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.

Tlacolula Faces

One of the best markets to visit any day of the week is the one is Tlacolula, but Sunday is Market Day and the place is bustling with vendors and action.  The different dialects one hears in passing and the variety in people's clothing, especially the women, are always interesting.

It was hot, so people were getting their ice cream cones.

A family affair.

I love the faces of these women.How did you get these photos without having brussel sprouts thrown at you? When I have tried, they scream, they turn their heads. I would like to know your secret.

I have a little point and shoot that I keep a hip level and shoot clandestinely. I practice this all the time and get maybe one out of ten decent shots.
