For the past two months I’ve been volunteering and doing some traveling through Mexico.
Usually, it would be more evident through various posts and pictures on the blogs, however, it’s pretty obvious that my blog as well as my newsletter have been suffering for over a month now.
I ran into and am dealing with some current electronic difficulties. I nearly lost my hard-drive and all of my pictures. (saved and repaired now) I still however am dealing with a keyboard that only has half of the keys working. Frustrating…very
Anyway, working on a functioning desktop now and will be catching up all week. If you want to know more about the trip I urge you to sign up to my newsletter on the right side of the page as I’ll be posting up some journal entries for subscribers to read and get to know more about what happens behind the blog.
If you’re already signed up, you’ll notice my entries are delayed and I’ll be catching up to now where I am back in Colorado.
Until then, I’m going to share some pictures to give a brief glimpse of what future posts hold!
If you’re on pinterest and enjoy any of these pictures just hover over the image with your mouse and a ‘Pin It’ button should appear ; )
This one is part of set of experimental photos I was taking for a rock band named Revolver in Veracruz, Mexico. What do you think?
That same night I was taking photos of the band I did some photography work for the bar/restaurant/venue where they were performing.
A block from the hostel that I was volunteering at was Latin America’s largest aquarium. Nothing too impressive compared to ones that I have been to, but still fun and they had this curious Toucan there too.
A couple of kilometers away sits the old Spanish Fortress of San Juan de Ulua. These set of doors are within the fortress. The entire place was built from the surrounding coral giving it a unique look and texture.
One weekend I took a bus north a few hours to the town of Papantla where the El Tajin Ruins reside. These are some old carvings still visible today. A large majority of these ruins are still uncovered and being excavated.
After a month in Veracruz I moved on to Tulum. The lush jungles housed a ridiculous amount of animals. One of my first mornings this colorful caterpillar was walking around outside my door. Vibrant colors warn predators to not eat them. (you can hold them though)
On the same property are a couple of different cenotes (natural sinkholes). This image is from within the caves of one of the cenotes on the property. At the back right you can see more light and that is one of the entry points where people drop in. Afterwards people swim towards where my camera was and a larger opening allows people to swim more or make their way out of the water.
One of my favorite images that I’ve ever taken, this is of a blue-eyed spider monkey that is living at the Tulum Monkey Sanctuary. I had just given him some hibiscus and he ended up sticking around for a bit as I snapped some shots.
A lot of different stuff has happened the past couple of months! If you haven’t already, check out my facebook page as I tend to keep that more up to date with images and info.
Also, make sure to sign up for my newsletter to get more personal accounts of my travels and other random travel information! More posts and pictures coming to the blog soon!
