Themes From Mexico City
I am so happy to be back at home in San Diego. I have so many images from my photography weekend in Mexico City. Like about 800.
It’s so hard to pick and choose what images to post, what to post first, and also not to bore anyone to death who’s not a photography junkie. Or not into street food and outdoor markets. Of which I saw enough to kinda last me a good six months or so.
Here are some images that I like and that are representative of probably another 50 images that look similar to it and to what I saw over and over.
Tortillas & Tacos
This happens to be fried cheese in a tortilla.
I didn’t try any.
Fried Cheese at the market
Corn from street vendors cooked outside. Tons and tons of corn.
Fresh vegetables at the markets
And all of us smiling, sampling food, and making lots of pictures!

Penny & Me
It was the trip of a lifetime. I learned so much. Not only from Penny or about photography, but about myself.
I had some personal convictions about meat reinforced.
I saw lots of romance and PDAs.
I took a ridiculous number of photos.
I saw the beauty in the people, culture, history, and the historic city of Mexico City.
1. What’s a familiar theme in your life lately?
I know that I love making pictures and that I can do in San Diego what I did in Mexico City.
I need to set aside dedicated time and energy to taking photos and I need to keep challenging myself; giving myself photography assignments and pushing myself to grow, and just doing it.
2. What’s something that you need to challenge yourself with, push yourself with, or set aside dedicated time to just do?
For some people this is working out. For others, this is unplugging from technology, reading more, sleeping more, being more social, not wasting time, not spending money frivolously. We all have our “things” that we’re working on.
For me, I will be not only be working on my photography but will be working on moving into our new home on Wednesday. Omg my life is a whirlwind right now!
