Rediscovered Negatives: Los Colores de Coahuila

Piedras Negras, Coahuila, March 2000

Two things that are the mark of a real man, whether in Mexico or Texas, are cowboy boots and hats.  I chanced upon this shop in Piedras Negras a decade ago, but was unsatisfied with the snapshot I got back from the drugstore.

As it turned out, they didn't know how to print from Kodak's Vericolor III film.  I finally scanned the negative recently, and found the images turned out quite beautiful.
