Rosarito Photography

Rosarito Photography

Wedding photographers have to take a break too :D

A good friend of mine, William, asked Julie and I to go to Rosarito last weekend. Having never been there, we consented! We stayed at a beach front house - 4 beds 3 baths. It was awesome! The west side of the house was all glass, which allowed maximum view of the ocean and sunset. My favorite time of the day was the latter - it lent the house a warm yellow glow for a stint. Friends and family all went to Rosarito to celebrate William's sister's birthday - Susan Vong (awesome girl).

Here's a group picture of all of the ladies in Rosarito

Since the patio was connected to the beach and the wind was mild, we sailed kites a lot.

One experience worth noting was horse riding. We made arrangements with the vendor to bring horses to our patio. Riders get to ride along the beach - it was a blast!

After working up an appetite, we had lunch at the world's famous La Fonda of Rosarito Mexico.

I decided to take a picture of the scenic view behind La Fonda Cantina

Helen and Coby (DJ Coby) thought it would be a cool idea to have a romantic sunset photograph. As fast as I tried to get the remote lighting set up, the sun was too quick for me. *glum*

Since Coby and William are DJs, it was nice to have someone cranking tunes all day.

When returning home, it was surprising to see how many shacks stood just slightly inland right next to so many beautiful beach front communities. They were no more than half of a mile apart.

On our way back to the states, vendors would sell food and souvenirs along highways and in between street lanes. We were bombarded for the two hours trying to get past the border. The image below shows a vendor under the San Diego highway sign.

The image below shows various vendors selling food and random goods - "Elotes y Vasitos"

This was my first time to Rosarito, Mexico. It is truly an eye-opening experience. Overall it was a great vacation. I suggest to everyone to visit Mexico. All you need is your driver's license to drive in and out of the border. A passport is only needed if one flies in.

Signing out,

Lawrence
