This week in Photos (third week of August)

The last few weeks have been quite good for shooting, although I have not really been able to get out of town, I have managed to get a fair amount of photos I am quite happy with. Also I have a few shows coming up, so stay tuned to the blog... since I will be posting more info on this soon. Anyway here are just a few pics I took this week and would like to share. The first four photos are of these old books I found abandoned aboutside... it was really quite sad, since some of them were quite nice... I guess not everyone apreciates that kind of thing. The fifth photo I like to call "The poor mans Eiffel" or "Eiffel Fayuka" (for yucatecos). Hope you enjoy them.

horray for experiments!

This past week was my week off… I did not end up going to Honduras as I had hoped *sigh*… but I had a nice time just relaxing in the house and taking care of some things that needed tending to… but mostly I just played around with my cameras. I decided to try to do something a little different… i had been wanting to play around with a few techniques for some time and just fool around. I am fairly pleased with the results and I may even end up making some nice big 16x20 inch prints (since all the original files are in the 10<>

South end (ish) Downtown Merida

This morning before work I ventured out to try to find some clip things I needed for some frames and wandered around the more run down south end of the city centre. I did not actually find what I was looking for… but I could not resist the urge to shoot a few pics (although all I had on me was my very poor Olympus point and shoot). Anyway here are the photos. Maybe one day this weekend ill go out there and shoot some more in the area, with a little better camera.

North-Central Yucatan Coast

Daniel and I got up nice and early today and headed north to the coast in hopes of snapping some photos at the swamps around progreso and chelem. We left town at about 6.30 but by the time we got there we did not have much time before the light started to get flat… however we did manage to take some pics. After that we just kind of drove around for a while and photographed some birds and landscapes. Hope you enjoy the photos.
