Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – As I continued setting up the new photo galleries this week, I found myself spending extra time staring into these photos of the Puerto Vallarta sculptures on the Malecon.
Not so much the sunny, colorful captures of the “boardwalk” (you can see them all here). But instead these moody almost monotone photos taken on a twilight stroll as the storm clouds gathered.
It was an incredibly busy family trip (as usual), with full agendas each day–and me, guilty as usual of rarely putting the camera down. The kids just wanted some pool time back at the hotel, understandably. Their dad was happy to join in.
And I? Well … I relished in a quiet solo stroll as evening storm clouds gathered above the Bay of Banderas. Suddenly the light began shifting by the second. The landmark sculptures took on new life. And nobody paid a bit of attention as I clicked and squatted and hunched and sprang about the bronze beings.
For recommendations of things to do in Puerto Vallarta with kids, don’t miss my family guide. And see my stock photos of Puerto Vallarta sculptures on the Malecon and more (digital downloads available). For more information about the Puerto Vallarta sculptures on the Malecon, see this article.
Wishing you all a peaceful evening ….
