Mexico City

Viva, Mexico! - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Five years ago in Mexico city, Jose, in his sarcasm, described how only the modern development collapsed in the (infamous) 1985 earthquake, and all historical buildings stayed intact.  Back then, it was fun to laugh it off.  

Today, my heart wrenched at the sight of loss, fear and agony when the earthquake stroke central Mexico again, exactly 32 years from the last one.

I met this boy in the historical centro part of Mexico City.  I so wished that there will be no more separation nor loss due to natural or human-inflicted disasters.

A Movie Poster Made on the Street of Mexico City - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

"A scene is a scene.  But a scene with people comes alive", says yours truly. :-)

Did I tell you that a short walk from our hotel to the historical downtown in Mexico City and back was stretched into a whole (fun) day?  Yes, that's one of my strengths, in my own opinion. :-)  Think about it, for a kid that loves candies, wouldn't it be the best thing in the world if the candy lasts the whole day?

When visiting a place on foot, in addition to the monumental locations (sometimes skipped for subjective reasons), we check out the nooks and cracks with much joy.  And this is what we were greeted with, at the end of the day, on our way back to the hotel - four gentlemen sitting on the same bench, each doing their own thing.  What a fun "scenery"!  I exclaimed, in my heart, and secretly raised the camera to my face. :-)

Now, if you allow yourself to step back a little, it looks like a movie poster, doesn't it?  What would be the name of the movie, if that's the case?  You can totally make it up.  Why not have some fun!  

P.S. If you are curious, please follow the links for my other Mexico City Photography.  What's life without curiosity anyway? :p

Poverty in the Center of Prosperity in Mexico City - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

My eyes catch contrasts when I travel, local (yes, you read it right :-) ) or international.  Contrasts come in colors, shapes, or, in this case, the contrast of poverty vs. prosperity, right next to my hotel in downtown Mexico City.  What other contrasts do you see in this image?  Let us hear you in the comment area. :-)P.S.
