Panama City, Republic of Panama 091912 I had the privilege of being given a tour of the Panama Canal expansion for a Boston Globe/ New York Times story on the effects of the Panama Canal expansion on the US economy. BEHIND THE SCENES: Since the beginning of this project as s proud Panamanian I've been wanting to photograph some of this gargantuan project. What I caught on this day was merely a glimpse and I was stunned by its sheer size. On a side note, I did this while on sabbatical for the Boston Globe. Even though, I work for them they hired me for this specific assignment since I had planned to be in Panama on this date and I'm glad they did. TECH STUFF: MarkIV, Nikon D3s, Nikor 24 2.0, Canon 70- 200mm 2.8 + 1.4 TC, Lens Baby. I decided to go with black and white since I have a dear friend of mine who is a Panama Canal pilot and he collects all Panama Canal related historical images and documents and I've always been taken by all those dark tones found in these type of photos.
