Postcard – The Man from Malpica, Mexico

On a special “MexMonday,” (it’s Mexico bicentennial celebration week) I wanted to post a photo that’s special to me. Not solely because of the substance, but also because it enabled me to meet a great community of people who promote Mexico. People I now call my friends.

On an excursion to visit some of the charming pueblos within a short distance of Mazatlan, the tour stopped in Malpica. With a population of less than 1,000 and basically untouched by time, the town houses a seemingly simple bakery. In a small oven, some of the finest pastries in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico are created.  And we arrived for a taste. Breakfast. And Delicious.

Outside, between bites, I snapped this image. A memory, a moment; a man and his best friend.

Shortly afterwards, I submitted the picture for the weekly MexMonday photo contest. (~Oct ’09-Feb ’10). This photo, along with a few others I submitted over time claimed honors – It won. It’s award winning.

So, this Monday I take off my sombrero (my hat) to the creator of the weekly MexMonday, my friend Stephanie, and everyone else who promotes Mexico on Mondays. I love the photos, stories, and specials.  A Feliz (Happy) MexMonday mis amigos.

Stay adventurous, Craig

    Love the colours in this photo, Craig, so Mexican. It looks as though the guy dressed for the occasion by matching the colour of his shirt to the wall!
