Uxmal (January 08)

Last Saturday I spent my morning at the archaeological site of Uxmal. I have posted pics from this site quite a few times, so I a sticking mostly to shots of birds, nature etc... hope you like them. In about a weeks time I will be heading out to Chiapas again, so there are bound to be tons of photos up from that... hopefully lots of monkeys!

Celestun and Uman January 2009

No, its not deja vus... I was back in Celestun and Uman today for work, and as always my trusty camera came along to shot some pics. Hope you enjoy!

I quite like this shot, think it came out really nice

Flower market in Uman

Beach at Celestun

What can I say? I found a sea sponge and got an urge...

Cool fresh watter spring at mangroves in Celestun

The great thing about photography is that every image has a story, I wonder what is theirs

first post of 2009! (Parque de Oriente)

Well, 2009 is upon us, hope you all had a wonderful holiday and that 2009 is full of great shots! Anyway I thought I would start of the year with a few pictures I took when I went out with my dad to the "Parque de Oriente" Park. The park is the site of several sporting facilities and stuff like that, but of course what I was interested in was the prehispanic structures. Aproximetly five different stone structures can be found at the park which lay at the orient of Merida in what was once known as Che Tho (little Tho in Mayan). Although the buildings are not that large I think its really neat to find archaeology in urban areas. Anyway here are the pics.
