Mazatlán-A Working City



I think that a tourist might select a different scene to represent Mazatlán--probably sea, sand, and surf with some night life added, but I believe that a citizen might think of something a bit different. Since it is a working city I chose a returning fishing boat to represent one of its industries.

I like your choice here. Good point, sometimes we forget the behind the scenes while on vacation. And those behind the scenes make for interesting photos.

The day's catch for fine seafood dining. And it has two of my favorite elements, big body of water and a boat!

What a great picture, Kate. I think the locals would agree with your choice, yes.

Happy theme day!

Jim said...

A great picture, boat, water, great views.

Still a beautiful shot...

Olivier said...

un tres bon choix et une tres belle photo. J'espere que tu vas encourager les Giants ;o)

A very good choice and a very beautiful picture. I hope you will encourage the Giants ;o)

Warm greetings from wintry Finland to you, Kate!
Thinking those, who are working there, is very kind. You are such a person, I have noticed it already before.
Have a happy weekend!

isabella said...

Beautiful photo! You're right, I would not think of it as representative...but I bet you eat a lot of fresh seafood there. Great choice!

Jilly said...

That rock looks pretty amazing! Such a nice photo of a fishing boat. I think of the colours of Mexico (via your blog) when I think of Mazatlan - but that's probably Mexico in general, not specifically the city.

Nathalie said...

Thanks for posting early Kate, it's a pleasure to see this photo. A surprise for me, I didn't expect that sort of scenery in the background. I hope we get to see more landscapes in the future.

Kate your photo of boats dated 28 Jan is just MAGNIFICENT !

I'm back in the CDB ring and participating in the theme day today.

Ham said...

Yay! Good fresh fish!

Gordon said...

This is what is so good about this CDP community - we see things through the eyes of a 'local'. Great choice and nice photo.

Peter said...

Bravo!! I see that you participate for two cities!!

I wish you a nice weekend with nice seafood!

oldmanlincoln said...

I am with you, Kate. This is an impressive photograph, to me, maybe because we have no water deeper than my knees anywhere close.

Keropok Man said...

A great shot to represent a working city!

Have a beautiful February ahead!

Happy Theme Day too!

Lovely setting - the boat against that marvellous cliff face.

For once I'm not running with the theme this month.

Chris said...

Oh, Kate! Que bueno! I love this choice of photos. I have enjoyed seeing your Mazatlan photos and am so jealous!!

Felicia said...

Nice photo Kate. It is interesting because I think you have a predilection for workers...I love your MN workers series and here you've found the heart of the city as well. :)

Rambling Round said...

I wonder what they are bringing home for supper or for sale.

marley said...

Excellent choice, better than a touristy photo. The scene looks beautiful.

Kuanyin said...

Good choice--the REAL world of Mazatlan!

Kuanyin said...

Hmmmm...don't think my last comment was taken...so I'm trying again! Great shot of the real world!

sam said...

great pic, it looks idyllic, even when work is involved!

lynn said...

Looks gorgeous Kate.

Denton said...

Good choice and good photo. I especially like that you represented the local view point.

Southern Heart said...

Nice photo...industry is the foundation of the success of any city.

zentmrs said...

Cool shot Kate. I definitely would think of port things when thinking about Mazatlan. Looking forward to seeing it in person!

Uma por Dia said...

Great choise Kate!

Chuck Pefley said...

ah, the difference between perception and reality. Tourist sees things much differently than a resident. It's all about perspective. Thanks for mentioning that distinction.

Joy said...

That is such a fantastic photo. It's beautiful! I love it! Love the misty look.

Happy Theme Day!
