I would rate the results of my little in-the-surf photo shoot as rather mixed. It did provide some different angles and perspectives on the waves not obtainable from land. Some of the photos were disappointing, however. One of the problems is that as I was being pulled, pushed or tossed around by a wave, as I was when taking this photo, it is impossible to hold the cameral still.
Today is Sunday, so we are showing new photos on our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage. This week we are showing some from Merida, the largest city in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, which has retained some of its Spanish colonial charm and has a museum that showcases the Mayan civilization that preceded the Spanish conquest.
