A Lot of Concrete? I recently went to Buenos Aires with high expectations, which were successfully filled. I was told that there were many buildings, a city very city, lost horizon between buildings, avenues and, again, a lot of concrete.

However, it is a beautiful city with friendly people, beautiful places and beautiful parks. It has a great artistic and musical proposal; a very good option to visit in the South of South America.

I give you these two photographs I took while I was there, they are not a touristic view of the city, rather they are the product of the photographs that were dancing in my mind.

The Drums of San Juan. This photo was taken in a national holiday that takes place in La Guaira, Vargas State, Venezuela. Vargas said State is where it’s the country’s main airport, Caracas Simon Bolivar International Airport. (30 minutes from Caracas)

It’s a party in which you are paying homage to San Juan, religious festivals for devotees and for those who want to go, many people of all ages on the streets. The main attraction is “the drums of San Juan”.

Local play drums all day, everybody drinks, dance, enjoy and children are looking forward to the day when they can play drum rhythms in the streets.

When you come to Venezuela, let me know and we can go to take a swim in the waters of the Caribbean town of San Juan.

Public Bus in Caracas, Venezuela. This 4 photographs are the result of a 30 minutes trip in a public bus in Caracas, if you notice, the Venezuelan think a lot. (politicians, economics, insecurity, lack of opportunities, Christmas, etc)

Just as a curious tip, the bus ticket in Caracas is regulated and costs 9BsF (nine bolivares Fuertes), that will be 15 cents of a dollar or 10 cents of an euro.

These three photographs are from an specific day. It was the day that I went to pick up one of my square photos, after being rejected by the jury of an exhibition that I wanted to be a part of.  In this specific moment I was waiting for the bus to get in, and my photograph was laying by this beautiful tree.

When you don’t get chosen for the exhibition, you have to pick up your “piece of art” in a 15 days maximum. If you leave it, they can do whatever they want with it.

Obviously I went to pick it up, because I like it a lot. If I don’t have this love for my photo, who is going to have it??

The photograph is wrapped, so in this post we are not be able to see it. Maybe a little forward ☺.

Similitude between images. Since some time ago I always carry my camera with me, I try to keep for me the things that I am interested in. Sometimes I realize that some of the pictures that I make, has some similarities and that I am interested in lines, grays scale and textures.

Apparently we take the photo that we are interested in, based in some personal interest that we got to discover.
