The thing that was wrapped in this red plastic took someone to dare me to eat it for me to appreciate the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover", even more! It was incredible despite what i looked like! Buy some.
This Soccer Pitch was where I was headed when I shot the Staff Carpark one. Pretty amazing location right on the coast. Check out the massive Oceanliners in the background.
There were soccer pitches everywhere in Mexico, but I never saw anyone playing on them. This one was out the back of the hotel I was staying at next to the staff car park.
After I shot the portraits of the "Blanket" family, the dad ushered me over to a Bouganvillea bush to the side of the shed housing all the finished wares. He then started saying, "Modelo!, Modelo!", louder and louder each time to really get the message across. To go with the words he had some priceless moves. One hand behind his neck, chin up and the other hand proudly on his hip! Then he would swap hands and turn his head as he repeated, "Modelo!". I raised my camera to take a shot of him in front of the bush as I thought that's what he wanted but he scoffed and waved his hand in front of the lens. He grabbed me by the hand and pulled me over to the side of the rug weaving apparatus and pointed. Then it all became clear......
When he saw the penny drop in my mind, he crossed his arms and a wide smile covered his face.
I took a walk out the back of our hotel on one of the last days I was in Mexico and came across the staff carpark. I actually went to shoot the abandoned soccer pitch near by but found this car and Bouganvillea instead.
Best Moustache in town, hands down! Tano owns a jewellery store in Los Cabos. I spotted him on the street out front of his business enjoying the winter sun. After I shot his portrait he swiftly ushered me into his store to check out his wares....
