Man strides through the heavy rain and wind this afternoon.
Seen during a nightly stroll to let loose of the stressors that gang up during the day.
More shooting on the way home; in the passenger seat of course.
Seen on Cafetales Ave. --Del. Coyoacan-- on my way to work one morning.
Seen on a very, very rainy afternoon in Coyoacán, Mexico City.
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.

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.
The skull is used as a container by the garbage guys. They take your garbage; you drop some pesitos in honor of them doing so.

The rain continues. Haven't seen as rainy a season as the one we are experiencing now. I could swear it's been weeks since I've experienced a full day of sunshine.
For me, places are defined by the people that inhabit them, not the other way around.

Drive by shooting, which I don't recommend and involves more luck than anything else.
I was a graffiti buff in the early 80s in New York and was part of a small crew until a close call with the law. In Puerto Rico --in 84-- I was blamed for starting a firestorm in an urban art I look back on and feel I sucked very much at. My views about it have matured with feelings about where it belongs and does not, but I enjoy seeing the forms into which it has evolved in recent decades. Here is a taste of what you can find in Mexico City. This one was seen in Coyoacán.
Spent a few hours in the bohemian section of the city called Coyoacán. It's only ten minutes from where I live and enjoy taking Sunday breaks in what Hernando de Cortez once wanted to crown the capital of New Spain.

I simply enjoyed the mix of light, clouds, and shadows. Lens set at 15mm on a mini tripod. Wish I had composed better, though.
Expression of political and social issues through urban art of this nature is not uncommon in Mexico.
