Valladolid Door Panorama
Over Christmas, my wife and I spent time in the Yucatan region of Mexico. Specifically, Valladolid, Izamal, and Puerto Morelos. This is well-trodden territory for me at this point, so I wasn’t expecting to find a lot of new material to take photos of. Either way, it’s nice to go someplace sunny and warm. I really like Valladolid, and it had been about six years since my last visit. We stayed in a small house for a few days. We toured Ek-Balam, which I hadn’t seen yet. I did get out and take photos in Valladolid, and what attracted me most were the doors and facades. I tend to like the more weathered facades, with peeling paint and doors that appear to be hundreds of years old. I came back with quite a few of these, but I think this one is my favorite. I liked it so much, I printed a 3 foot long copy of it and framed it.
I’ll have more Valladolid photos coming, plus some photos from Izamal.
Wow, a big print of this one must be awesome. I like the bicycle and the contrast with the brightly painted door. Nice capture. Heading to Merida in a couple of weeks.
Merida is great — I’m jealous (it’s about 10 degrees F here today). Have a great trip!
