The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

September 2017 Theme Day: Photographing The Photographer

Due to lack of time I don’t post in a daily basis, I try to do it at least once a month, on the occasion of the theme day issue.

Dear friend Carraol,
I hope that all is well with you and your family.
I am so very sorry to know about the powerful earthquake that hits central Mexico!
What a sad tragedy... My solidarity for the entire Mexican population.
Many hugs from your friend Sonia.

As always, these photos are very beautiful!

We miss you.

Carraol said...

Hello, Bob, I really appreciate your kind words. I also miss your wonderful photos every morning, your stories and impressions of your part of the world. In September 2017, I stopped taking pictures, due mostly to lack of time and besides, in that same month we suffered two earthquakes that altered, one way or another, our personal and work lives, which eventually affected the availability of time to share photos. I have not stopped taking pictures, but not to show only my city, but a more intimate way, and to develop new ways. Now I'm publishing photos on Instagram (, and other members of the cities community post there as well. I'll try to get back to the blog as soon as I can. Greetings, thank you again and take care of yourself.
