A man with a cap & the legs

A man with a cap & the legs

Jubilado desde hace años, tranquilo, despreocupado por el futuro. Se sienta a descansar después de un largo paseo, sin importarle dónde. Observa a la gente pasar, y las hermosas piernas de su compañera ya no son objeto de su deseo, o al menos ya no de la misma manera que años atrás. Se encuentra a gusto, porque con los años ya no tiene prisa, tampoco miedo…

Retired several years, quiet, unconcerned about the future. He sits down to rest after a long walk, no matter where. He watches people going, and his companion’s beautiful legs are no longer object of his desire, or at least not in the same way when he was younger. He feels at ease, because through the years he is in no hurry, not afraid of anything.

Cleaner life

Cleaner life

Mirada cansada, rutina diaria, acostumbrada a quitar la mierda de los viandantes descuidados. Su momento del día: la limpieza en la calle, donde su trabajo es una fuente de estímulos. Ha pillado a un fotógrafo mientras se apoyaba en el palo de la fregona; distracción momentánea. Pero toca seguir…

Tired look, daily routine, used to remove shit from careless pedestrians. Her moment of the day: the street cleaning, where her job is a source of stimuli. She has caught out a photographer while she was leaning on the mop stick; momentary distraction. But she must go on…

The Circus Game

Circus by me.

A deliberated copy of Sanxo‘s original.

My first entry in this blog is the last picture I have uploaded to Flickr. I choose also Sanxo’s last upload. We live in Castellón (Spain), a small mediterranean city.

Sanxo was exhibiting with me on March and, since then, we are collaborating in a project to made, the Street Photography genre, more popular between our fellow citizens. We are not Cartier-Bressor or Robert Frank but our enthusiasm about our city is great for this purpose. So, we have created a Facebook page to encourage people to follow us and we made our best to engage them by posting one of our best photos each week.
