The cemeteries in Guatemala are painted in technicolor – bright and vibrant hues of every sort.  To get the shot, I set up on the abstract shapes, lines, and boxes of color I wanted, and then I waited for a human element.

This is a great way to shoot travel images – pick out the background you like and then wait.  Works for animals too, now that I think about it.   In this case, I really like that my guy seems to be smiling.
