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.
