First Steps

First Steps

I love the possibilities of street photography in La Antigua Guatemala. Almost every day you can go out and come back with good material if you keep your eyes wide open, your mind without filters and your finger ready on the shutter button.

How often you can capture the first steps of a baby, really? I call it luck, pure luck. I am big believer in chance, chaos and randomness; synchronicity and serendipity are probably better terms. What do you think, am I lucky or what?

Primeros pasos Home safe

Ephemerides Aside: Today was the first day of Posadas in La Antigua Guatemala. I have 8 more chances to take some photos of posadas before Christmas. Are you interested in seeing photos of posadas and learning about this important Guatemalan tradition?
