On our morning stroll to breakfast within San Miguel de Allende‘s “Centro”, this stand of large paper flowers for sale appeared at the (northwest) corner of Calle Canal and Calle del Dr. Ignacio Hernández Macías. It’s almost picture-perfect, but it’s no surprise I’m recalling a similar motif by renowned photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson at a Japanese funeral in 1965.
In 2008, UNESCO recognized the town as World Heritage Site, which is about three to four hours (one-way) with bus or car from México City. A larger gallery with my photographs of the town is available here.
I made the photo with the Canon 450D and 18-55 IS kit-lens on 4 March 2012 during my year-long RTW. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8BG.
