Phodographer Allison Hillis in Zunil, Guatemala, July 2009
The gifts of Dog Meets World continue to accumulate for those on both sides of the camera. Allison stated “I enjoyed the permissive opportunity DMW gave to take pictures of Mayans – I’ve always been conservative with that on previous visits to Guatemala so have lots of pictures of architecture instead. It’s great to have had the chance to add so many colorful pictures of beautiful people to my Guatemala.”
Best Foto of the Week!
