Taxco Flashback

Years ago I visited the small town of Taxco in Mexico. Really nice place, good food and awesome local flavor. I had forgotten about the photos I made but I thought I should post them now… in black and white since this is a flashback!

Estacionamiento means parking lot… Est-acinaminento sounds like Spanish for an overpacked parking lot… probably true in an old town.

OK, the truth: the year was 2004 and this was my first digital camera, the Nikon Coolpix 5000 (RIP). I told you this was a flashback.
