Many have asked us this questions! We lived in San Miguel de Allende and for some times in Guanajuato, the state capital, for about 4 years. We consider our self fortunate! Thursday afternoon in San Miguel, going to the bus stop. Located in the center of Mexico, about 4 hours drive from Mexico City, Guanajuato is one of the most beautiful, cultural area of Mexico and it's blessed with fantastic weather all year around. Traditional huge poppet going to celebrate in the main plaza of SAn Miguel de Allende, Nov. 2014 The streets are full of people starting as early as 6 AM, rushing to work, later you'll see parents taking their kids to school, the tourists start looking for a coffee shops about 9 AM. It is an over all friendly and relaxed atmosphere.  The local bakeries, such as la Espiga on Insurgentes, has delicious whole grain goods! The streets are busy all day and into the night. So far in 4 years I did not witness a street fight, burglary, or police botheri

THE ART OF SEEING, New photographer’s travel tour in San Miguel de Allende 2013

We are a team of two painters who recently moved to San Miguel from Playa del Carmen Mexico. We both love photography  and when taking a photo we understand, from an artist perspective , the importance of light, contrast, texture, layout, positive and negative space and so on. My first artistic appearances in the New Your art galleries was with photography. My teacher, photographer of NYC Ballet, at the time made a great impact in the way I “see” through the camera lenses. I no longer show or sell my photographs but the teacher in me (my first teaching experience was in 1989 in NYC) loves to share the way of “ Seeing”  as a photographer and artist. San Miguel de Allende offers an endless fountain of subject: architecture, nature, people… Join us in this charming Mexican town , bring your camera, and we’ll show you the best hidden place and share with you the art of SEEING.
