People of Guadalajara
and art have been recurring themes in Deb Roskamp's photographic
studies. In The People of Guadalajara, Ms. Roskamp explores
the relationships between the Mexican people and the great
plazas, cathedrals, architecture and sculptures of Guadalajara.
Considered to be the most Mexican of Mexico's cities, Guadalajara
has long been a favorite domestic tourist destination for
Mexican families. Ms. Roskamp captures the joy, excitement
and spirit of Mexicans as they experience the city's great
art, and thus become part of the artistic landscape themselves...
of Guadalajara was photographed over a weeklong period in
August of 2007, while Ms. Roskamp was enrolled in Spanish
language studies at IMAC.

Okay, Im going to Guadalajara.
It looks like a destination that Mexican tourists go to. Amazing
shots. Of course, Im a sucker for kids.
You certainly have an eye for photography. Sometimes
we stay in a place too long to appreciate the beauty that surrounds
us. Your photos show a visitor appreciating not only the sculptures
but the intermingling of the people around it. I believe sculptures
were meant to be experienced and I'm glad the Guadalajara government
opened this interaction instead of relegating these pieces in
a stuffy museum.
Would love to see more of your work.
South Pasadena, CA
Seeing kids playing on art: that's amazing. It's
what art and travel are all about. Thanks for capturing some pretty
striking images. These should be in a book.
The images are magnificent; I have only been to
Mexico on two occasions and would love to discover more of it.
Ill have to add Guadalajara to my long list of places to

The late Bing Crosby crooned about it, but The

Is it more momentous for a Brit to do the Buckingham
Palace tour than say an American or indeed any other nationality? Yes, I
know that's an odd question, but if you grow up as I did in
London back in the 1950s, getting inside Buckingham Palace was the stuff
of dreams. Hence my surprise at touring BP in 2005.

The first thing you notice is the fragrance. The intoxicating
perfume of the tiare flower announces to your senses that you are in a magical
place, overflowing with tropical vegetation and soothing trade winds. It
is the same fragrance that the English seamen on the HMS Bounty also first
encountered; but they came, not for flowers, but for breadfruit, intended
as a new food staple for their slaves in the West Indies.

The Southwest Louisiana Mardi Gras in Lake Charles,
the second largest in Louisiana, does not need parents there to avert their
childrens eyes. This is family entertainment and children are very
much part of it. The main office of the Lake Charles CVB has costumes from
last years Mardi Gras but it also has figures to fascinate little
ones from country boys fishing for their dinner to alligators who have already
fed and are rubbing their stomachs.

Walking home to our apartment in Venice, we share a
wave through the window with the owner of Baba, our local osteria. Leaving
for a day of sightseeing, a cup of my favorite pistachio gelato awaits me
despite the early hour. At the Bar Dugole, we relax after a day of sightseeing
and order the regular: vodka for my husband and Amaretto for me.

A Taste of Savory, Sumptuous Solvang
Maybe it was the handmade sweets at Ingeborg's Chocolate
Factory, or the boutique luxury at Hotel Corque. Or was it the wine and
friendly atmosphere at Wandering Dog, the comforting, cuisine at Chomp,
or the town's Danish-inspired architecture? Whatever the reason, Solvang
has a special way of putting me in instant vacation mode.
Film Review: "My Hero Brother" A Tribute
to the Human Spirit
I just spent five days attending the Santa Barbara Film
Festival and for the most part, the features, animated shorts, and documentaries
were quite professional and compelling. That said, "My Hero Brother,"
a documentary that was particularly outstanding, told the remarkable and
inspiring story about a group of Down syndrome young men and women who
go on a two-week trek through the Himalayas with their non-Down syndrome
