Here's a Few to Share - Boxes and Boxes of Photos
It will take time to scan the old photos into the computer using Adobe Photoshop, one by one. But, I will. Someone who reads the blog asked to see some old photos. I was really amazed at some I have of the Lake Chapala area before there was hardly a village called Ajijic. Some others are of Mismaloya, south of Puerto Vallarta, when there were only two houses on the hillside and a few old palapas left over from the John Huston movie with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The year those were taken was 1978. Amazing.
I also came across photos of the first restaurant that I designed and the last resort I designed. Sooner or later I'll share all these with you.
Now, to these four that I'm sharing today. This crucifix is embedded in the wall of a little house on Homobono which then becomes Cuesta de San Jose as it goes up the hill. One day walking to the mercado I noticed that someone had inserted a white rose in a crack in the cross. I stopped and snapped this photo.
This is one of my favorites.
As I wrote last week, this is a photographer's paradise. I think anyone would be hard pressed to take a bad photo. It is such a joy to live somewhere that is so visually beautiful and poignant.
Interestingly, I wasn't out looking for things to photograph when I took these. In fact, usually I'm trying to get my little digital camera or whatever I used to have out of my purse before the shot is gone.
Then I'm always so surprised when I get to see them on the computer screen these days. What treasures!
Hope you enjoy them as well.
