Trompo is the Spanish word for spinning top. Here you can see the Guatemalan wooden handicraft version and one of them at full spin. Some of you who have been following the photos at this site might remember these arches from the Book Fair in Antigua, back in July 22nd, 2006. Also, there is a great perspective of the hallway and the arches back in May 1st, 2006. If you came recently, please take a look at the two photos from linked. Furthermore, you can see many of the arches around Antigua Guatemala by browsing the Arches category.
Photobloggies 2007 Award Finalist Side Note:
Yesterday, before shutting down I found a link to the 2007 Photobloggies Award in the referrer logs and today Karine and Santy made references to it, so I decided to take a look at it. Surprise, surprise, Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo is among the finalists for the Best of Latin American Photoblog even though I was not even aware it was nominated. I was happy to see AGDP and several others like San Francisco DP, Trujillo DP, Sochi DP, my friends Edwin’s Kuala Lumpur DP, Lisi’s Hong Kong DP, Santy’s Jakarta DP, Nathalie from Sydney Daily Snap, Beirut DP, Dubai DP and Accra DP. Good luck to all of you. I don’t really think AGDP has a chance since it’s competing against photoblogs from “real and professional” photographers. However, it is a great honor to be among the finalists. Do you know who nominated so many of the Daily Photo Blogs?
