(Note that I have delayed the Critique-a-shot column this week due to my trip. It should be out in a couple of days.)

Cuidad del Este, or Electronics City, has strange business hours as stores open at 6:00 and close at 17h in the afternoon. Most of employees cross the border from Brazil and do so by hiring one of the thousands taxi motorcycle available. It was probably the case of this girl waiting in front of customs  for a ride to her job. As for the man below, business did not seem to captivating that day and gave him some time to test a new way to sleep on a hammock.  (click on pictures to enlarge)

  1. The second photo is a classic and well spotted.

  2. Excellent both in terms of compositions and moment. The girl has a powerful look that you have well caught and composed with the wallframe.

  3. Two great shots! Like the photo of the girl very much. The way she raises her left eyebrow is gorgeous and quite arrogant.
