You are born into your family. No matter how far you may move they are still your family. True friends are the same way, regardless how far you live from each other they are still your friends, and even better these friends are the Family YOU CHOSE.
I developed a roll of film this week, which like many other rolls was unmarked and forgotten about. I was so happy to see the below images on said roll. I met Alejandro about 15 years ago while I lived in Guanajuato. I had decided that my Spanish was turning into Spanglish and the only way to fix that was to go to school in Mexico. I am a Guanajuato native so I thought it was a great idea to enroll in the university there. During my first semester I met Alejandro and we quickly became really good friends having many near death experiences on his motorcycle. Although that is a whole post in itself. I left Guanajuato and moved to Guadalaraja a year and a half later however we remain really good friends –> family. His sons call me “tia” (aunt) and his wife pictured below is like my sister. So much that many times during my visit we went out and left Alex at home with his son. At the time they only had one son.
Have you been to Guanajuato? I wuld love to hear about it. Leave me a comment in the comments section!!
These were taken in October of 2007 during a visit to Guanajuato, Gto. during the International Cervantino festival. IF you’ve never been you should definitely throw it on your “to visit ” list. It’s also an amazing place for a honeymoon and a trash the dress session. I’m more than willing to travel to this location ( or any other) for a session. What do you think?
