Heading Out To Work

Heading Out To Work by Rudy A. Girón

Living in La Antigua Guatemala is such a trip because you get to see and experience different eras and lifestyles all at once. Take for instance the vista of a campesino (small plot worker) with his horse heading out to work early in the morning to the rolling hills of Volcán de Agua and now imagine that just one hour later you can meet with friends for French crêpes or Bagels for a power breakfast, and meet a client at a sushi bar for lunch and assist to a baroque music recital at night. Of course you keep track of all of this with your iPhone 4S or Galaxy Nexus Android-powered phone while keeping an online photographic dairy in real time. That’s what I mean by the collapsing or co-existing of different eras and lifestyles.

Have you noticed those things in your visits to Antigua Guatemala?

    Great pic Rudy, it makes me want to follow the man up the mountain.Talk to him about his “cosecha” and see what he packed for lunch.
    California roll ?

    Collapsing or co-existing…It depends on the lens one chooses to see it through (pun intended) I say is the same era that has always existed, but with better pictures thanks to your talent and technology.

    • NYChapin, so did I, I wanted to follow the man to his milpa and hang all day with him, asking questions.

    This is soooooooo nice!
    I love the composition and colors, and I can nearly hear the sound of someone walking.
