Discussing Documentary; Visiting Elqui*

My dears,

Two internet postings you may want to visit.

First, the filmmaker Errol Morris and I discuss Walker Evans' documentary ethics:


Second, Irene, her daughter, Nettie, and I visit Elqui Valley with Brooke Gregory, with whom Irene and I visited it in 2007 (see http://billstott.blogspot.com/search/label/Elqui%20Valley*), and Angela Harnish, a U.S. "Elf" (English-language fellow) assigned to teach preparing English-teachers here in Santiago. Brooke works for the Tololo telescope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerro_Tololo_Inter-American_Observatory), and among Angela's wonderful pictures you'll see some of the installation and of the memorable international lunch we had with Tololo astronomers--would that we had a recording of it!
