This post was supposed to turn out quite differently. Templo Mayor is a special post.
Before leaving on our trip, the one thing my father asked me to do for him was to visit the Tenochtitlan ruins in Mexico City at Templo Mayor. One of his life long dreams is to finally visit the Aztec capital that has consumed his imagination for so many years.
I can totally do that for you, Pops.
And I was more than happy to do it as well. Ever since I was a little kid, the book Aztec has been sitting in my father’s library – and more than one copy too since it is one of his favorite books and he will give copies to anyone who even remotely glances at it on his shelf. He was so involved that I became interested as well. Hell, I even think about going back to school to get my Masters in Anthropology/Archaeology with a focus on Latin American Indigenous Cultures.
So while I was shooting away at this very important location, it appears as though out of all my shoots, my memory card decided to crap out on this one. So while I normally do posts in large format, this one will be normal because I had to screenshot the corrupted files in Lightroom to get anything.
So after 14 hours of trying to recover corrupted files, this one is for you dad (sorry it isn’t perfect but neither am I – so I guess this fits?):
P.S. There are no pics of the actual ruins because they are nazis that won’t let you take pictures outside – only video and I had to pay extra after arguing that my camera does video as well.
