Photographer's Note

At the resort Julie and I stayed at in Mexico, the Palladium in Punta de Mita, there were sellers on the beach everyday. There wares were displayed very colorfully. It amazed me they could sit there in that hot sun most of the day. It was nice if you didn't want to go into Puerto Vallarta and do the shopping mall thing, you could find whatever you liked there.

Last year I purchased some jewelry from them which I still wear today. The whole bartering for the price is a custom that I don't really like, but it's expected when you shop here. You never settle for the first price offered you, I found that I'd offer half of whatever they said and settle for something in between. There were ladies who would braid your hair for you also, and the gentlemen would sometimes bring their trays of jewelry right up to your beach chair. All in all an interesting experience.

Photo: This is actually not a good photo, it's cropped out of a background of another subject, then some cloning in the sand. I just thought it was a good colorful testament to this cultural aspect of my trip to Mexico.

Cropped, Cloned, Levels, Resized, Sharpened.
