Mexico - Guanajuato by lux69aeterna Mexico - Guanajuato by lux69aeterna
The city of Guanajuato in Mexico came to me as a pleasant surprise! Small pedestrian streets, going up and down at a height of 2000m, busy roads underground, colourful and well maintained architecture... And not to forget: the "Enchiladas mineras" of Doña Lupe! Guanajuato counts about 180 000 inhabitants and is/was famous for its silver mines. For 250 years it has, and is still extracted in the mines around the city. "La Valenciana", the most famous one used to be accounted for 2/3 of the worlds' production.

The are various points of views up the hills around the city, and even after being up four times in three days, the first visit was one of the bests with more interesting clouds in the sky to create more contrast. As well as a part of the city being lit up by the undergoing sun. I very much like the three dimensions of the photograph: foreground, middle ground and background. Hoping you like it as much as i do!

Exif: 29mm, 1/20, F9, ISO 100

Echt mooi hoe de foto de opbouw van de stad toont en met die belichting is die diversiteit in de stad nog sterker benadrukt. Mooie foto. Kan er blijven naar kijken.

Dank je Elsie, ben je daar al geweest? 

Ik denk dat ik 4-5 keer naar boven ben gewandeld om foto's van die "mirador" te maken... Er is zeker nog één andere die mooi is, maar ik laad die misschien ooit op :)

Neen, hier ben ik nog nooit geweest No, I disagree!. Misschien zal ik er ooit eens naartoe gaan, maar nog zoveel mooie plaatsen te zien en dingen te doen. :) (Smile) 

Eerste op mijn lijstje is nu trouwens Cambodja, dat ik zonder iets te boeken, wil verkennen. Maar dat is pas voor het voorjaar. I think I've fainted.

Cambodja is echt de moeite... Hmmm, als ik eraan terugdenk krijg ik maagpijn van het missen van al de mensen daar... Je zal het zeker leuk vinden! :)

Dat is altijd al een van mijn droombestemmingen geweest. En ik wil echt alleen het vliegtuigticket boeken, en de rest gewoon al gaandeweg het verkennen, de mensen, het land. Het is mijn afstudeercadeautje, zo beschouw ik toch. :) (Smile)
