I’m going to bounce around a little in this series because I really wanted to get to these photos of our “central park” in Morelia. I generally edit the photos for each post either the day of posting or the day before. I processed these yesterday evening and I was excited to get them posted so people could see them. Tomorrow, I will return to the first photos of the walk and include shots of the small Oaxacan food and crafts fair I went to shortly after arriving at Plaza Morelos.
Many cities in Mexico have planned central parks that include many trees and walkways. Morelia’s Bosque del Cuauhtémoc was originally on the edge of the colonial urban area we now call “Centro.” The houses and businesses around it grew up after 1900 for the most part – originally a “suburban” development that is now integrated into the whole city we call Morelia today. It is a beautiful asset for Morelia and is much loved as you will see in these photos and more that will follow in the coming days.
All of these photos are tone-mapped singles. I really enjoyed this walk. Everyone was out enjoying the day and the photos are a lot of fun to edit as I work to bring out the color and shadow I saw. Enjoy.
