When I haven’t captured any interesting pictures for a while, it makes me become more creative. I look through my older captures and wait for inspiration. The origins of this image will remain a mystery, but the symmetry is obvious, and so are several faces! This is a reduced version of the one I use...

Blind Musician

We were in Michoacán at the end of December in 2017. A long day traveling, on toll roads when possible, took us from Mazamitla to Morelia and then Patzcuaro, which is at about 7,000 feet elevation. We had secured rooms at the Eco Hotel ixhi on the west edge of town, and after getting settled...

Town Signs

Many towns, villages, and even larger cities in Mexico have colorful signs that are all similar. I often get a picture of the town sign when we are in a new place, and decided I wanted to make something to hang on the wall to show places we have been.  All of the pictures were...

History Wall

As you enter Chapala from the west on Hidalgo, there is a long wall mural depicting the history of the area and Mexico. This year there was a man carefully renovating the images from right to left, going back in time. The wall had apparently developed many cracks, and most of the painting had to...

Making a Sculpture Awesome

Back in January we went to a local cathedral in Guadalajara. The large public square around it was filled with vendors selling food and other items. As we walked around I took a quick shot of an odd sculpture of a head on its side. Not great. I had not even caught all of the...

Hidalgo Villa

On the way to my May 25th shoot of the Chapala Malecon, I stopped and made this 5 shot handheld panorama of a grand old, now abandoned, villa on the main street into Chapala.  (Photo 1)The originals are all Lumix RAW. (My Lumix DMC- FZ1000 is still the only camera I have in Mexico until...

Morning Along the Malecón

Chapala has a walkway on the lake shore that provides a relaxing morning stroll. From the access along Hidalgo, it passes B&Bs, restaurants, and scultptures until you get to Avenue Francisco Madero. Then it continues around a corner to the little marina of fishing boats and tourist taxis that go to points on and around...

Pup Wall

This is the front wall of a house in Ajijic. I think they are dog lovers. This is made from four pictures taken with my cell phone, and there is still one more dog on the other side of the door.

Casa Luna

It is a restaurant in Tlaquepaque. But it is also a shop with expensive household decorations, furniture, and carpets and fine leather goods. On this evening in May there was a trio playing.

Mazamitla1

This Pueblo Mágico is also known as the Mexican Switzerland. It is surrounded by a pine forest in the Sierra del Tigre Mountains. Here the typical concrete, flat roof construction style gives way to wooden chalets nestled along mountain ridges,as well as large get-away homes for the wealthy in Guadalajara. The San Cristobal Parish dominates...
