Photographer's Note

The chaplain of Santa Maria Chautempan, an abandoned convent near Puebla city, guides the few visitors, takes care of the place and tolls the bells for mass. He invited us to follow him up, through a very narrow round-walk (Franciscan monasteries in Mexico reproduced the architecture of Medieval European fortresses), and through a steep stairway. In the top the sound from the two century old brass bells was overwhelming, but the spectacle beautiful.
Tech: brought down the ISO to 80, moved to speed mode and set it for around half a second, all in a few seconds. Lamented not having an 40 year old Leica rangefinder.
