The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

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.
Time passed.
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.

"I just want a little ceremony, nothing too fancy"

I went into the city to check things out.... things were normal, the zocalo still free of vendors and full of people having a good time..... and ran across this wedding coming out of Santo Dominogo. 
Just a typical little boda....
with dancers, a band and a parade.  No, this was the real thing, as only in Oaxaca.
First rule of wedding photography:  The bride must look good.
 Photo op.
 A kiss... and then it was off to parade through the streets.
This was an hour later..... "Whew, I gotta get outta these shoes and into my Chucks."
