Let’s Take A Break

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Sitting back, relax and just think in Palacio Nacional is an acquired taste, I must confess, but not new at all. The gentleman in the photograph has helped me to illustrate the experience.

And a lot of people does that, just at the end of the day they sit around central park for a few minutes before they go home after a day of work.

Everything Is Closer

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Well, literally in this case, but actually applies to many things we can do today, most of them thanks to technology.¬† A few days ago Luna published about people watching in XelaDailyPhoto, as you can see we take that very seriously here in Guatemala City ūüėČ


Get In Line, Boys!

There is definitely something wrong with these kids… they are trying to enter in to the bus two at a time and someone in the back is pushing everyone, a daily moment kinda funny anyway.

This Is A Tree

Monday, June 27th, 2011

The campaign that you see above is creative, at least different. I think there’s a direct impact on the viewer contrasting the amount of paper equivalent to a tree. The idea is to leave a message of responsibility at the time of use paper.

What do you think?

La campa√Īa que se muestra en la fotograf√≠a me parece creativa, por lo menos diferente. Pienso que hay un impacto directo en el observador contrastando inmediatamente la cantidad de papel equivalente a un √°rbol. La idea es enviar el mensaje de responsabilidad al momento de hacer uso del papel.

¬ŅQu√© te parece?

Red Triumph At the Mall

Red Triumph by Rudy Girón

Apperently Triumphs automobiles are very popular in Guatemala. It was only yesterday that Hugo published a white Triumph and today I follow up with a red Triumph found the Eskala mall in a mini show of classic cars.

Which do you prefer, the red one or the white Triumph?

Aparentemente los autos Triumph son muy populares en Guatemala. Apenas ayer Hugo nos mostraba un Triumph blanco y hoy le sigo con un Triumph rojo que encontré en el centro comercial Eskala en un mini show de autos clásicos.

¬ŅCu√°l prefieres el Triumph blanco o el rojo?

The Triumph In The Streets

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

In Guatemala City we can’t stay behind ūüėȬ† This classic TRIUMPH automobile was parked in zona 13¬†and you could say that vehicles back then did have character.

En la ciudad de Guatemala no nos podemos quedar atrás.  El automóvil clásico estaba parqueado en la zona 13.  En aquél entonces los automóviles sí que tenían caracter.

A visit to the museums

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

It’s nice to visit the museums on weekdays, isn’t crowded and the atmosphere is calmer. The girls in the picture arrived to the museum and we can certainly say that they were having fun.

Es agradable visitar los museos entre semana, no hay mucha gente y el ambiente es m√°s tranquilo.¬† Las ni√Īas en la fotograf√≠a llegaban a los museos y ya estaban pasando un buen rato.

It is common in Guatemala at the end of the day of study or recess start a football game, also known as chamusca and believe me, these are made anywhere. A callejón or any other place that allows it.

oh! nostalgia.

Es com√ļn en Guatemala al final del d√≠a de estudio o en el recreo jugar f√ļbol, actividad que tambi√©n se conoce como chamusca y se juega en el lugar que sea. Un callej√≥n o cualquier lugar que lo permita.
