Streets of Guatemala...

  1. Some street scenes from Guatemala City. It was not easy to carry a DSLR around Guatemala due to the high crime. People will instantly notice your camera as the typical person on the street doesn't even carry a p&s. I don't think I saw a single person carrying even a small handheld camera. I had to keep it in my bag and pull it in and out for quick snapshots.

    In any case... here's a few to share with everyone. C&C appreciated.

    Typical Streets, 38mm, iso200, f/8, 1/125s
