20171019: Churches of San Juan de los Lagos, poster

Yes, like any place there are many churches here, so I did a poster of some of them.20171018 San Juan Churches_AFB

Most of the tourists only see the main one, so these are a few of the others with a view less seen of the Main “Saint” Church in the center.

20171015: Fiesta San Juan Poster… #1

OK, so I worked into the wee hours, got some sleep and was back at it a couple hours later.

Fiesta San Juan de los Lagos, Jal MX.

Just the few of the photos, But the fast eye of the newspaper Photo editor in use here, & a little skill on the computer.

1pm local time Sunday, I was sell this poster on the streets… (meta data on the last frame shot was 10:05pm Saturday. Not too bad for a one man operation.)

With 1100 frames to review slower, I am sure I will use other photographs & maybe do another poster.

20171014: Timing is everything!

2017 Bimbo Pan Senor_02_FB

Yesterday, this Bimbo Pan man stopped to make his usual delivery to the Hamburguesa Stand, my manager of the new apartment.

He walked over and looked at some of my posters & photos on display. Since he could speak a little English & i get away with and even tinier bit if Spanish he told me he wanted a nice photo of him with his truck.

He then started talking of wanting the local river front for it but he was looking at my night scenes.

The night before I had taken a walk & seeing the reflection of the3 bridge in the river which is still quite full.

I pulled out the cellphone and  shot 2 frames of the reflection.

So I showed him those 2 frames and he just “Wow! Yes, I want me & my truck in front of that!”

So while he did the bread delivery I grabbed a camera & external flash and just before he drove off, I shot a couple quick frames of him & the truck. I showed him what I had shot and again he was happy with it.

Today he came by to do his delivery & I showed him the combined image, one framed as you see here & one without a frame.

He chose this one, so I will get him a print & in the next day or two of deliveries I will have the finished product for him…

So yes, I am slowly winning the hearts & eyes of these people as more & more are coming by & seeing what I can do for them.

Timing is everything, as any photographer knows, CAPTURE THE MOMENT!
