We have been back in San Miguel since New Years Eve, and continue our love affair with this colonial delight of a town. Things have changed here considerably since our visit last Spring, significantly driven we think by Conde Nast’s readers poll making San Miguel the top pick as the best place to visit on the planet. But the influx of significantly more Mexican visitors is also evident, particularly on the weekends.
Unlike prior years when we have been in one small apartment or another, this time we have rented our friends Denis and Patti’s lovely little house, still in the central part of town but now with two bedrooms and a nice patio to enjoy the outside. It has also permitted us to have two sets of friends down for almost a week in each case, and thus allowed us to share this little treasure with others unfamiliar with it.
Since we have well over 2000 photographs from San Miguel, including of course festivals, parades and dances, Bonnie has not been taking nearly the volume of photographs this trip. So we thought we would give you a selection of the doors and windows she has captured for what they say of the architecture, color and even life of this community. Let’s start with some interesting windows.
Then there are the doors–endless doors from the grandest in town, the entry way to what used to be the Canal family home and now the regional headquarters of Banamex Bank,
To those on the grander homes and public buildings,
And those on humbler commercial and residential structures.
Loved the pics! San Miguel is one very special place – especially when you’re there with Bonnie and Davie.
And we just wish you were here all the time that we are! Missing you!
I GET IT. I GET THE FEEL, THE STYLE, THE WARMTH, THE GLAMOR, THE TRADITION, AND FUN …ALL
THRU GORGEOUS PHOTOGRAPHY. THANK YOU FOR SHARING. I LOVE IT AND CAN’T WAIT FOR MORE.
Thanks Susan–wish you were here to experience it first hand.
Saw pics of the new house furnished forwarded from Ann S.–looks absolutely lovely!
Beautiful photos, great subject well done. I will get to San Miguel one of these days when you are there!
A gorgeous collection!
Thanks, Shad! I hope you can come visit us the next time we’re in San Miguel!
One of these days, we will make it down there. Love the doors. I have always had a great love for old, wooden doors!
