San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. A bestiary in monochrome.
Hey amigas, the circus is in town!
Let’s go, porky: first it’s off to the market, then to the vet’s to get that bandage off your ear…
A huge, brown, plastic sheep on a sidewalk i can perfectly understand, but why is that photographer pointing his camera this way?
Church’s front yard, obviously.
The scarf? It’s cold out here on the streets all day…
Let’s see… one horse, one pony, one camel. Ok, they’re all there. Now for a nap on my wheelbarrow…
Not all Mexican birds can fly…
…but most can and do…
All photos taken january 2013.
Hope you enjoyed.
Wow!!!! Great shots and the comments are fantastic!!!! Thanks, Alessandro, for sharing them!!! Any idea to make a book (or ebook) with your series?
Wow! Such enthusiasm. I hadn’t really thought about that yet, but i promise to put my mind to it, Santi. Thank you very much.
I’ve never seen this type of flightless Mexican bird. Very interesting.
I think it’s one-of-a-kind. Thanks!
You always bring a smile to my face. Wonderful again!
That, my friend, gives me great pleasure. Thank you.
Poor zebra, but they are all great photos. I think the pig is having a great life..
I’ll bet he is: life in plastic, it’s fantastic! 😉
My favourite is the lock. I have no idea why but I find doors, locks, handles etc fascinating – perhaps its the way so many age and weather into works of art in their own right. Wheelbarrow man is cool, too but why does it need 3 animals to keep an eye on him?
You have made me laugh ot loud – thanks, Andrew!
So much whimsy with your images, Alesandro. Like Andrew, I really appreciate the old lock photo – great texture with the grains of the old wooden door and engraved metal work!
Whimsy (looks it up…) – oh, i love that. Thank you very much, Tricia.
I am sorry for the zebra, and the other live creatures in this assortment–except for the bird that can come and go as it pleases. Still, a great walk through town.
Yeah, i’m not fond of circuses or zoos. That said, they do sometimes provide great photo opportunities. Thank you very much.
I agree with Santi – let us know when the book comes out!
