Two years ago we were in the city where it never rains, that is Lima. Lovers sit on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. (click on picture for high res)

A few days ago, I posted a picture about a dancing father. Well, this shot was taken a couple of minutes later from the same spot. Different angle, B&W processing and a completely different mood to it. It might very well depict an apocalyptic scene.

Street photography is often said to be documentary. Lately, I have had my doubts about it. Or maybe it just documents what is in the head of a photographer in a given moment of time.   (click on picture for high res)

Sometimes you shoot a celebrity without knowing. Looking back at my archives this weekend, I was stuck by the resemblance of this girl with Kaley Cuoco of the Big Bang Theory. What do you think? Kaley or not Kaley ?

Note that the picture was taken in London in July 2009 and was originally posed on my former blog. A street photographer unawarely just turned a paparazzi, shame on me!  (click on picture for high res)

Since Pope Fransisco was elected to take the head of the Catholic Church, a wind of change is blowing. The whole organization has been asked to loosen up and be closer to the people everyday life. So much, that a local father was bold enough to improvise a little swing during the pilgrimage to San Nicolas. (click on picture for high res)
