Theme day: Favorite Part of Town

Plaza Mayor Fountain and Jacaranda tree by Rudy Girón

It’s been a while since AntiguaDailyPhoto participates in the Theme day of the City Daily Photo community; since the theme bright colors on August 1, 2010 to be exact. I could not pass up on this month theme though since they have orchestrated to show the favorite part of town from 123 cities around the world.

My favorite part of town is without a doubt the Plaza Mayor, better known as Parque Central as it is evident by simply browsing the Parks category. Most of the entries in the Park category were taken at the Main Plaza of La Antigua Guatemala. I enjoy spending time at the Plaza Mayor, just sitting on a bench watching the world go by or hearing the murmurs of the fountains. Also, I take pleasure in registering all the different colors from the ever blooming flowers and plants found in Parque Central. Furthermore, I can not find a better place to have my shoes shined while having a delicious ice cream from Sarita or Pops.

Since just a few days ago I shared with you an overview of Parque Central after the rain I knew I had to come up with a totally different perspective for my favorite part of town. I believe I have done a good job, if I may say so.

Can you describe what area of the park is shown above and from where was this picture taken?

    Nice picture, i believe it’s facing the north side of the park. Man, I miss my hometown! Hopefully, I get to go this summer n visit my sister n family. Love from LA.

    I am sure this is a view from the Plaza Mayor across 5a Calle towards the renovated arches of the Palacio de los Capitanes. The peach colour inset in the arch surround matches the picture you showed on 18/12/10. Also the metal railing and arch shape match. The fountain would be from the Plaza Mayor and the Jacaranda…well those are all over. I’m a bit suspicious that you managed to get the Palacio and the fountain so close to each other….is this a cloned atmospheric picture like you did on 29th June last year under Antigua Fragments? Either way; it’s a winner….evocative with all the elements that are attractive about Central Park!

    Thanks for the link for City Daily Photo. It is interesting to see the different perspectives of how many view their favorite part of their city.

    I can see why this is your favorite part of town! This is a lovely photo — one of the many here that remind me to take a deep breath, smell the Jacaranda, and remember what is really important in life.
