Deja Vu

I like photos of the same places but at different times, it’s like documenting the time over a little piece of the earth, I’ve done this a couple of times and well… its cool actually…  like this in ’06 and this back in ’07… did someone moved that bench? and what about those cranes?… I remember takin this photo while on a World Press Photo exhibition…

same place, Norman Foster exhibition, a couple of years after…

same place but different angle…

yes, I did a shot like this one too years ago… same place…

no, this shot is completely new, I don’t see the point in taking a photo of your son in a fountain… anyway…

I guess this photo would’ve turned out better if it was totally vertical, but well, sometimes you don’t have the time to perfectly compose your photos, specially not in street…

at the Norman Foster exhibition… a scale model from the Reichstag…

another scale model but from Beijing’s airport…

at the museum where the exhibition was held… just walking around and observing…

I really don’t know if that thing is comfortable.

Something that gets me mad, kids “working” in the streets… my father had to go through that too when he was young…

contrast… kids working for money to bring home… one block away, people throwing away money buying latest fashion stuff, plain luxury, just to gain some social status…

Nuns… they always get me in a good mood…

I think they noticed me… nah!…

drinks and snacks…

Tlaquepaque… nice place to just walk around, have lunch, go shopping…

uncomfortable couple moment…

Ajijic… every time I go there to visit my grandparents I go take a walk… just the best thing you could do there…

My cute little nephew Paula!!

Isn’t she beautiful??

by the lake…

nice place to enjoy some Coronas!

it was my father’s birthday so we went get some breakfast, take a walk and just chill a little bit…

taking a nap in public makes you an easy target…

Paula and my dad…

fishing lessons…

again… kids working… it sucks and gets me mad!

ahhhh love love love… I have to admit that is a cool place to hang out with your significant other…

dam… leap forward to christmas time… my cousin Israel and his french gf Marine… this is at the top of the Cerro del Cubilete which is said to be just in the middle of all Mexico…

my sister and my brother taking photos… my brother just bought an E-P1 and he seems to enjoy the ease of use the camera brings…

Montse, my little cousin with Marine’s dog… she’s super sweet, always smiling and that stuff…

nice hat and cool camera…

Israel and Marine again… he was so curious about the AE-1P, not that you see those cameras these days…

the view from the top of the mountain…

the remains of the farmer’s market…

learning to play a song…

arriving?… again… same place as this photo…

waiting for something maybe…

dunno… maybe an Elliott Erwitt tribute? I love his work with dogs…

more dogs…

very friendly ones actually!

good ol’ cowboy…

coffee…

just sneaking through open windows…

cute, isn’t he?…

I think this was the first real post in a while… good lord, the space between some shots on these rolls might be months! I need to take out that camera more often!… I still have some shots from the Holga I’ll be posting soon. So keep an eye for them!

Cheers!
