Sometimes it seems as though the saturation of colors is more intense in México. The houses, buildings, and graphic design are all bold with rich colors. I am still not sure why it has a picture of Spiderman while the text says Flash Gordon, but maybe that was the only graphic they could find.Close-up of posters on a wall

They will stop for virtually anyone and anything... including people carrying their animals/dinner with them. After talking with the gentleman in the photo for a few minutes, we learned that he was a professional musician on his way to a gig. He immediately pulled out his guitar and started jamming solo. This prompted the entire bus (including some Italian tourists) to start singing, clapping, and laughing. Even the bus driver was singing along! It was good fun and I swore never to take a first-class (gringo) bus the next time I was in Mexico.

Obviously, this dog was not used to a loud PA system, music, and people yelling and cheering outside it's perfect little world...which the sign clearly skews. Unless there is also a 230lb K-9 in that house, there is certainly no reason to "Beware of [the] Dog".

Called a 'callejero' or street dog, this public square was probably it's home. There were at least 10 other such dogs in the plaza. They don't bother anyone and the keep the streets clean, so I suppose the government doesn't bother that much.

This lone wolf was busy chasing this one pigeon -- who never had the simple idea to just fly away to another park -- for at least 20 minutes.

You still can see, however, the reflection of the grass on the shiny surface.

6/17/2004Canine Free AgentReserva Nacional de Paracas, Perúblack & whiteDogs like this are a typical sight throughout all of the countries in Latin America that I have visited: skinny and hungry. What was peculiar about this one, however, is that it chased me and barked until I took out my camera. Then it sat down immediately and posed. Apparently it has seen a camera before.

6/18/2004CandelabroReserva Nacional de Paracas, Perúblack & whiteI swear this was created by a group of enterprising Peruvians who knew that tourists would flock from everywhere to see this sight. Explanations abound, but I'm going to stick my business instincts. Like the lines of Nazca, if you want a really good view, try an online search. It was very cloudy, and I'm not too happy with the results.

6/18/2004Guano MakersReserva Nacional de Paracas, Perúblack & whiteEach bird produces 1 meter of guano (bird crap) per year. The guano is bagged by workers and then sold as a high-powered fertilizer - one of the best in the world. The collection and sale of guano put Peru on the map of global trade. Since then mob families have run the islands, effectively making a major business from bird excrement.

6/18/2004Flock of Guano BombardiersReserva Nacional de Paracas, Perúblack & whiteLoaded with fresh of guano readied for launch, these birds hovered hauntingly above us almost the entire trip. Only one passenger got nailed. There are literally tens of thousands of these birds on these islands. They eat fish, sleep on the rocks, and never come to mainland. A boring life if you ask me, but they have been doing it for thousands of years, so I guess they like it.

6/18/2004Lone Guano Bombardier Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perúblack & whiteScouting the horizon, this bird had only the foulest of intentions. I'm sure that even as I took this picture, he was eyeing me and putting in a request for cargo drop on my boat.

Although the owners of these 'crap factories' sell each bag of guano for more than US$70, they are obviously keeping their overhead costs low.

Additionally, when I shot this image I got on the floor and made sure that my camera was in the exact center by aligning it with the circle inlaid in the marble surface.

Usually, the photographic process doesn't do much justice to rich textures, but this shot had everything I was looking for. The natural light streaming in the open door wasn't too bright and gave good balance to the image.
