Chichén Itzá

Chichén Itzá, a great historical Mayan pyramid located in the Yucatan State of Mexico.

I have been here many times, and it never disappoints. There is such incredible energy in this place. When you stand in front of the great pyramid of Chichén Itzá, close your eyes, and you can see and hear the Mayans that used to spend time here.

About the image: I wanted to create a magical moment that really described Mexico. I used a Mexican Mariachi hat and a Mexican traditional blanket around the model to make it easy for the viewer to see where the pyramid was located.

Camera settings: 1/125 F11 ISO 100  Edited with my Lightroom Presets.

La Quinta Gameros an Architectural Masterpiece

La Quinta Gameros

On my last trip to Chihuahua Mexico, the place I was born, I ended up visiting La Quinta Gameros. I have not been to this place since I was a kid, it brought up lots of memories and I saw it from a different perspective.

La Quinta Gamers is an incredible mansion in Chihuahua Chihuahua Mexico, the architecture is mind-blowing on many levels. It currently houses the Centro Cultural Universitario Quinta Gameros, a regional museum.

The guides say that Manuel Gameros started building Quinta Gameros in 1907 as a wedding present for his fiancée, Elisa Muller. By the time it was finished in 1910, she had died, and soon afterward the Revolution began, and the Gameros family fled to the United States.

Here is a photo I shot a long time ago in Chihuahua Mexico. (thats where I’m from) My sister and I were walking to the cathedral when I spotted this kids, the boy was playing this beautiful songs and the little girl was asking for money. I got on my knees and snapped 2 shots at a slow shutter speed, I wanted to capture the busy world around them…

Sunset on the Eco Cat

I took this photo last year while vising Cabo San Lucas Mexico, I just love the ocean and cant get enough of it. I was walking around at the marina and this little kid asked me if I wanted to go an a boat ride to see the rocks, I said sure. He charged me one dollar and took me to see the rocks we hang out for about an hour, best dollar I have ever spent.
