These photographs are a part of a collection I shot while in Granada, Nicaragua. The people and the daily life in Granada kept me constantly seeing in new ways through the viewfinder. The bright colors and gorgeous light were visually captivating and helped to make images of the simple pieces of life more interesting. It is difficult and, I think, unnecessary to explain these images: the photos tell a story, and I am outside of them, looking in and marveling at all that I see.
