My name is Marianne. I was born, raised and currently reside in Mexico City, a chaotic as well as interesting City.
One of my hobbies is photography, and this is the reason I started this blog: to share what I photograph during my travels outside and inside Mexico or about anything that catches my attention in my daily world. So this is essentially a photo blog. I’m especially interested in travel photography, street photography, architectural photography, art, nature, and cultural diversity,
I named my blog “Exploring the world”, having in mind the idea of exploring it by images, not by words. For this reason, I generally post only photographs, although I sometimes write about the places I travel to, but not too often. I prefer my photographs to talk about the world.
My enthusiasm for photography started in my childhood when my parents gave me as a Christmas present my first camera, an Instamatic 101 Kodak Camera that I usually took to my school to photograph my friends as well as my daily life, but I guess that essentially the reason for my approach to photography was that when I was a child my father usually carried his camera around and was always taking photographs. Nevertheless, I got seriously involved in photography as a teenager when my dad gave me his Canon TX camera, a manual 35 mm SLR. Back then, I joined a photography workshop at my high school, where I learned lab techniques, and some others at the Argentinean House of Culture in Mexico City. I will always remember that experience as a great adventure that made me really happy.
I have used the same Canon TX camera since back then until 2012 when I got into a new adventure: digital photography. An adventure that I want to share with you, so I hope you will join me “exploring the world” in this photo blog.
