Mexico is not a place that you visit for 24 hours. To visit Mexico, you need to have time. Time to eat, time to explore, time to find your next shot. While visiting San Miguel de Allende, I saw a vibrant culture filled with artisan colonies, artist’s studios, thriving businesses, expats and incredible culinary delights. While there, I noticed that my photos connected me to symbols, connected me to architecture and materials of construction and to the beautiful shapes and forms of some of the native plants!
There is something very special about the Mexican culture. Perhaps is about capturing the traditional and the modern in one place. San Miguel was a place of discoveries. Here you can find beautiful colonial facades and stone colonnades, interwoven with modern construction details. From a photography point of view, San Miguel is a place that offers history and beauty to be captured. But the only thing that this city expects from you, the traveler, is to find that connection that will allow you to see that and so much more, such as the simple way of life that most people there enjoy living, true friendships, and the genuine kindness that the people of the Sun have…. But you have to have time.
