Got a few more days of good shots from Mexico and then we'll be back to the New York stuff.

Since this was shot from the hip, while it looks like he's looking off at something else, this man is actually looking directly at me.

Chichen Itza, Mexico

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/2601/chichen_itza-1.jpg

Here are some photos from a day trip that we took to Chichen Itza, a large archeological site built by the Maya Civilization in the northern center of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Chichen Itza, which means "at the mouth of the well of Itza", was used as a religious site, where the pre-Columbian Maya sacrificed objects and humans as a way to worship the Maya rain god.  The building above is the main structure in Chichen Itza, known as the Kukulkan Pyramid and was one of the seven new wonders of the world that were elected in 2007.

Besides the structure itself, I found the people that were hawking souvenirs to be extremely interesting.  You got to watch them chip away at blocks of wood to create these pieces.

Is it just me, or does this seem to have an anti-American influence?

Woman Selling Produce, Valladolid, Mexico

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/2561/women_selling_produce_Valladolid_mexico.jpg

I'm back from my trip, refreshed and ready to get back to work.  I didn't do much photography there, only taking my camera out once during a trip to the pyramids, but we did stop in this beautiful old town called Valladolid for lunch one day and I shot people for an hour or so.  Will post more of these over the next few days.
