Entire families taking such pride in their work. This is one of the magis.
The here and now... and what and why
First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Faces from La Noche del Rabanos
Because I get there so early, I miss the finished works, but get to see the pieces being assembled, the the people behind each. It's a trade off I happily make because I love seeing artists in the alpha state. As one, I know there is nothing like being in that moment, the energy, the excitement, the unknown, the realization of a dream, a vision. And it is some of the best people watching. Like this beauty with her radish calla lily.
