Day 29 - High Flyers on the Malecon

There is never a dull moment along the Malecon (boardwalk) of Puerto Vallarta. It was my lucky day today - finally saw the Voladores de Papantla (Papantla Flyers) performing their show which is filled with symbolism. More in a future post on this.

These ‘bird men’, as they’re also known as, perform by slowly twirling downwards from a tall pole secured only by a rope around their waist as they slowly circle the pole and gently fall to the earth below.Papantla Flyers C06469.jpg

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
