Efímero corazón (ephemeral heart)

HPIM4006_DxO-XL

This is an oldie, I took it six years ago with a compact HP digital camera with a fantastic Carl Zeiss lens. Since then I love Carl Zeiss lenses. It’s in my hometown Juliaca, the train was crossing the Maravillas river and it looked as an scene from a century ago so I took the pics and from three it was my favourite.

I processed the jpeg archive but now I see that I used so much noise reduction. But anyway the photograph looks great to my eyes and, as an amateur, I couldn’t ask more. If it make me happy and it don’t hurt others then I don’t care if another guy thinks different.

Today I took photos with a broken film camera, tomorrow it gets to the lab so I hope there will be any worth to show here ;-)

La Paz, from midday to dusk (b)

I like to wait the moment. I see something or some action in the near future that I think deserves to be recorded, so I wait… I prepare my old Sony R1, gently I handle it like a medium format camera with a waist level viewfinder, the zoom is manual so quietly I graduate it to the exact point I want it. The moment is coming: there is nothing between me and the image I see in my mind.

Inhale. My hands take the weight of the camera anticipating the shot.

Exhale. In the last second I am ready, I take just one shot and nothing more.
