20180320: yeah, kids are cute all over the world!

A background replacement job. Couple little girls from the apartments kind of next door.

The mother kept asking about getting some photos of the girls. I did not refuse but I think the price was stopping her.

However the other day she brought them down in cute dresses and asked for me to do one photo of each girl separately.

Just a little creative fun. They do not speak an English, but that never stops a child from smiling, boys or girls, if they are getting attention & having fun at it.

20180101 halftone effect on print

Was the halftone effect, there for whatever reason. Enlargement was an issue to solve first.

And the Colorized version.

yeah, I underbid the job… but heck of a sales pitch item for me to use on the potential clients.

20171129 Editing night shots of San Juan

While the view is limited, an artist is always looking for a new angle.

Dia de Muertos night event, the fountain is on, shutter slowed down a little to let the motion show & then the Independence Tower lights to contrast nicely.

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.
