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.

These are some brave souls. Bloody cold & windy but they did their thing beside the San Juan de los Lagos “Saint’d Church.

20171121: Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” repair test shots. Looking Good!

So this past weekend was some part of Mexican Independence Celebration, the locals that speak English could not explain it fully to me.

But with the 16-35mm back in action, it was time to go play in the night with it.

Nothing better than a reflection in the night when you don’t have stars to shoot!

My Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 just is not able to pull this off, standing a little further back and the wall containing the fountain hides the reflection of the crosses.

Most the time this fountain is either on or dry… so I shot both sides.

Just a little fun in the lights…

Well, with a few shots with the “fixed” Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” II … I think it is going to be just FINE!

20171019: Churches of San Juan de los Lagos, poster

Yes, like any place there are many churches here, so I did a poster of some of them.20171018 San Juan Churches_AFB

Most of the tourists only see the main one, so these are a few of the others with a view less seen of the Main “Saint” Church in the center.

20171014: Timing is everything!

2017 Bimbo Pan Senor_02_FB

Yesterday, this Bimbo Pan man stopped to make his usual delivery to the Hamburguesa Stand, my manager of the new apartment.

He walked over and looked at some of my posters & photos on display. Since he could speak a little English & i get away with and even tinier bit if Spanish he told me he wanted a nice photo of him with his truck.

He then started talking of wanting the local river front for it but he was looking at my night scenes.

The night before I had taken a walk & seeing the reflection of the3 bridge in the river which is still quite full.

I pulled out the cellphone and  shot 2 frames of the reflection.

So I showed him those 2 frames and he just “Wow! Yes, I want me & my truck in front of that!”

So while he did the bread delivery I grabbed a camera & external flash and just before he drove off, I shot a couple quick frames of him & the truck. I showed him what I had shot and again he was happy with it.

Today he came by to do his delivery & I showed him the combined image, one framed as you see here & one without a frame.

He chose this one, so I will get him a print & in the next day or two of deliveries I will have the finished product for him…

So yes, I am slowly winning the hearts & eyes of these people as more & more are coming by & seeing what I can do for them.

Timing is everything, as any photographer knows, CAPTURE THE MOMENT!
