Happy New Year to y’all!! Geez, 2009 finally ended! I don’t want to be negative, but I can’t remember of much good things that happened this year, except maybe for some great concerts, meeting cool people, great parties, and that’s about it. But hey, 2010 is here and I’m embracing it and looking forward for an amazing year full of good stuff, hell yeah!

Well, I spent the holiday in my hometown Guadalajara, I wanted to go there for a while so bad, all my family is there and I’ve had the most amazing feasts there, really, food there is always so yummy!

This is in the small town of Ajijic, a lot of people from the States and Canada go there at their retirement, and that’s where my grandparents live. I went out to shoot with the AE-1 and this is one of the few frames I did with the DSLR. I will post the rest as soon as I develop them.

There was a concert at downtown Guadalajara, I must say it was a beautiful one, almost drove me to tears, really, nice selection with music by Brahms, Mozart, Marcos Lifshitz, Gioachino Rossini, Tchaikovsky and more.

This was on our way to the concert.

Lots of chinese restaurants everywhere!

Photos with Santa.

People looking for a better view at the concert.

Fireworks at the end. I suck at taking nice fireworks photos…

There was fake snow too!!

Walking around…


I like hats.

Such a lonely light.

Jorge Matute Remus, amazing what he did! You go and read that link.

Nothing really…

Just downloaded Silver Efex Pro demo and loved it! But $200 usd for it?? I really don’t know… that’s the cost of Aperture! Anyway I liked it.

That’s my brother an my cousin Montse.

Guess she couldn’t wait for New Year’s dinner.

New Year’s dinner being made.

Ready for dinner!

My aunt cooking some amazing Pozole.

She did some Horchata aswell.

One of my favourite places in Guadalajara is the Expiatory Temple, Amazing gothic architecture.

Maybe waiting for a miracle??

It’s all about faith.

Express manicure anyone?

She shared her lunch with the doves.

I liked  the Tin-tan and Atom Ant stickers


Yesterday I received my new Holga, it’ll be a lot of fun to shoot with it, can’t wait. Now, I have to go get some 120 film and get those rolls from the AE-1 developed!

Well that’s it for now, I’ll be posting more this year, promise!
