Door - Santiago, Mérida, Yucatán

There are many old colonial-stile homes in the Centro Histórico of Mérida, Yucatán that have been renovated by extranjeros (foreigners), but the often abandoned or still occupied homes of the local people offer a glimpse of the former splendor of this historical city. The changing colors of many of the homes, over decades, have faded and blended into the soft tropical colors of the Yucatán.  It is these architectural details that I choose to photograph.

The city of Mérida, having realized the significance of the historical center, in the past few years has begun a revitalization program that offers assistance to home owners in the renovation of the facades of their homes, and most recently has announced a plan to repair the crumbling sidewalks throughout the center.
