Photographer's Note

500th, second anniversary and last one.



Perhaps some of you could think that for celebrate this photo I should post something “spectacular”, but I prefer post this photo.

First, Quintanilla del Coco (if you follow my photos you’ll understand why I do).
Second, in this photo we can see a few details that I consider very interesting for me and for this photo.

The light.
The street.
The wet floor with the light reflected.
The rainbow.
That woman crossing the street.

This scene looks very natural, but at the same time is, for me, powerful.
But... but I see the photo and I feel that something is turning off... but the times goes by and everything will be the same again.

That’s the life.

The best that I can offer to TE (the best that I have could offer) has been... myself.
I mean that everyone of us have a different vision of the world and I’ve liked offer mine to you.

Because we talk about the world through ourselves, aren’t we?

Well, is not the moment for a long text.

How did I meet TE for first time?
It was in 2004 year. And after discover TE I needed more time for “understand” what was TE.
In 2004 I take part of the Paralympic Games, in Athens. I was part of the coach staff.

And... how can it be important?

Very easy.
The reason why is important is... a woman.
She was gorgeous. She was wonderful. And she was from Lavrio, a Greek city.
I meet her during the Games, in Athens.
And when I came back to Barcelona I wanted to find out more things about her. And, then, also I looked for her born-city.

Then, this woman and Lavrio were the key.


Once I’ve said it, I must say that only there are a few pictures from Lavrio.
And one of them, the best one that I’ve seen, a large panoramic photo, has been deleted.

That’s the story.


Only I can add that time after I decided to begin what has been a long story with all of you. And today is the second anniversary of the beginning of this long story.


I hope you like it.


(thanks to all of you)

(if you see that the number of photos don’t arrive at 500 is because once I’ve arrived until the 500th photos I’ve deleted three photos that cannot be posted without permission of the place where they were taken... but I didn’t know until I worked there)
