South of the Border - The Dainty Squid

South of the Border

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Last week I shared some black and white land camera photos from South of the Border and I'm back today with the 35mm color photos. I LOVE how these turned out. I shot these with my pentax k1000. I really love that camera, but I'm not super confident with it. Some time after falling in love with it I shot a bad roll and then kind of avoided it for a while. I figured it would make a good road trip camera and only took it as well as my land camera on the trip. It was an A+ choice!
Isn't South of the Border such a fun, colorful place?! I'm obsessed with these photos. I think they'd make killer postcards, especially the one of the jackalope.

  3. Love them, the whale is my favorite, it looks like if it's smiling at you. You should come to Veracruz once, we had this awful children's park that people said is haunted, specially because is in front of the cemetery

  8. Awww, looks so fun and definitely brings back memories. It doesn't look as big as I remember, but then again, I must have been 4 or 5 last time I was there.

    Thanks for the nostalgia! They really do look like they could be post cards!

  14. This place is less creepier in color! I thought the black and white photos gave it a creepy look especially on the gorillas but looking at these I could see it as an extremely fun place to look at! :)
