Archive #7 - Don Miguel

Driving out of Merida, we passed by this hacienda and there was a chapel so we stopped. I photographed some around the ruins of the hacienda and then we went into the chapel. It was in fairly good repair and was still being used. A older man was in the back doing some cleaning. We asked permission to photograph. He said "Si." After I photographed some in the Chapel I asked if I might photograph him. He went and found a chair and "posed" for me. This is very typical of older Mexicans. Don Miguel had a dignity and an expectation of how he wanted to appear in a photograph. On our next trip to Merida, we took a photograph to him.
