Campeche

Seafront at Campeche in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. Feb 2018

The seafront at Campeche in the Yucatan peninsula of southern Mexico has been the subject of some innovative redevelopment as a remarkable public space. Landscaped walking, running, and cycling tracks run along a sitting-height sea wall for over five kilometers along the Gulf shore. Even the palm trees give the impression of high design, with the white-painted bases (to deter bugs from climbing) and the banded strips where the annual leaf growth has been removed.

Duraznos Dulches

Peach seller on road from San Miguel to Querétaro, Mexico, Feb 2018

Duraznos Dulches, or Sweet Peaches. For sale on the road from San Miguel de Allende to Querétaro in central Mexico. All along this highway topes, or speedbumps, cause traffic to slow down giving these locals a chance to sell all manner of fresh fruit. At this time of the year, mostly peaches and pineapples.

Wall of Waste

Garbage waiting for collection, 92nd Street, New York, Jan 2018

It is amazing how much garbage and recycling is produced by a single apartment building in New York over just a few days. In this instance, six inches of snow delayed collection for three days resulting in this impressive collection, mostly recycling materials in color-coded bags.
