Time To Travel
I can always tell when it is time to get away. It is not necessarily the heat/humidity, it is not always the lack of activity this time of year, it is not that no one else is here, it is the fact I can wander my favorite photographic haunts (the pier, the market, the beach) and come up with exactly one photo. This one of a vendor preparing his stall for the selling of Mexican Independence Day paraphernalia. These stalls are popping up on the streets all over town, prior to the celebration on 16 September. We have only spent one Independence Day in Mexico and so have not experienced the parades and other celebrations that mark this day. This year will be no exception as we leave this Friday for a month of travel through Scotland, Portugal, Spain and Greece. No doubt I will return full of photographic inspiration and a number of full memory cards.
