capture 1718

We went to Algodones, Mexico a week ago Saturday.  It’s just over the border from Yuma, AZ. The main attraction is eye doctors and dentists and one can’t point a camera in any direction without seeing one or the other or both.   I like to shoot photos as I’m walking just to see what I capture — sometimes I see more in the photo than I noticed as a tourist.  I like this one the best of all that I took that day.  What do you think?


Alto means Stop – the man in the road is picking up pencils, but we don’t know if he dropped them or if someone else did.:

A lot of my captures feature Carl in them because I’m always stopping… and he keeps walking.

A man is trying to sell a tri-legged stool embossed with a football team logo to Carl.  Of course Carl wasn’t interested, but that doesn’t stop him (or any of the vendors) from trying hard.

Since it was my birthday weekend, I treated myself to a new sterling silver necklace.  It was too long and so he took a piece off…  and then offered to sell that section as a bracelet.  The necklace was $30 — he offered to sell it for $20 since he was making it shorter, then he sold me the bracelet for $10.  For the set, I thought that was good.
