The Canyon of Jimulco has finally become one of the country's protected areas. It's a very good place to camp and shoot arrows (great for arrow head searching), and it's a very special place for the contrast it represents. In order to get there, you have to travel several kilometres in barren desert, but when you reach the canyon, you find a seasonal river that has beach-like sand and is an excellent place for camping.
This photo was taken while my 11 year old son and I were paddling together on a raft down the river Nazas. The canyon of Fernandez is a special place to think, relax and go camping. I like to spend time here with him so we can talk, not just father to son, but man to man. Mountain biking is another activity that I love to share with my son. This photo was taken by my brother when my son and I were hiking a mountain path in Dinamita Durango near Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico.
On the afternoons of my days off, I like to go to the city centre and people watch. I like to imagine their stories and their lives, and to see their customs. Sometimes it makes me happy, and others it makes me nostalgic, but it always satisfies me to capture those moments in a photograph. Seeing people making a living by working every day on the street, even in extreme weather, is really satisfying, especially when they are so old that they shouldn't be working, but they have to keep on doing it in order to survive. These dunes are in Coahuila, near a town called Viesca. You can spend a great time interacting with family and despite the tiresome heat and strong sun, it's still really fun.
Culture has many forms, and in Mexico wrestling is one of those forms. Forget the violent appearance of this activity, the truth is that Mexicans have created a show around it, that crosses borders. The fighters, possess peculiar names such as Rey Mysterio, black gold or spider Future, and every night they give the best of themselves to entertain families who come to see them. Just don't go expecting to witness a real battle, this is a show and you have to admire the staging.
