I always wanted to have a motor boat. One that you could cruise in at sunset across a calm bay or gulf. People have told me that a boat is like having a hole in the water that you throw your money into. Maybe I will rent one instead.

I love going shopping in supermarkets in Mexico. It’s so similar and yet so different. You see different cuts of meat and different types of produce. Even the groceries are different and I have never seen so many different types of yogurt. I have never seen sugar cane available in a US Market, even in Florida. Maybe I just wasn’t looking.
We sat having lunch at Tacos and Tequila on the Blue Dock in Cancun enjoying tostadas and beer. The taco bowl that contained the fresh made guacamole was amazingly fresh and then I noticed the reason why. She could make these without looking and was positioned right in the front of the restaurant so people walking by could observe her skill. She was quiet and focused as she looked at the tourists walking by and every 30 to 45 seconds made another fresh taco shell.
I am starting to toy with the concept of doing more exhibition photography after we relocate. During the 1970’s I worked as a photojournalist in Pittsburgh and displayed some work in museum shows including the Carnegie Museum. I stopped working in the field when I became involved in printing and publication. I retired early so I could pick up Photography again and began doing photojournalism although this time without assignments. I am looking for work that Henri Cartier-Bresson would like.
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 Photojournalism. This one was taken in Cancnún at Sunset near the Blue Dock. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.
