Corrugated Rust

Some rust, for my daughter, Rosa, who can’t resist rust. Check out heyrosakilgore on Instagram!

Break Time

Alfombra (carpet)

A carpet of pine needles is the base of an Alfombra, to be decorated with flowers, wheat, multi-colored sawdust, breads and produce. Soon after, a float, or Anda depicting Jesus will be carried over this and many others throughout Antigua, in celebration of Holy Week, Semana Santa, leading up to Easter.

it will be destroyed by the feet of the penitent brotherhood carrying the float, and the band following, then promptly swept away by a clean up crew.

Two Way Street

Several businesses around Antigua keep food and water out in front of their shops, bars and restaurants, but still, I see this particular mother dog searching the streets for edible scraps just about anywhere I go. The girl is trying to make friends, but if she doesn’t have food to offer, I don’t think it’s going to work.

A Night in Antigua

Then, suddenly, the bright headlights of a parked car…

With the crowds and excitement of Semana Santa behind us, quiet returns to the streets of La Antigua, except for this lime green umbrella!

Follow along, see what I see, as I travel with my iCamera in Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Panama, Guatemala and beyond.

I will be traveling light, moving slow, planning as little as possible. Mostly street photography, but anything else that catches my eye.
