The world is flooding and yes my front door is no better!

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.

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!

My walkover bridge, Reflections. Daily Prompt: Bridge

20160921-reflections-part-2-6516fb

I walk along the river that passes through San Juan de los Lagos, this bridge is at the end of my street. So it is the starting point and ending point.

My timing was good to get the reflections just right on a day or so after a heavy rain filled the river bed.

Birds of San Juan de los Lagos, yes the black spot in the bottom left is birds…

flying down from the trees on the right side, then back up to the trees.

Birds coming up stream from behind me and flying down stream in the clouds of the sunset. Very noisy, and with a couple hundred on the ground by the stream…

Wow, Birds! what more can I say?

Just a little fun as the storm approaches.

Kind in the wrong place to make this really work nice for the church but still kind of an interesting composition of light on the city.

20161012: Black&White Lessons E-book in the works. Trying to get it done within the 45% Off Sale.

20161012-bw-conversion-e-book

OK, so with my doing several post on black & white conversion of digital color I realized yes, there is another Much needed E-book.

I am taking the time, to put an e-book together. Adding screen shots not seen in the posts and filling in the details that I can get away with in a book.

Yes the 2 recent posts will be inside plus some more, and I will also add some Black & White photos of other areas without the lessons just to have some more ideas of what can be done.
