Reflections in San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende is like going into a candy store with unlimited funds.  It is eye candy for the eyes.  Not only what you see right in front of you is beautiful, the reflections in some of the windows around town are really interesting.  I love this one shot that I took on Calle Insurgentes, right around the corner from Calle Hidalgo, with the delicate curtains mixed with the reflection of the colorful building across the street.
At the right time of the day, the colors can be so intense.
One of the windows at the childhood home of General Ignacio Allende with the the reflection of the jardin (the main square).
Another beautiful window of one of the stately homes that line the jardin.
I love how the reflection of the cast iron is illuminated on the glass.  It looks so three dimensional.
It is as if I was watching TV when looking into this little stall with its carnitas for sale with its steady stream of traffic and people going by.  It is amazing at what you can see if you just think outside the box, or in this case, into a window.
