Almost all of the beautiful old ruins have been bought up and ruined, in a certain sense, since I bought a ruin in Merida one August 16 years ago. Merida has changed in so many ways for the better. But Gringos suburbanizing 18th and 19th century ruins is not one of them. My favorite thing to do is take photos of this changing city. In the past I would like to walk around with a big Canon changing the lens and taking time to frame and focus. These days it´s a more likely a quick shot with the iPhone while driving down the street. Here I´ll post a few quickies street shots from my Best of Yucatan Instagram account.
