Dolores Hidalgo

Yesterday Bill and I took the girls, Juliet and Harlee, to Dolores Hidalgo. Dolores Hidalgo is considered a Pueblo Magico and a wonderful town about 40 minutes from San Miguel de Allende. We strolled around the centro and visited some of the gift shops. Bill met couple of Harley guys that were visiting the town from northern Mexico. After touring the park and shops we went to Vicente’s for some

Mexican Independence

Wednesday was Mexican Independence. San Miguel de Allende started off the holiday with a fireworks display Tuesday night. I went over to our friends Kathy and Michael’s house where we had a nice view of the Parroquia in centro from the rooftop.

Bill and I had to take the car in for service today and Queretaro has the closest dealership so while the car was being serviced we decided to stroll the downtown streets. It’s quite beautiful with parks, churches, restaurants and shops.

Morelia in HDR

I’m not a big fan of HDR as so often it looks over-baked, but when you’re bored at home it’s kind of fun to see what you can create using the HDR processing. Her are a few photos from our trip to Morelia that I processed as HDR images. Enjoy! P.S. While I was at I decided to swap out the skies using Skylum’s Luminar program. It does a pretty

Eternal San Miguel de Allende Book

My good friend, Ted Davis, recently published a book called Eternal San Miguel de Allende: Celebrating the Hidden Treasures of a Timeless Town. Ted is an extraordinary photographer with his gallery (Ted Davis Galería de Fotografía) on Zacateros. (Featured photo by Ted Davis) I had the pleasure and privilege to work with Ted on his book. It truly is the quintessential book of San Miguel de Allende. The are over
