Relaxing the feline way.

Well it’s “caturday”, so I couldn’t help to share yet another image of one my two cats, this one taking a delicious nap is my beloved Fuzito, the older of the two, and the one that made an appearance next to my bicycle in the post of this past November 18. Since all that can be seen from him is his back and not at all his face, I believe the following image is a much better angle to introduce him to you. By the way, since in the US Thanksgiving was just celebrated I can surely say that sharing my life with this lovely cat and his little “brother” is really something I can be really thankful for!

I made this photo back in 2012 with my great Nikon D200 and a 50mm F1.8D Nikkor lens, a very nice combo which I enjoyed a lot taking along with me everywhere, and certainly used a lot at home too.

Keep on having a nice weekend!!

Probando el surfear. Trying surf.

A couple of kids defy the power of the waves as the sun goes lower at the Pacific coast of Guerrero, Mexico.

A couple of kids defy the power of the waves as the sun goes lower at the Pacific coast of Guerrero, Mexico.

In recent days temperatures are getting higher again, heat in the afternoons really wake up the desire for being at the beach. Here is an image I found from back in september 2008, a trip to Guerrero, Mexico celebrating my birthday. I spotted in the distance these two kids playfully having fun with the waves from the hotel’s room, and couldn’t resist photographing them with my Nikon D200 and a Nikkor telephoto, since they were not so close from where I was watching them.

Moldeando el Maíz en la Huasteca Potosina

Mano huasteca

Desde hace milenios el Maíz ha formado los cuerpos y las almas de los habitantes de éstas tierras que hoy se llaman México. En comunidades de la Huasteca Potosina se sigue cultivando el maíz para consumo familiar, traído desde las laderas de las montañas y hecho masa en las cocinas tradicionales, es un deleite al paladar acompañar la cocina local con tortillas recién hechas, humeantes, gruesas y suavecitas para hacer taco con salsa de molcajete, o simplemente con sal junto a un plato de mole, arroz o frijoles.

Waiting for Spring. Esperando a la Primavera.

Yellow petals on green

 

Tiempos de nostalgia y melancolía, el Sol se nos anda escondiendo, como si el mismo astro rey tuviera frío. A tener paciencia en lo que los amarillos, verdes y demás colores vuelven a llenar el campo con su alegría.

Casi no queda comida.

Almost no food left

 

Los pastos que surten de alimento a las poblaciones de saltamontes, tan abundantes en el tiempo de lluvias, han empezado a desaparecer en el otoño por su mismo consumo y por la disminución en la frecuencia y abundancia de las precipitaciones. Los saltamontes que nacieron por millones ahora ya no se ven tanto en el monte.

Sobrepoblado – Overpopulated.

En ésta época del año en las cercanías de donde vivo, la abundancia de lluvias llena los campos de multitud de flores silvestres.

At this time of year next to where I live, abundant rain fills the fields of a myriad of wildflowers.

Rain is finally here, the creatures were thirsty.

Proper summer showers got late this year where I live, in Mexico City’s suburbs. Luckily rain is falling almost every day now.cropped-droplets-of-the-summers-solstice.jpgNow, little droplets of Summer refresh the thirsty land and its creatures.

Explorando la Luz – Exploring the Light

A partir de hoy estaré posteando imágenes resultado de mis experiencias fotográficas, nacidas de mi imparable deseo de apretar el disparador de la cámara mientras exploro las delicadezas de la luz, la forma, el color, la textura o la composición, o mejor dicho, una mezcla de todas ellas. En ciertos casos escribiré acerca de las ideas o los sentimientos que me vinieron a la mente a la hora de hacer la imagen o bien, lo que me inspire a posteriori. Espero las disfruten, y por favor, díganme su opinion en la sección de comentarios.

From now on I’ll be posting images resulting from my photographic experiences, born from my never ending desire of pressing the camera shutter button while exploring the nuances of light, form, color, texture or composition, or better yet, a mixture of all of them. In some cases I’ll write about the ideas or feelings that came into mind at the time of making the image or instead, whatever the photograph inspires me afterwards. Hope you enjoy, and please, tell me what you think about in the comments section.

Otoño perenne
