Yes I am looking out of my room door. In a small courtyard, 4 walls do make a pool.

The drain system is very poor and whoops, the rain got very heavy.

At the door step! (the white object is a splash guard so I can have the door open)

As the storm started up again in the night. The courtyard does drain and in an hour or so the water had receded.

Both this unit was very close to having a swimming pool inside.

So yes, I have been looking around for a new place fro a few weeks and this just made QUITE OBVIOUS, I need to get out quick.

Some more Lightening shots all from my doorway!

20170106: Some days you need a bucket to sit in…

Yes, I entered my courtyard and the cat was just sitting there.

I laughed and after putting my stuff in my house, came back out with my camera and tried to get the cat to turn it’s head towards me.

If you know cats, you can understand that I just gave up and shot this.

It is cooler around here & I assume the bucket full of dirt had warmed up in the sun, made a nice comfortable seat for the cat.

One of 2 courtyard cats, not really anyone’s cat it just does courtyard duty chasing mice.

The leaves are falling and the birds still gather, a time of renewal & reflections.

Happy New Year folks, may whatever the energies bring to you, may you weather it in the good faith of learning and understanding.

2016-feliz-navidad-de-san-juanfb

Just the graphic design department playing around.

Thanksgiving is no celebrated here in Mexico that I know of, but the Christmas stuff is going up.

I am going to see if a local print shop will try selling this poster for our mutual financial gain. It is getting busy here and will continue through Christmas time…

any way the fun and games of a bored professional photographer & graphic designer.

 

20161107 Early bird BORED, so I created something.

20161106 La Taberna Feliz Navidad

Yeah, all the POPULARITY CONTEST, Election USA 2016 is nuts…

My coffee shop where I do my internet is not too interested in this but I just played around last night.

Could not find the images I was going to use for a “Get Me the HELL OF THIS PLANET!” poster I wanted for today, my anti election statement… maybe I will ahve it ready for tomorrow….

This is the “SAINT” church, the one everyone in town takes every peso they can get out of pilgrims & tourists… The “Saint” well according to the “Locals” can get her own damn money. Have not heard a “SINGLE THANK YOU, to the SAINT” in 10 months of living here.  Not energy I like living in. Hope to get out of this country soon!

20161103: Sunset & birds

20161102-sunset-oh-hum-6713fb

Daylight saying time change, yeah even down here in Mexico it changed…

Took me a couple days to get it straight, had to wait for the English speaking waitress to be working and even she commented it changed. Looked at her phone and said “Well it is 10:30 but really it is only 9:30 in the morning now.

The Cafe opens at 10am officially.  So I went up on the roof last night and watched the clouds.

20161102-sunset-oh-hum-6725fb

The light rays are fun and I shot a few frames, but I am posting the bird shots…
