Carl and I were walking down one of the less crowded streets in Algadones, Mexico when I spied this man who apparently makes and repairs handbags and other leather goods.  He wanted to know if I needed any repairs, which I did not. I asked if I could take his photo and he said for $1.  Unfortunately I didn’t have any dollar bills on me. (Next time I will!)  But he said I could take his picture anyway.  I got lucky that the one and only came out this well.  I ran it through Topaz Detail – Creative Detail settings, and used the blur fixer.

  1. Interesting to see photos of life in Mexico other than the tourist resorts

  2. What a cool capture..loving all the details in this, every time I look at it I see something new!

  3. Love the processing on this street scene.

  4. I’m not sure how I’d respond if someone told me it would cost me $1 to take their photo… did you expect him to say that or is this how they do business down Mexico way?

  5. Women’s Eyes – Men’s Eyes! I would call this Fantastic Leather Jerkins! LOL
