The Costa Rica Writer in Guatemala

Last week I felt a little out of place on a photo shoot in Antigua, Guatemala – being the Costa Rica Writer, and all. The shoot was for College of Charleston’s alumni magazine – which just so happens to be where I went to school.

We took photos of an amazing artist, biologist and teacher specializing in watercolor paintings – mostly of birds in their natural habitat. His name is Dan Davis, and you can check out some of his work at his website here. Talk about talent. I didn’t even know you could paint that realistically in watercolors. (Or acuarelas, as they’re called in Spanish.)
