This is a 2005 photo from Acapulco, slightly improved via Lightroom and a filter or two. But not entirely salvaged. I was really pleased with the image at the time. The subject was great. But I didn’t frame it right. I cut off their feet. I don’t like cutting off feet. Having said that, I do remember that weekend in Acapulco and the amount of hassle you’re subjected to on the beach by vendors strolling up and down the beach and giving you their sales patter.
By late afternoon, I’d have probably paid someone to go cut off all their feet. Just for some peace and quiet. I speak in jest, of course. These guys and girls have to put in long hours and many miles to scrape a living. I wouldn’t have swapped my patch of beach for their stretch of sand.
