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.

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

Treasures of Ireland: Piped Inside Ashford Castle
The Palladian Traveler enters into a world of regal
elegance wrapped in Irish charm as he files his latest dispatch from inside
one of the Emerald Isle's most storied fortresses.
As we dropped down to 25,000 feet I saw one of the
most extraordinary panoramas I'd ever been lucky enough to witness. The
majesty of it all and the stunning vistas that lay below and before me were
spectacular. It was as beautiful as spring's first rose, and it made me
understand why so many pilots on commercial jetliners love their job; they
get to see so many awe-inspiring sights from the cockpit. My view was that
of a vast vista of the Pacific.

In the 1840s, the population of California was only
14,000, but by 1850 more than 100,000 settlers and adventurers had arrived
from all over the world and they came for one reason: gold. James
Marshall had discovered the first gold nugget at Sutters Mill in El
Dorado County, creating the largest gold rush in history.

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.

Having recently received a misguided shout-out from
the president during Black History Month Frederick Douglass has done
an amazing job... it seems a good time to revisit the cultural icon's
legitimate place in history. And a visit to his home in Washington, DC
surely a place the current president might want to consider visiting himself
would be a good place to start.

Discovering Art, Culture and Cuisine in Lancaster
Lancaster has always been one of those cities that I pass
through on the way to some other destination. But last week was different.
I finally took the time to explore the place and wow, was I surprised!
I discovered a downtown full of charm, culture, cuisine and community
spirit. My recent getaway began when a friend and I drove about 60 miles
north of Los Angeles toward the Mojave Desert and checked into the Towneplace
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
