What it is:
Photo measuring a bit more than 4.5 x 2.75 inches.
What I know about it:
Written in pencil is the word Macio, though I have no idea what that means or refers to.
I try not to laugh at the well-intentioned subjects of my photos, but this one makes me chuckle. It looks like somebody tried to arrange a nice family photo and became overwhelmed by the mob that turned out. They are all mushed together between the two trees, even though the camera is framing the scene in a way that would allow them to spread out. People are hidden behind each other, and in the shadows at the back. Ah, well. A good bunch of them have been captured for posterity anyway. I’m curious about the setting, too. The architecture of the building reminds me more of a store than a house. And the whole scene, including the clothing, looks, to my American eyes, somewhat foreign.
