|Guanajuato, Gto Mexico|
This photograph was taken from the lookout point at the statue of Pipila in Guanajuato. I like this photo because it offers cityscape vantage of Guanajuato. It captures the European influenced architecture and vibrant Mexican colors that are so much a part of the city and its life. I can smell the air and feel the dry heat of the place as I view this photo, which is part of what makes it effective: it fuels nostalgia.
|Taking the Virgin to La Basilica|
We can see the people of the city in a somewhat festive setting, which adds interest. And the composition of the photo, with the crowd curving toward the viewer and beyond makes us feel a part of the crowd and the moment (which, indeed, I was).
|Gothic Cathedral in downtown San Miguel de Allende|
|Mountainous Mexican Countryside|
Lastly, I offer a landscape view of the Mexican countryside to counterbalance my initial cityscape photograph. And, since blogger's formatting refuses to cooperate any longer, I'm off. Please stay tuned for some more photography analysis (along with some awesome photos) on Monday!
