Tiendita

The little store on Calle Vista Hermosa

Back home in New York my mother would send me to the "bodega" to get a galon of milk, which I had dropped on several occasions only to return with about half. Here in Mexico these "corner" stores are called "abarrotes"; in this image the proud --and very kind-- owners of one we affectionally call "La Tiendita" or the little store.

Swoosh

Microbus on the move in Mexico City.

The infamous means of transport in Mexico City in which seven individuals recently died due to the driver's reckless and totally irresponsible driving. The concession of the route involved was suspended but the hazard remains for the rest of the city. These buses are a prime example of what happens when public transport is conceded individually --without regard for the welfare of the users. It's only natural that public harm results as these buses speed and break transit laws to reach customers before their competition.

Spooked

Afraid of the lens.

A friend's pet who was very much afraid of me as I approached with the lens. The dog had been abused by prior owners --monsters-- that did not understand the difference between stewardship of life and lording over it; he's in very good hands now.

Against the stream

Lluvia en Coyoacan, D.F. Mexico City.

Nothing usual about the amount of rain this year. Sadly, little is done to capture it and put it to good use in a region of the country that's suffering from an unrelenting depletion of the precious stuff.

...well, at leat a dark night of rain, and more rain.
