Doing so much iPhone and digital photography I want to go back to analog film. Taking 36 photos and waiting for the development reminds me of what I first enjoyed about photography–the anticipation and surprise.

Mexico

Acapulco, Mexico – Old Town Acapulco with prostitutes talking in doorways, chopped chickens hanging from wires, old men without teeth. This is far from the resort, mostly in atmosphere and smell. The market looks the same as any open air market anywhere so no photos of the generic. Only color and the vendors and a blurry sun over a blurry resort.
