Photographs of Alison Armstrong

“I’m inspired by colour and the challenge to capture colour. I’m inspired by the exotic whether it’s birds or flowers or people with a lifestyle radically different from my own. I’m inspired by the ever changing light and the challenge to capture light. I’m always inspired by beauty.”

The first six are from San Miguel de Allende – the streets, a sunset over the town, and at a couple of different festivals. San Miguel is a cultural hub.

The next five are in La Manzanilla – the birds, the beach, the sunset, the flowers. It’s a very beautiful untouched small fishing village.

It’s a tourist town and the beach is always busy – I decided to play around with camera settings for some more interesting shots.
