Colorful Guanajuato

Kyle and I are back in Guanajuato, Mexico for our little winter warm up.


And I have to admit, our entry has been a little tougher this year. Not only because we are missing our friends Cheri and Allen desperately, but also because we both arrived with expectations this year. Both of us have pretty serious amounts of work that we would like to accomplish while we are here. I am shooting a new series for photo-gravure to be displayed at the Perlow-Stevens Gallery this summer, and Kyle has a lot of work to do on his pedal-steel guitar.

And isn’t it precisely these moments when life has a way of throwing a wrench in the system?

The BEAUTIFUL house we have rented with enough room for us to do our work and host friends comes complete with a jackhammering construction site right next door. So having spent the better part of the week either trying to find other housing arrangements or negotiate the hours and length of time that might be appropriate for rattling our teeth, I have just now picked up my camera. Better late than never, right?

And, same as last year, I need to get my eyes focused to the density that is Guanajuato before I can actually begin seeing. So I decided to begin with the same “Yellow Assignment” from last year and see how this year would be different. (besides shooting on one of the only cloudy days!)

What color should I do next?

    Sorry about the construction next door! I vote for blue next.

    Beautiful shots of Guanajuato! It’s a photographer’s dream….
    And I vote for pink next. There are lots of shades of it in Guanajuato–buildings, bougainvillea, etc.
