This week I begin a new series of images I recently shot at the premier of the Otomi Grand Prix. A magnificent event of Equestrian Horse Show Jumping In San Miguel de Allende.
I hope you enjoy my photographic journey.
Each day we will explore the world of the Equestrian jumpers, their powerful horses, sturdy tack and snappy style.
In the small, rural community of Atotonilco, the afternoon’s quiet receding sun casts its faith onto the rich Mexican Baroque mural work of the Chapel of the Holy Burial in the Sanctuary of Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site just outside the town of San Miguel de Allende.
Dusk settles in on De La Parroquia de San Pedro Apostol, the 400 year old main church in Mineral de Pozos.
The magical abandoned silver mining town of Pozos, with its uncommon beauty in the high chapparral desert of Central Mexico, is experiencing a large resurgence of interest, particularly as an art and artisan’s community.
Every night, Mariachi musicians patiently wait in San Miguel de Allende’s Jardin for visitors and residents to ask them to play Mexican folk music full of passion and excitement. Then, the dancing, weaving and singing begins.
Mariachi music is Mexico’s best known form of folk music.
