I've photographed in Yucatan and In Oaxaca before; and enjoyed it enormously. Late in 2005 I'd like to travel to central Mexico and photograph in the "silver cities". Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende and Queretaro look good candidates from the limited information I can get from my guidebooks.
I like photographing colourful old streets, preferably with an element of patina or even decay. I don't much want to photograph people or tourist icons but I do want to make sure that I end up in places where I can spend a couple of days or so walking the streets (I'll have a car, but don't tend to use it much in cities) photographing characterful, colourful buildings or fragments of them.
I guess I have a couple of questions. First, am I picking the right places? I don't really want to visit more than three cities but I could swap Moralia or San Luis Potosi for one or two of the others. Secondly. Is the opportunity reasonably evenly spread between these cities or should I perhaps be concentrating on one and topping up on the others. I'll have a week to 9 days for the trip, flying into and out of Mexico City.
Thanks for your help.
