    This illustrates the Mexican mindset in many ways…  “Lowest price guaranteed, mucho caliente (very hot) and Viva Mexico”.  A combination of tacky marketing, passion  and love of the country.  Not sure if this is street photography, documentary or just plain silly.  It is inside the terminal for cruise ships hence the English.

    It doesn’t look like he needs Viagra… 🙂
    (Ah of course, commercial advertising is never very truthful)

    Well made me smile.

    It certainly has impact, Lenny!  Have never seen a sliding door on the outer side of the (grill door?).   It works well, takes away from the starkness.  Am sure it works equally with street and documentary.  Gave me a smile too!

    Just good market research I reckon. A bloke needs to stock up if he’s going on a cruise 🙂

    This definitely qualifies as street photography in my eyes. And you do this kind of work so well. The big compositional plus for me, interestingly, are the tiles on the ground. They move  my eye right up through the picture, and what is static becomes dynamic because of my eye motion. It does feel like the crop is a little tight. My guess is that you had no choice on that. Well done!

    Thanks for the comments!

    Diane, almost everything is tiled here and it is a fun challenge to compose with it.  Your right the crop is tight.  I would have had to do a bunch of finicky Photoshop work to keep more and I’m trying not to spend so much time fiddling with processing.

    I have always heard warnings about taking Mexican pharmaceuticals, but had no
    Idea Viagra could turn you the color blue.
