Photographer's Note

Merida, Mexico. In the flat, brilliant sunlight of a hot mid-afternoon, a man relaxes in the shade, watching women go by.

"Girl watching," as it used to be called once upon a time, is not the preserve of the young, and this watcher is no juvenile. He also has catholic tastes, including amongst the objects of his gaze the young and the not-so-young, the beautiful and the ordinary, the lithe and the portly.

In a way, after the relentless youth-and-beauty cult of Anglo America, it's refreshing. Admittedly, though, "refreshing" might not be the first word that springs to mind for the women.

MUSIC TO WATCH GIRLS BY
(Yeah, you definitely want to click the link)
Andy Williams


The boys watch the girls while the girls watch the boys who watch the girls go by
Eye to eye, they solemnly convene to make the scene
Which is the name of the game, watch a guy watch a dame on any street in town
Up and down and over and across, romance is boss

Guys talk "girl talk", it happens everywhere
Eyes watch girls walk with tender lovin' care

It's keepin' track of the fact watching them watching back
That makes the world go 'round
"What's that sound?" each time you hear a loud collective sigh
They're making music to watch girls by

Guys talk "girl talk", it happens everywhere
Eyes watch girls walk with tender lovin' care

It's keepin' track of the fact watching them watching back
That makes the world go 'round
"What's that sound?" each time you hear a loud collective sigh
They're making music to watch girls by

The boys watch the girls while the girls watch the boys who watch the girls go by
Eye to eye, they solemnly convene to make the scene

La la la la la la la la la
