The Beetles of San Miguel de Allende
An Ongoing Picture Power Project

The Beetles of San Miguel de Allende

The Beetles of San Miguel de Allende: I recently moved to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico and immediately became inspired for this photo series. VW Beetles (or VW Bugs, Vee Dubs) are everywhere in this worldly destination. From the bright and shiny to the barely recognizable, this classic Volkswagen is everywhere.  It seems that no matter what street or alley I walk down, there's another VW just begging me to aim my camera at it.

The classic VW is the most enduring and iconic car ever built. From a photographer's perspective the lines and curves of this beautiful car are hard to ignore.

Here's a sampling of just some of the Volkswagen Beetles pictures I've taken in San Miguel de Allende. I'll be adding more pictures to this post from time to time. If you want to see the much larger collection in this Picture Power series, visit the Picture Power Google Plus page. And keep coming back as new photos are added each week. Maybe even each day.

I'll leave you with some of the beetles of San Miguel de Allende. I'm going out to take more pictures.
