Once a day, during my writing breaks, I’ve been going through my Lightroom catalogue looking at old photos, especially the ones were had not made into my collections of 5 star images. It’s been fascinating to tease out some themes in my photography over the last few years.

There are a surprising number of photos dealing with people and perspective, what two planners and architects call the problem of human scale. having lived all my life in big, bustling cities, I’m fascinated by the way people move through urban spaces.

I made the image you see above on a sunny morning in Mexico. I wasn’t hiding behind bushes or around corners, like I saw some other photographers do that morning, but standing in plain sight, on the middle of wide sidewalk. All throughout Latin America you will find these kinds of imposing older town buildings that are like moments to national ambition.

A few days before I had the following photograph. Same region, same country, similar idea, similar mood, totally different architectural history.
