…if you agree to be my company… mhhh… yeah, I like to sing at the beginning of my posts, I just don’t know how to give them a title, and songs like this one are cool… go check out Colour, they added me on myspace a long time ago and the first time I listened to them I was left jaw left wide open… unfortunately they disbanded lie a year ago or something, that made me so sad… anyway…

I’ve been posting a lot of stuff with the Holga and digital, and the AE-1P was a little left behind but I’ve been taking it with me lately… it’s just a beautiful camera, it has been with me since I can remember…

I shot colour this time… something like Kodak Gold 400, super cheap film but well… it’s okay if you can’t get anything better right? I just hate the fact that I have this cheap scanner which works awful with colour film…

He’s Mario a.k.a. “Pelon” he plays the drums with Yucatan a go go, funny shit…

Johnny and Mario, both drummers… musician’s best friends (stupid joke, I know)…

Sammy and Mally… best friends…

It was a nice day for a walk in the park… holy week times so everyone thought the same…

you know, just the average kissing couple…

Mally fell in love with this dog… awesome buddy actually!

…he was just all around finding new friends…

This old man was just sitting there on his own listening music and watching people pass by… dunno… a beautiful scene…

more couples…

nice day for a picnic too…

more cliché scenes from a beautiful day in the park…

There were no playgrounds like these in my childhood! that thing looks like lots of fun!

Mally seemed a little bit envious…

taking dogs for a walk… you know… more average stuff I don’t do…

Johnny… we were heading to Zihuatanejo…

I want candy!! … sorry… I have to do it… enjoy it!

Hot dogs, Hamburgers and Tacos… the average late night stuff…

Drug stores… they are always so colorful and look so cool at night

Mally tweeting… she just doesn’t get it yet… dunno why!!

I went to Jalisco just to get away and disconnect from everything… it felt so nice…

this is my father at Mazamitla… a little town in the middle of the forest…

my grandparents…

You know I have this fetish thing for religious stuff…

Already in Ajijic in my parents’ little bungalow… they rent it for retired people who come from the States, Canada or even Europe to spend winter in here… some of them stay there all year long…

My mother and Grandmother on Mother’s day…

Horse riding in Ajijic… it’s been a long time since the last time I did it…

These new generations seem to be one with technology!!… ha!

Some random street stuff…

chatting on the street…

there must have been something interesting inside…

this street leads to the lakeside…

looking inside places…

maybe the grandson of a retired american couple… who knows!

Chapala Lakeside…

…plus…

…equals…

…she just lift that fish up and turn up to me… instant click on the shutter…

Girls…

…and Boys…

3 points for him…

General view of the lake side…

…after playing basketball he just sit there, some water, shadow and rest…

back in the streets…

can you see the Virgin Mary images??… sooo cool!

… not a beggar… just sitting there…

yeah, I have a thing for alleys too…

Next day went to the farmer’s market…

if there’s no clients what better to do than read the newspaper?

or take a nap…

maybe it’s better just to wait…

selling time??…

traditional music it’s an important piece in these kind of markets…

this is in Guadalajara… went to have dinner with my aunt and cousin…

getting the table ready… some pasta, wine and salad!…

My brother and Paula, my cousins daughter… she used to be afraid of cameras… now she seems to love them!

Back to Mexico City on the way to the lab…

they liked that dress I guess…

an important part of all our lives… texting!!…

…and waiting…

God!… I don’t know why it took me so long to do this post… the photos were ready since more than a week ago… guess I’m not in the mood… could you tell it??… anyway… I’m glad I had the chance to go out and shoot this much… more than I’ve done in a while!!… I’ll go and shoot more now that I have the time…

whatever… it’s hot, I need a glass of cold water!… later lads!
