A Shadow Shot day in Mexico

I enjoy seeing other bloggers give me a tour of their day, so I thought I would do the same this Sunday.

Last Saturday, I did my shopping at the local Mercado for vegetables. Before going there, I stopped my the plaza downtown to log into their Wi-Fi and check my email. While sitting on the bench there, I noticed this shadow on the door. Doors and windows here are amazing! There is never an uninteresting door or window.

Later in the afternoon, my husband and I went for a long walk in the baking sun. We came across an outdoor market. I found the wetstone I needed to sharpen my cooking knives, so it was a fruitful search. I caught sight of this man and his "working bicycle". I see these all over the city. There is a huge basket on the front side that sits over two wheels with the seat over one wheel in the back.

Ah, baking sun, that has such a wonderful ring to it...we have sun, but it's of the Frigidaire kind...like frozen!!!

The doors down there are fabulous, you wonder what lies behind...have a wonderful weekend!!!

I really like the delicate tree shadows on the big, chunky door. Nice framing.

You certainly do live in a very interesting city. There's always so much to see and going on in your area! The door and the shadwos decorating it is lovely. And that bike! Wow! It kind of looks like it is the wrong way around to me. I'm so short that I don't think I'd be able to see over the contents of the basket. But then judging by the contents of the basket I doubt I'd have the energy to ride it very far anyway. Looks like very hard work!

Such fascinating photos! And that bike is so loaded it is a wonder that anyone could ride it!

Hi, Juana! Those heavy wooden doors are beautiful...the richness of the wood and carving is so welcoming! And that man and his unique bicycle... a bike with a HUGE basket--good idea! I wouldn't mind one of those for shopping outings--LOL! Hope you're having a great weekend :o) ((HUGS))
