Sticking with the theme of my first post last week, I'm challenging myself to get just one good image a day while here in wonderful Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico.

I keep wondering if, before long, I won't have taken all the interesting shots and will be left with nothing to take but those slightly off-kilter, Corona-in-the-foreground, murmering-surf-in-the-background shots that suggest that we're here and having a great time, but don't say much about where and what that "here" actually is.

But I guess that's why we keep coming back to Zihuatanejo. You don't really have to look that far or that hard to find the soul of this place: the nearly universal good nature and kindness of the people; the amazing shapes and patterns that Nature and people create when trying to co-exist in paradise; the way things move, the rhythms...and, oh, the colors!

So, anyway, here are a few more such small wonders that have caught my wandering eye this week.

LOVE these photos, Jeffrey!! I was in Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico for about 3 - 4 weeks when I was in my early twenties. I'm sure it's much changed since them, but I loved the people, the children, the markets, and the sea. I also hiked up into the hills a bit as well. Your photos are each unique and delightful. So enjoyed them and this post!! Hugs to you, my friend. Hola!! :)

Hola mi amiga -- It's great to hear we have yet another connection of spirit based on this bigger, but still enchanting place. It would have been fun to go with you at that time on some of those fearless, perceptive treks.
It's so nice to hear from you, as I've been feeling a bit out of touch. Thanks!!

I like the "roots-stone-wall" picture. There's something really cool about the tree still blooming with its roots so exposed. In addition, the stone steps and wall capture a mood.

If I had to give it a caption, I'd say "Deny Mother Nature at your peril"

Enjoy your trip and all the pictures were stunning:~)

Hey, Sara -- thanks so much for your visit to ONe Man's Wonder and your comment.
Really glad that photo caught your eye -- it's probably the least colorful of my recent shots, but you've obviously seen the other aspects of texture, form and even that mood -- the indomitable instinct of Nature to always find a way. Love your caption!
