Julie taking photos in the old part of town
The shops in this photo are on what is called "the circle." It is the end of the beach front road and some of the oldest buildings in town are located here. You can see from the tin roofs that these buildings remain from the time that Tamarindo was a small fishing village that became a hang out for surfers.
The little sign in the bottom right of this photo is the logo of a group that opposes the building of high rise buildings in Tamarindo. The old buildings at this location at the heart of the beach would be a prime location for redevelopment.
This week we have photos of Tanzania posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

I have no idea how many photos my husband has taken of me taking photos. Thank goodness he doesn't have a photo blog.
I don't know anything about the politics and economics there, but offhand, I have to agree with the group. It would be nice to be able to preserve the town's historical feel, if not the actual old buildings.
You have a number of good photos of Julie; does she have the same of you? I also hope that development stays away from this historical center of Tamarindo.
The Zink roofs are common feature in our country !
THis is a great image - thanks for sharing!
I like taking pictures of people taking pictures. Julie must not mind it if you put them on the blog.
She seems to be absorbed in composition. A nice shot, Dave.
