Guaruma Monthly October 2011
Guaruma is a Honduras based non-profit organization promoting environmental awareness and conservation through educational programs in the Rio Cangrejal watershed on the Eastern border of the Pico Bonito National Park. To accomplish this, Guaruma provides after school classes in English, Computation, Environmental Studies, and Photography. With these classes the students learn how to take better care of their environment, communicate with tourists, and showcase where they live.. In the Guaruma Monthly Review we show some of the best photographs by our students over the past month. ENJOY! Benjamin Katzâ€”Director of Photography

Natural Beauty Our world is full of precious and intoxicating moments and sights, if only we open our eyes. To truly appreciate where we live we must be ever present and aware of the gorgeous surroundings. Doing so has allowed our students to provide these bits of Natural Beauty.
Fabulous Flowers A day in the life of a child here in the Cuenca is never complete without seeing a magnificent sculpture in the form of a flower. Impressed with their petals, detail, colors, and scents the students of Guaruma try to capture the feelings that each of these delicate structures brings to life.
Life in the Cuenca Photography and daily life have melded together into an inseparable pair. As such we try to show the great joy that life brings to each and every one of us through: activities, games, friendships, pets, and so much more.
Photographs from Photoshop Our older students are learning how to use computers and powerful programs such as Adobe Photoshop. Here we present some of their work in manipulating and designing new images from their photographs.
