In the market place of San Cristobal de las Casas.
From our travels in Mexico
As we walked the small corridors between the vendors in this outdoor market I got a glimpse of this beautiful set of eyes staring at me. Quicker than you can say “howdy” the shutter button was pressed. I love this type of image where only fast instinctive reflexes will get you the photograph. Only after I really contemplated the image on my laptop did I truly appreciated what I captured. It is one of my favorites from the many trips to Mexico that we made.
This is the typical way they carry babies in Chiapas, Mexico. You will only find a hand full of baby strollers, it’s all constant contact with the mother or other female family member. It is the indigenous way of childcare.
