Moment#7–Dos Sombreros

Last week Dale Schmitt and I opened our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.

This image was taken in 2014 on a beach near Tulum Mexico and is another example of the misdirection I use to tell a story.

Candidate #20—Dos Sombreros

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of new images of only digital photography. Right now I am focusing on images that are photojournalistic in nature. This image was taken at a beach in Quinatana Roo near Tulum Mexico during the winter of 2015. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

La Playa Paraiso

After visiting Tulum, we went to a lovely beach on the Riviera Maya called La Playa Parariso. The sand was pure white and the reef that runs for 70 miles along the coast offers gentle waves and warm waters. There was a nice little beach club offering drinks and traditional Mexican fare. I can’t wait to go back.

Los Sombreros

I was sitting at La Playa Paraiso after a swim with my lady and looking to the sky for pelicans when I noticed this scene. A man taking a picture of his bathing beauty lady was enough to attract my attention. However, I had been observing the young man in the hat holding court under the palm tree for some time. I liked the juxtaposition of the two hats and took the picture. It wasn’t until I saw it on my 27″ display that I noticed the pat on the tush.

Long Boarding

I have observed people do this in Maui, Cancun and Florida. This young lady made it look easy but in my heart I know it’s not and requires something I have always had in short supply. No not guts, but balance has never been my strong suit.

Bird Watching

I have always been fascinated by watching male behavior around women. Unlike me, most men will not glance at an attractive woman if there is any chance they will be caught ogling. They will suck in their guts until they pass out but not venture a glance. I on the other hand just don’t give a damn.
