IMG_4976San Miguel de Allende is a very festive town. We were told that there were literally hundreds of weddings there every month and lots of festivals and celebrations. On this day we came across a parade in the remembrance of when this area was recognized as city. Each neighborhood had their own marketing band and in some cases, as here, costumed participants.

IMG_4708On the streets of San Miguel de Allende, I would come across scenes that may he hard for some not to ignore. Int his case, a mother selling trinkets and snacks while her daughter is asleep at he side. The local officials try to discourage this and the tourists walk across the street. I am an old softy from way back help if I can.

IMG_5205While walking the back streets of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico we came across so many ladies who were selling a variety of goods and in this case, fresh flowers. Normally, I would have converted this to black and white but because of the rich colors in the building and the flowers, I decided it needed to stay as is.

IMG_4815While redoing my Zenfolio site, I found a folder of some of my photos of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico from our trip last spring that I had forgotten about. I continues to amaze me how  easy it is to bring out the striking colors with little effort. This little town reminded so much of Tuscany because ever time I turned a corner, there seemed to be a photo opportunity.
