OK, Art lovers, here is a little Photoshop Collage which I will ship to you from here in Mexico.

Camino Nuevo, San Juan de los Lagos, Jalisco MX Street Photography. These street runners have several parking lots in the area & spend the day chasing cars up & down Camino Nuevo to earn a few pesos by helping tourists find hotels & parking.

Sitting on the street as life passes me by, I just shot the feces out of it. Having more pieces than the image would allow… typical photographer.

20180406: Fascism versus FREEDOM

A fascism government can not have you dreaming of freedom.

You must be under their control.

Space is FREEDOM… therefore governments lie & tell you it is not safe to be “Out There”.

You are more likely to die from a traffic accident than going into space.

If you like my work, Please consider tossing me a few coins as an artist & “Other”.

20180326: Artesanias de Jalisco, a Basilica plaza stall craftsman!

201800326 Artesanias de Jalisco-3310FB

This senor & I got chatting.

While my Spanish is still quite poor, I did understand he has been selling in front of this church on the plaza for many years some 40 or more years.

I understand his family are the people who sew this pieces he sells & other family members are here at other times.

I am no expert on needle craft but his pieces are very nice, the prices are reasonable too.

But just like my work, people only what cheap stuff, so he sells small pieces & only once in a while one of the shirts. The same as people here wanting an instant photo and not caring that i am a professional photographer. Just the knowledge to use the camera equipment goes beyond their understanding so a woman or man toiling for hours on a lace shirt is also expensive to them. (Yes, peasants are poor people by rule too folks)

A close up,

Since I have seen the “Chinese Blind Stitch”, I would say this is similar in tiny working.

Just a couple of his pieces, I walk thru the plaza all the time and see women working away on a hot plate piece or a small piece to frame.

I suppose if someone wanted to come buy some pieces and import to their country, many an old person would be very happy. He 1600 pesos for that piece above, about $89USD.

Easily what a USA woman buys bikinis & blouses for.

Another piece,

Any way, I may shoot some more of his stuff & a few others around but, if you are looking for “Old time Hand made Mexican craftworks” San Juan de los Lagos, in Jalisco Mexico does have it share of such beautiful items.
