Some people complain about the rains. I used to be like that; I couldn’t wait for the rainy season to be over to come out of photographic hibernation and start shooting again. Silly me, the rainy season has its own beauty; it’s own aesthetic. You have to open your mind to the possibilities. For instance, you want to take a clean picture of the Fuente de las Sirenas, the mermaids fountain on Parque Central, but there is alway too many people around it. Simple, wait for a rain for the main square to clear up of all those humans distractions. This is exactly what I did last night, well late after noon to be precise, and with the help of a tripod and a 30-second exposure I was able to get rid of even those people who walked around the park. What do you think? Not bad for a photograph captured at 7pm, right?
Did you know that the official name for Antigua Guatemala’s parque central is actually Plaza Mayor?
