The 30 Day Project. Why I Love to Live in Mexico. Reason #4. You Meet the Coolest People

Every now and then I see someone who really catches me, and I feel compelled to photograph them. Sometimes I try to just do it discreetly, but most of the time I ask permission. This young girl just got my attention in a folk art gallery yesterday. Possibly because she reminded me a bit of myself at that age. What I loved was the scarf. How many little girls would choose to wear a scarf? A future accessory diva, that’s who! Her parents did not object (sometimes parents can get a little uptight when you start taking pictures of their young ‘uns) and she, being the runway star of the future, was way into it. Her mom told me she had chosen to wear the scarf because she thought “it made her look Mexican.” She has as much chance of “looking Mexican” as I do but I completely get where she’s coming from.
