But only for 2 weeks, then off to the States again.
San Miguel de Allende
I was organizing photos yesterday and came across this image. Shot last year, at the local reservoir in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico.
Enjoying working in color more:)
I happen to love gelato but then again, who doesn't. So, when my good friend/owner of Gelato Dolce Far Niente asked me to take some photos, I was pretty stoked. We had a fun shoot and though the gelato was melting quicker than we could shoot, I think we got some good shots. Here are a few of my favorites...
Thank you Alex!!

I'm so excited to share my interview with Latinos Behind the Lens. Ramon Nuez has a great blog and was so kind to invite me to participate. My sister, Natalie Franco, was just recently interviewed as well. Here is the link and hope you enjoy the read! http://www.latinosbehindthelens.com/nicole-franco-touches-on-the-importance-of-family-and-her-photography/
Generosity, I've come to understand, binds communities together. The labor, the pain and the strength that each day demands is something quite remarkable to witness. Their work, their lives, move around and through each other for survival. The efforts of the day are palpable. And, there's a sense of gratitude that comes with exhaustion and rest. Everytime I leave the campos, I'm always hopeful for a quick return.
As we phase out of November, just wanted to share some images and thoughts. November was a great month here in Mexico. The seasons finally changed and we got a break from the heat:) It was also Dia De Los Muertos; which was a fantastic cultural and visual experience. I also spent more time out in the campo working on a new portrait series about women and the land, as seen in the pic above. Looking forward to Christmas and all celebrations that come with it here in San Miguel de Allende. Thanks for reading. Nic
It's very exciting to see this story come full circle. I received copies in the mail days before my move to Mexico, which really made me smile. Lion magazine did a great job with the spread, to view full story please follow the link, http://mydigimag.rrd.com/publication/?i=126221
