I finally got my act together to post the photos from Mexico. I didn’t edit it down quite as heavily as my other travel galleries so there might be an unreasonable amount of cruft to sift through to get to the really good stuff, I hope to fix that eventually.

Yeah, we’re too cutesy for our own good, but while we were away Patsy and I got ourselves rings with blue opal.
Eventually I’d like to really do a _good_ ‘product-shot’ image of these – this one has some issues with the lighting and the black background, marks and dust that I am too lazy to retouch out – I’d rather just shoot it again the right way…
We spent the afternoon today at Tulum, which is a really beautiful site kinda near Cancun. It reminded me a bit of the Roman Forum, or what I imagine Ostia Antiqa might be like (I didn’t make it to the latter.) There were beautiful ruins, a gorgeous beach, and iguanas everywhere (I love iguanas)
We got up early today and headed straight for the ruins. WOW – it was pretty much everything I had hoped for – pyramids, columns, carvings, falling-down buildings… It felt really old and somewhat sacred, despite the throngs of tourists who began to show up after we had been there an hour or so.
There were also tons of craft booths, I bought way too much stuff.
My itty-bitty laptop isn’t really up to the job of running Aperture, so I only have a couple photos ready to post, I will add more when I get home.
