Mexicocityjune8

I am no photographer, I have no fancy camera, no eye for what the picture should be. I am never prepared to snap when I see the most wondrous things. And, worst of all, (usually) I am not graceful enough to be as surreptitious enough to capture anything that is paying attention. But I have been practicing. In the following snapshots of Mexico City, I caught a boy leaning out of his window. After the picture, he quickly darted back in. My photo of the woman disagreeing with the police caught no one’s attention. The lessons I am learning: It is easier to take pictures of things that don’t look back at me, to wait at landmarks for the real picture (the people orbiting it), and to be fast in the midst of a spectacle.
