Back in November I had the opportunity to travel down to Mexico for an assignment for the Standard-Times. I'll go into more detail about the assignment in a later blog post. The assignment had me spending most of my time in the town of San Miguel de Allende, a city in central Mexico designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And the city was given a 2013 Readers' Choice Award for best city to visit in the world by Condé Nast Traveler. This place is beautiful!
A photographer's bag of tools is loaded with expensive cameras and lenses, but for me one of the most useful and least obtrusive is my iPhone. My phone allows me to do some street photography that I might not otherwise be able to do with other cameras. It's quiet, low profile and nobody thinks twice when they see someone staring at the back of their phone on the street. I mean, lets be honest, we all have a phone and it's the tool that everyone uses to document their own lives.
Here are a few of my street photography favorites from my week in San Miguel de Allende.
