This is a morning view of a sitting room in the Casa Mexilio hotel in Merida, Mexico. It really isn’t as grimy as it looks in this photo. It’s actually quite splendid. But after I applied a light HDR treatment to it I tried to bring out the true antique qualities that it so proudly possesses. I’m sure that all of the objects in this room are priceless artifacts acquired by marauding Conquistadors but I’d never be able to identify them. However, I do appreciate the bright and intricately tiled floors. Very Spanish, very European and dazzling.
