along the road that heads towards town.

My favorite field started to get brown.
the back of my favorite field, a good place to take photos of the sky and sunsets
The side of my favorite field, on the road towards town, another great place to take sky and sunset photos
The neighborhood water tank on the hill above my favorite field
Down the road, the big shopping area is just 5 min by car, maybe 15 by bike, or 40 on foot. We have the advantages of living almost in the country while being so close to everything we need in the city.
So, there is a little look at our Panamanian neighborhood. We are really happy there!
