Revolution Day: Faces in the Crowd

Tuesday was the Revolution Day parade. The parade was filled with mostly students in their school uniforms, but there were also a lot of folks in the traditional wear. The women were dressed in bright colors so they were the most fun to photograph. Here are some of the faces in the crowd. Enjoy!

Children’s Revolution Day Celebration

Friday was the children’s Revolution Day celebration in San Miguel de Allende. The kids got dressed up in their best revolution outfits and paraded into the El Jardin. There was a caballero with his pony for the kids to sit on and have their photos taken by their parents and me. These are some of my favorite photos from the morning. Monday is the official holiday and I hope to get some photos of the adults. Enjoy!

I’ve Been Lazy

I’ve been a bit lazy lately and haven’t really gone out for more photos. Bill and I have been busy with moving and getting adjusted to life in Mexico. So I decided to go back through some of my photos and re-post some of  my favorite photos from over the years. I hope to get back out on the streets soon for more photos. Enjoy!

Charco Del Ingenio

Kathy, ReAnn and I visited Charco Del Ingenio (botanical gardens) yesterday. I thought we might see a lot of flowers, but the blooming season has past. What we did find were all kinds of unusual critters. I have no idea what kind of bugs these are, but I’ve never seem them in the states. The gardens are located above town and it was a nice way to spend the morning. Enjoy!

Bronce a la cera perdida

There is a new (to me) art installation adjacent to the El Jardin. It’s a large bronze statue of an angel in a boat. It is very cool! Here are a few photos of the angel, the parroquia (church) and a wonderful trumpet man. Enjoy!

The Living Desert II

It’s been a warm weekend here in the desert, but I decided to head back out to the Living Desert to see how my favorite animals are doing. I managed to get a few nice photos. Enjoy!

The Living Desert

I decided to run out to the Living Desert in Palm Desert this morning to see what’s new. They’re doing a lot of construction that (I believe) will be ready in the fall. Anyway, it was toasty warm this morning so the animals weren’t too active, but I managed to get a couple of nice photos. Enjoy!
