One Week from Today

One week from today, we'll be here: San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We've rented a rather large casita near the center of town, somewhere close to that big pink cathedral (the Parroquia) you can see in the photo. Rick's mom is joining us. Can't wait! If you remember, we were scheduled for this trip last October when Alex got sick and we had to cancel. Thankfully the owners of the house let us keep the half of the deposit we had already paid and the airline extended our frequent flyer miles so we didn't lose any money. 

When I tell people we are going to Mexico they always assume we are going somewhere with water. When I tell them that we are nowhere near any water, they frown. Why go to Mexico if not for the beach? Because. Because San Miguel is magical. Because San Miguel is historical. Because San Miguel is one mile high. Because the food is wonderful since many top chefs choose to live here. 

Below is my favorite photo that I took when I was last there. Rick doesn't like it as much as I do because he wishes I had used a deeper depth of field. I like it the way it is because it focuses on the woman with her orange bucket. To tell you truth, I didn't even know that gentleman was across the street when I took the photo because I was so focused on her. So, how about you? Do you like the shallow depth of field or would you have preferred to see the gentleman in full focus as well?

I like the photo just the way it is.

I love this photo because it focuses on the lady with the orange pail, but you see this guy across the street and wonder who he is…do they know each other?  What is their story? Thought provoking, for sure!

Awww ... hubby ... wink

Bigsis, I like your story!

That looks like it will be a great trip! I actually like the shallow depth of field. I think having the guy a bit blurry lends him a mysterious air: Is he looking at the woman, or at us? What’s his expression? It makes you think!

Hey Steve, you would have a real field day walking around San Miguel with your camera! It’s a great place for photography. I am going to try and do it justice. I hope.
