I have returned for a long weekend in Buenos Aires and will post the pictures of this outing over the coming days. The city is absolutely great for street photography, offering so many different settings and a vibrant atmosphere. I plan to visit a lot more in the coming months and maybe work on a dedicated series. I took my Leica M8 and tiny 35mm Summicron IV for this trip. Indeed, I wanted a combo that would not attract any unwanted attention and represent too much of a loss if stolen (well, this is obviously said in relative terms). Buenos...

After a three hours drive from Rosario, we find ourselves in Buenos Aires for the weekend. Luckily, our ride was a bit more comfortable that the one this lady had to endure. I won't post any pictures taken here until Monday since I opted to travel without a computer. Also, I will meet a talented local street photographer tomorrow, more to come about this soon too. Leica M9 with 50mm Summicron at F2.0

If you are located in France or plan to travel there this month, you can discover my article "Street photography in colors" ("La photo de rue en couleurs")  in the April issue of Phototech Magazine. The journalist did a great job of enhancing the interview with many anecdotes on Street photography.  So don't hesitate, finding a kiosk in France is the next easiest thing after a bakery. Obviously, some knowledge of French will definitely help, though evidently, pictures can also do the talking.

This week, we head North to Reading, England, to discover this sho(r)t story by Darran Roper. (click on picture for high res) Nikon D90 with 18-200mm Short story This shot was taken in the summer whilst out with my family. The picture shows a scene on the grounds of a stately home in England. The sun had broken through the clouds, the rays were piercing the leaves of the trees. The light and the shade seemed to be dancing on a very light breeze. That was a wake up call to disengage from conversation and feel the moment.  I looked immediately to my left and...
