Gallery of Pictures of Panama’s Calle Peatonal


These are some of the picturesque shops that flank the Pedestrian Street in Panama City’s Old Shell.  In a split of a second, I was able to capture these old structures to allow future generations to see what was once the Pedestrian Street.

Regardless of fires, earthquakes, or greedy urban development, these buildings will be here for as long as WordPress operates.  There lies the wonder of photography—freezing time forever.  Stopping the clock—that’s what it’s all about.

This will be the final blog post on the neighborhood of Santa Ana and its nostalgic Calle Peatonal.  It’s time to move on to other subjects.  Enjoy!

    This has been an enjoying and rewarding achievement. As you know, my goal was to preserve in digital form, the buildings of Calle Peatonal for future generations. The goal was achieved. I feel very satisfied to have accomplished this commitment with History.

    I feel very happy that you have enjoyed the series. We all know how much you cherish the history of Texas in your stories. We are on the same page.

    Yes, I’m familiar with the song Tico-Tico. It is excellently played by this Spanish artist.

    Bye,

      I’m satisfied for having accomplished this series of photographs. It was a project worth undertaking.

      My next project is traveling to the countryside to capture the lifestyle of our hard-working farmers. These people are also being drastically affected by urban development. Many of them are selling their land and migrating to the cities to live with their grown-up sons or daughters.

      My wife will be my guide, since she was born in the area where I will be taking my pictures. The town is Aguadulce in the Province of Coclé.

      Good Day,

      Omar.-
