Mexico -- Guanajuato and San Miguel (2007)

These photos are from a one week visit in July 2007 to the city of Guanajuato and the town of San Miguel de Allende in the highlands of central Mexico. Both were established in the 1500s by the Spanish and were once very prosperous from the silver mining industry. They also played an important role in the struggle for Mexican independence.

Cameras: Canon 30D (Canon 17-40L, 50 1.8, and Tamron 18-250 lenses) and the Sony H-5.
