I took this picture with friends in the historic center of Tampico. I like it because I think it is a style in which the strength is reflected, the tree is bone that survive against all odds can survive!
Heroica Matamoros (also known simply as Matamoros)is a city situated in the north of the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. It is located on the border between Mexico and the United States, on the southern side of the Rio Grande. On the opposite side of the river from Matamoros is the U.S. city of Brownsville, Texas. The city has less than half a million inhabitants. For us, the city was a target on our route from Miami to Matamoros, we crossed the Rio Grande and then returned back to Florida. A border city, which we found quieter than its sister city - Tijuana. Ideal for fast and cheap shopping because the Matamoros economy depends heavily on its position as a U.S. border entry city, freight traffic using the international bridges and the entry of American tourists.
I cross the Panuco River every two weeks to visit family and I always sit on the shore in the shade of some trees to watch the sunset and enjoy the tranquility. I´ve taken several photos on different days that have been particularly spectacular and special for me.
Oscar Trevino Matamoros is privileged: Situated on the banks of the Rio Grande and the Gulf of Mexico, is a zone of big estuaries. One of them is at the International Bridge "General Ignacio Zaragoza", better known as "Tomatoes". The city on the U.S. border, plays a significant role in trade. This bridge is east of the county seat, covers an area of 31 hectares. It has spacious and contemporary infrastructure that provides services for import, export and movement of persons. BEAUTY There is a lake 5000 square meters with sweeping fragrances. It is a space to observe the habitat, take pictures, walk, rest beside colonies of pelicans, herons, egrets, just enough to get permission in the Customs Administration.
Whenever I need inspiration, I go to this lagoon and its brilliance makes me feel so calm and happy. I share this place, just 200 meters from my home, that inspires me to paint. It inspires me to shout where no one can here me, only the birds and the wind.
Whenever I am at this lagoon I feel inspired, relaxed, calm and happy. It is not far from where I live and it always inspires me to paint.
The old train station still shows neglect, with an absence of voices and the bustle of travelers. An eternal wait separates the real world from the present world, and locomotives don´t stop, ignore it, then I will tear your clothes, your skin gradually fades.
In the center of the country, in the lowland zone, where a big industrial corridor are the group of archaeological sites that were found 10 years ago, where it was believed that only nomads were rooted to arrive. We had to take the Irapuato-Abasolo road where there is a detour to the village of San Jose de Peralta which is about 15 min from the junction, we went inside a traditional ranching village with nice people sunbathing talking to neighbors, dogs that follow the car, we asked for directions to go on a tiny dirt road and in less than 5 minutes you arrive to a fantastic place with parking on cobbled streets. On top of a hill with a view lovely view, with the contrast of vegetation between the trees and desert plants, cactus, organs, etc ...

Horse Bar in Tamaulipas. This trip was an extreme camping on the beach camp after traveling for 15 hours, of which 4 were on the beach in a 4x4 jeep, and was one of the best adventures I've had. From the trip comes this photo.
A good place for inspiration is very important. These mountains are the closest to my house. With these skies, there are always things to see, like the majestic colours, and it's certainly one of the best places to photograph.
