AntiguaDailyPhoto Turns 6-year Old

Santa Clara's Bakery in Antigua Guatemala by Rudy Girón

Today AntiguaDailyPhoto.com is celebrating its sixth anniversary. Also, the CityDailyPhoto community around the world is having the monthly theme day which is Bakeries. As many of you know, I try to participate as often as I can on the monthly theme days. The picture above was taken at the Santa Clara bakery, just south of the Santa Clara convent ruins. The Panadería Santa Clara has some of the best bread available in Antigua Guatemala.

Feed me, the letter slot says!

TragaletrasThe first time I requested post cards was an experiment entitled Postscript; a test we ran back in 2007 when we wanted to test how efficient was the regular Guatemalan Postal Service.

We were delighted by the kind words and to see postal stamps from many cities and countries. So, if you appreciate the work we do at AntiguaDailyPhoto and want to show it or simply participate in testing the snail mail system AGAIN, please, send a post card or letter from wherever you find yourself now to the address below:

For the sixth anniversary (2192 consecutive daily updates) I am happy to report that the AntiguaDailyPhoto concept continues expanding in Quetzaltenago, the city in the highlands (Los Altos we call it), with its XelaDailyPhoto and to Guatemala City and the rest of the country with GuatemalaDailyPhoto. To me there is no greater satisfaction than to be able to share with others, to lend a hand and to provide all the interesting information I come across. Of course, none of it would be possible without the support from my wife, family and friends. A big THANK YOU for all their and your support!

      Thanks SJBJ for your support and feedback through the years. I really really like receiving post cards and mail. I wish more people would send post cards more often, especially in these days of immediate satisfaction, post cards and hand written letters are such a gift.

    Happy Birthday, Rudy & ADP!

    Unlike most birthdays, which represent living for just one more year, THIS birthday means another 365 days of artistic growth, achievement, learning and sharing. ADP is an intrinsic part of my daily routine and through it, I can enjoy and visit La Antigua any time I like and in my mind, I am there!

    Thanks Rudy, sincere congratulations to you and your ever expanding team of friends and collaborators. LAG needs you!

      Gracias Canche for providing very interesting and hard to find information to enhance the experience of the daily photo. I really appreciate all your feedback.

    Felicidades y en hora buena…..
    Thanks to the ADP I feel that I have strengthened my ties to not just Antigua, but all of Guate ! I specifically enjoy your coverage  of cultural events around Antigua and other parts of the country. As a result, I have been able to connect and enjoy different Guatemala happenings here in the Big Apple. Por ejemplo, I have seen Gaby Moreno in concert and met the director and filmmakers of Casa Comal. I have seen most of the movies you’ve highlighted and of course enjoyed all of the great new music coming out of Guate !

    Salud !

      Thanks NYChapin for your punctual commentary and feedback. Often times I believe your comments make better captions for my photos. We should experiment and see how that works. Ready for it?

      • NYChapin

        Wow !! that sounds awesome Rudy… 
        Yes, just let me know.

    Rudy,
    Congrats! Thank you so much for the images and the little tidbits that you provide us! I am sure there is not a better source for how life is “lived” in Antigua. You provide amazing pics and cometary on all aspects of the charming city.

    Felicitaciones, Rudy!  Perdoname por no escribir mas pronto; estoy en la ultima semana de clases, antes de graduarme.  Tengo examenes o ensayos para escribir todos los dias entre ahora y el miercoles que viene!  Pero quise contarle ‘Felicidades!’, me encanta este websitio, y la proxima vez que estoy en La Antigua, sere ‘Licenciado Eric’, ja-ja-ja!!
    Y, esta foto me da muerte de hambre.  Mmmmmm!

      Felicitaciones Eric, now I can count among my friends a Harvard graduate. Boy, I am moving up in the world. I set a six pack of Mozas in the fridge to celebrate your graduation Licenciado Eric.
