Mexico street photography

In March, Kristiaan and I took my parents to Playa Del Carmen and Tulum [Mexico] for a week. Amidst the days of micheladas and relaxation I spent two days walking around town looking for simple city life.

Much harder than it sounds.

I would see an interesting scene and be too timid to approach and photograph it like it deserved. Or when I did, I would cause my subjects to become camera aware. Tough balance, but I'm working on it. Unfortunately I took the "easy" route by letting myself get distracted by textures, shapes and pretty colors. Below are just a few of my favorites and just found out my "soccer" image was accepted by Vogue IT for "Pics of the day". You can see it here.
