This candid, or found, as opposed to formal, still life is from the Mercado San Juan de Pugibet, scene of several of my interior street photos.
From Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico, hasta mañana.
When I saw these two girls standing, tired from shopping, in front of this wall, I knew I had an idea for a mini-theme, images in color, with black and white elements.
Then I remembered this shot from earlier,
I went looking through my recent street photography from here in Guadalajara and found a few more that could fit the into the series.
Again with the gowns. I happened to walk through the neighborhood where gowns are sold. Who could resist?
Lupita's Cantina, just down the street from my hotel, seems to have beeten me to the punch with this take on the famous Frida…
Then there's my favorite. The one I almost missed. So much color, and yet such extreme black and white!
I hope you enjoyed these. I will be looking for more.
Another from the When a Painter Snaps archives. This image also appears in my forthcoming book, CAR PARTS. Watch for it.

When photographing car shows, it's really hard to keep myself out of the image. So sometimes I just go ahead and make the most of it. Or maybe I'm really a raving narcissist. Whatcha think?.

This charming little guy brightens our kitchen and warms our hearts. Maybe he can bring a little joy into a corner of your morning.
Work continues on my book projects, as well as on a catalog for my upcoming March exhibition at Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe. So. I'd better get back to it.
