This is a series of images I took a few years ago in Guadalajara Mexico from the back seat of a taxi. I have always liked the color and abstract nature of these images so I wanted to get them “out there”. Let me know what you think. Would you hang one on your wall?

I’ve often heard the advice that for every vertical composition, you should also take a horizontal one. The idea is that you never know what you will need in the future as well as providing an automatic way to ensure that you continue to work through and think through the scene.
At this scene I love the feeling of the wide shot below with its tunnel of trees and forced perspective. I do wish, however, that I brought the chain saw to deal with the dead branches on the right. On the other hand, the vertical shot brings its own power as a more intimate view into the creek.
