So whatever you celebrate, in whatever style you do it, may it be happy & fun.

(personally I hate this time of year too many family members have used Nov. to Feb. to destroyed everything in my life. But I lived in snow country for 25 years so I love winter itself, without humans.)

20171015: Fiesta San Juan Poster… #1

OK, so I worked into the wee hours, got some sleep and was back at it a couple hours later.

Fiesta San Juan de los Lagos, Jal MX.

Just the few of the photos, But the fast eye of the newspaper Photo editor in use here, & a little skill on the computer.

1pm local time Sunday, I was sell this poster on the streets… (meta data on the last frame shot was 10:05pm Saturday. Not too bad for a one man operation.)

With 1100 frames to review slower, I am sure I will use other photographs & maybe do another poster.

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)
