After a 26 hours trip back from Argentina, we are finally back to my hometown for a one week stop. It is quite a strange feeling to go from a million+ city to a small town of 5'000. In terms of street photography, it also feels quite strange to come back to a place one knows inside out after a whole youth spend in its streets. Do you photograph the familiar, or are one's eyes able to detect what makes it different ? The shot below shows the impression you get when you enter the town at time. The six...

Elections are only weeks away and the streets of Rosario are invaded by partisans lobbying for their candidates. Though some younger ones won't influence the outcome of this one, they might result decisive in a few years. (click on picture to enlarge) Leica M9 with 35mm Lux Asph at F8.0, 1/500, ISO160

As we reach our final weekend in Rosario, it came to my mind that very few of my pictures actually showed how the city looks like. This slideshow portrays downtown Rosario and all the activity that comes with it. Pay attention to details, as you know, I always try to give my picture a street photography spin ;)  Click here or on picture to launch slideshow.

As you might have noticed, it has been some time that I haven't written a Critique-a-shot column. Indeed, I have been very busy with trips and other stuff going on here in Argentina. I intend to keep it going, but given that the core part of the trip is coming up soon, I'll decrease the frequency of posting and limit it to one picture by post. This week's shot comes from a place which I know pretty well, that is Austin, home of the University of Texas (I studied for a year at its rival university, that is A&M). It...
