16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
"Where Everyone Is Family"
This photo was taken in a taco shop in the city of Monterrey, in Mexico, one of the servers was prepping tortillas when he turned his back to me and I saw a photo op. In Mexico, a lot of small businesses are family-owned, and often they are decorated with framed photographs, paintings, religious figurines and such, alongside welcoming slogans, this to make the people feel a bit more like home.
