THE DISCOVERY OF CHICHEN ITZA

(((~~ MAN MADE~~)))


Image I took yesterday from Chichen Itza, converted to B/W then added sepia tone to have the aged look.

The tourist on the left lower side of the image, adds a nostalgic touch as if he/she just stumbled to this magnificent ruins, and the clothes looks like from the late 18th and early 19th century archeologist would wear.

Wonderful b&w work, Dominick. Yes, it looks like you captured a moment in time with that "explorer." It's amazing that you managed only ONE tourist in the photo. I was at Tulum in April, and it was next to impossible to get a shot without a crowd.
