Traipsing around the colonial cities, mi amigo and I stumbled upon this vintage car…I was so enamored with the image I digitally painted it. My favorite part of photography – the discovery of some aspect that was hidden at the time, revealing itself when magnified as a print or onscreen…this one was the unintentional self-portrait in the front bumper!
This trip was during my self-titled “La Aventurera” phase – traveling through Mexico in a truck (NO – you didn’t! YES – I did!) down to San Miguel on a buying trip for my friend’s shop back in Corpus Christi. Oh the lovely treasures by artisanias we did find…but for me, this image was the best find by far.
