In the artist's own words: “After an evening of strolling through the merchant booths and stores of Playa del Carmen, haggling over prices for a sombrero and other gifts, my family was heading for a cab when this mariachi band marched past, in stride, going the opposite direction. My camera was at a slow shutter speed already because of the darkness so when I clicked the picture – without even aiming the camera – I got this wonderful atmospheric effect.”
