SLOW NIGHT IN MEXICO CITY / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed / FrontView

Late again. Missed that old midnight deadline. Came home from a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends at our daughter Kimberley's and got caught up in a project that I had started earlier in the day. Didn't realize how late it was getting until suddenly it was four minutes to pumpkin. Oh, well! I guess it won't hurt anything if two of my posts show the same date.

Late, too with my wish for a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I leave you with a favorite quote that I find appropriate not just for this one day, but for all days:

Let there still be, to the last, gratitude, unbounded, heatfelt gratitude, for having been granted a spell in this world of wonders.

Hasta mañana.


FIRST HAIRCUT / iPhone 6+ / PhotoForge 2

Street photography. People watching. Light and color. Walking the streets, whether near home or while traveling. These are things I truly enjoy. Capturing candid moments, human interactions, being aware, attuned, ready.

Later, at home, or back in my room, to relive those moments, enhance the images, share them; this I also enjoy.

On the streets of Valladolid, Mexico, a fraction of a second. On my iPad, a chance to slow down, savor, develop, improve. Published here, shared with the world, with you.

Time for you, I hope, to pause for a moment. Look, really look. Complete the story in your own mind. To comment and share your thoughts, here and with your friends. On Facebook, Twitter, by email or sms.

Hasta mañana.


EVENING IN RONDA / iPhone 4s / Snapseed

I was having fun playing with silhouettes outside the Plaza de Toros. in Ronda, Spain's oldest bullring, last year, while walking around indulging in my favorite pastime, street photography.

Hasta mañana.

TRES MUJERES (Three Women) / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed

I see no reason why street photography has to be always black and white, especially in Mexico, where color is so often an important part of the story.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love monochromatic street shots. But I love color, too. Mainly, I love to capture life on the street, and to present it in best way I can manage.

I also love photos that tell a story, like this one that speaks of the changes that time brings.

Hasta mañana.



A DAY OFF, SORT OF / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed

I can't believe it. I actually took a day off. Well, I did get out of the house. I even got out of town. I jumped in the van and drove down to Santa Fe for a Flamenco fix. Got there in time for a delicious lunch of duck flautas at rhe Museum Hill Cafe.

Then I photographed and shot video on my iPhone of the dancers in the Museum of International Folk Art's Flamenco Festival. An hour and a half of that, while fun, was also a fair bit of work. Add to that the two and a half or three hour drive time, and maybe a day off is stretching things.

Anyway, it was a great break and a welcome change from all that I've been working on lately. The performers, from Santa Fe and Albuquerque, put on a great show.

Now, back to working on my books. Books? Yep, that's a plural. Stay tuned.

Hasta mañana.
