Beautiful and extremely talented Latino and Latino-American actors. Because let’s be real here, Latino men don’t get nearly as much love, representation, nor opportunities in films and TV as they deserve. Give Latino men more leading roles, dammit. Consider this a long overdo appreciation post. Happy Hispanic Heritage Month 2017!

an evening visit to the mount, as it was evening (sunset timed at 9:20) the roads to the site where clear unlike in the morning. this was a magical sight with just enough clouds to give interest. Eagle eyed flickerists will point out that a full moon to the west is some what impossible. At this angle the moon should be a new moon on it’s back. Ok hands up the moon was out that night but behind me, so I threw a rope and dragged it around the sky………….with a little help from photoshop.
