While looking at this typical vista from La Antigua Guatemala, it occurred to me that we are unos mirones, it is sort of like voyeurs minus the sexual connotation, but a little more than observers. I take the shots and you are my accomplices in this venture. We enjoy the captures of the normal street life scenes from La Antigua Guatemala. We are some mirones; I do it behind the viewfinder and you do it in front of your monitor, thousands of miles away.
Anyhow, I really like the rhythm of the image above. I like all the different actions of the people, almost totally unaware of the camera. Honestly, I am very happy with this particular photograph. I feel it captures, very well, the essence of an usual street scene in La Antigua Guatemala. For those of you who have visited this colonial town, what is your opinion of this photograph?
