Thanks for all your comments. When I took this image people were constantly walking in front of me because it was right at the entrance to a sandwich shop. One guy stopped and watched me for a minute and then asked "What are you taking a picture of?" I wish I had gotten his name and address. I pointed the place out later to my wife and she didn't see the possibilities either. Sometimes you just have to go with your vision. Others will understand it when you get the film back. #1280787

This is a great photo Clark, just beautifully designed and the colors are incredible. I've have had friends who live in San Miguel and loved it. Did you find it to be a friendly place to visit? Where else in Mexico would you find such great colors on a building? Great shot. jeff #1310121
