This is my cat and as the author of this blog every now and then I take a chance and share something personal. My cat will e a year old in a little over a month. This show was made when she was eight weeks old. Her personality and such were quite evident even then. Her name is Pixel and she has shown and taught me more about love and living than I would have ever thought possible from a cat. A very special creature.
As I have mentioned in my previous posts there are a lot of ruins in the San Miguel area. Not to far out of town are the ruins of an old silver mine. The building are amazing and I have made a series of great looking images there. This one is titled Door, Door Wall as that is what you see. Enjoy!
I love the town square in San Miguel. It’s beautifully landscaped and there is always some kind of activity going on there. Vendors, locals, tourists and more all make this little spot a photographers paradise. I enjoy shooting the locals. This image was kind of cool as it a show shine guy. I loved the way the guy has a hand on his customers boot like he is making a point about something. (Most likely the gringo taking his picture). And the guy on the bench is cool too. Wonder what they were discussing.
A short drive outside of San Miguel, Mexico is a small town with a big church, Atotonilco, Mexico. There is like in all parts of the area a lot to shoot. The church interior itself is a site to behold. I’ll most likely post an image of the church in the not so distant future. This image was made a block away from the church looking towards the church over some ruins. There seems to be a lot of ruins around Mexico and they always make for some great images. This one I thought looked kind of apocalyptic.
I was visiting my good friend Micahel Reichmann in San Miguel Mexico and across the street from him is a bull fighting ring. It’s kind of funny as it sits in the middle of a neighborhood. This is a shot of a cool looking water cart they drag around the bull ring to keep the dust down.
There is an oasis in the middle of Mexico known as San Miguel Allende. This a town that is hard to describe except that it has a charm that you don’t expect. It’s a great place for street photography as well as landscape photography. This is a shot made on the street of a doorway and a woman sitting in it.
