Guatemala September 2012

Not feeling much like writing these days. I'm doing the facebook thing which satisfies me in 50 words or less from time to time. I just thought I would share photos from a trip to Guatemala in September 2012.
Night time view from the park.

A view thru a hole in the wall

The buildings are straight, its the streets that are crooked

A new vine on an old wall

This church reminds me of a wedding cake

This plant reminds me of a dread wig and I love the hanging orchids. At least I think they are orchids.

Antigua, 4 guys on the street

I love to see the character in this woman's face. What a life she must have lived, and the stories she can tell.

Saying goodbye to Lake Atitlan on my last full day before returning to Belize.


A look inside, from the street to an inner courtyard

 And now for the music portion of the blog...
I think this video was shot in Argentina

Love this photo shot in the late afternoon in Antigua. I love long shadows.

Stunning, indeed. The details, the details...I love!

I was saving these for this morning, when I take a break from sewing. I'm listening to the music while I *travel* via your photos.
