Oaxaca, Mexico

Here are a few Kodachrome transparency images from Oaxaca, Mexico. I took these in 1988 while I was doing field research for my masters thesis in environmental science at Baylor University. I recently copied these images with a slide copier and my Nikon D300. The quality isn't great, but I like the fuzy feel of them nonetheless. These were taken before I was even using a film SLR. I didn't get my first SLR, a Nikon FE2, until 1989. I just had a little point and shoot film camera, an old Olympus Stylus I think. I also took a lot of prints, but most of these are faded and probably wouldn't scan too well. I took these pictures before I really got into photography, but I was always aware of composition. After a bit of Photoshop work, several of these are not too bad. I would love to go back to southern Mexico again and spend a couple of weeks focused solely on photography, it is such a beautiful diverse place.
