It was over 40 years ago. I was working at HCJB installing an FM transmitter on an Andean mountain that overlooks Quito, Ecuador. A friend capture this image on our lunch break.
I was standing about 6 miles south of the equator. Yes, that is my insulated winter coat from Michigan. At 13,000 feet above sea level, the air is chilly even that close to the equator.
On the left side of the picture, you can see the soccer stadium and the boulevard that runs to it. I was there at a game once with a press pass and a camera. The professional photographers gave me the stink eye as I watched the game with them from the sidelines. They did not understand why I stood behind and slightly to the side of the goal. From their angle they could capture all the action on the field, but that was not my interest. My assignment was to capture the goalie as he failed. The Quito team attacked the goal and my shot caught the ball entering the goal, passing just out of the goalie’s diving reach. Assignment completed! I returned the camera and film to the publicity department. They were pleased with the photo and used it in a publication.
