    Really like the grittiness of your first black and white - but what is that wild "ride" in your second?!

    Beautiful lighting in your second B&W.

    Those "pole acrobats" are papantla pole flyers, something quite traditional in the Yucatan. They climb to the top of a hundred foot pole and proceed to descend through (slow at first and then faster and faster) countless revolutions (upside down) till they reach mother earth.

    The clock tower in Cozumel was a real chance find.

    Thanks for your kind comments.
