As a photographer, nothing inspires me more than traveling. Seeing new sights, meeting new people, and experiencing different cultures are just what I need to get the creative juices flowing.
In October 2019 I spent 2-weeks in "Colonial Mexico". I visited three cities; Guadalajara, San Miguel de Allende, and Guanajuato. Beginning in the early-1500's, thru the Mexican war of Independence in the 1820's, this area of Mexico was referred to as New Spain. Due to the Spanish influence, this part of Mexico looks a lot like Europe with narrow-stone-paved streets and buildings dating back to the mid 1500's. It is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful parts of Mexico. In fact, both Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende are UNSECO world heritage sites.
One morning, while walking home from breakfast, I took a new route back to my rental house. On a quiet side street I encountered this dog watching the world pass by his window. I stopped to say hello and take a few pictures. This image is my favorite.
