THE HAT VENDOR

The Hat Vendor plies his trade daily in front of the Parroquia in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Hasta mañana…

 

THEA

She was standing next to me, looking at something on my iPad. Out came my iPhone for this candid detail shot, a virtual portrait.

Life is Grand!

Hasta mañana.

 

YOUNG TRICK ROPERS, GUADALAJARA, MEXICO

Go behind the scenes at any Mexican rodeo, or Charreada, and you will find several men and boys practicing rope tricks, an important part of the sport.

 

HOME IS WHERE I HANG MY HAT

Continuing our visits to the archives of When a Painter Snaps, with a selection from March, 2012:

HOME IS WHERE I HANG MY HAT / iPhone 4 / PhotoToaster

This seemed a fitting image for today, as I'm busy packing for my trip to Mexico on Monday. I'm heading off to photograph the International Charro Championships in Puerto Vallarta. After that I will roam around, visiting some of my old haunts from years past. You're invited to come along. Lots of last minute things to do, then we're scheduled to fly out of Albuquerque early Monday morn. I've really never had much luck doing a running commentary when traveling, but hope to manage it this trip. Wish me luck, and buckle up.

Hasta mañana.
