Windows on Yucatan…

“Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.” ~ Edith Wharton

I like to check out the view through “windows” — both natural and man-made openings to the inside and outside worlds.  The image that is captured in a window is a limited view in the same way that concentrating on a single moment in time requires one to eliminate all of the distractions and influences surrounding it.  This is an impossible challenge in the interactions and exchanges of everyday life, where nothing is said or done or felt in isolation, but it’s possible to capture such isolated “moments” when armed with a camera.  I especially like a “window” with a view that contrasts greatly with its “frame.”

Here are a few favorites from my latest trip to Yucatan:
