Part of my younger years were spent doing a lot of sports, but I had a thing for gymnastics which I got to practice for six or seven years.
That’s why I felt so happy when I got a call to do a photoshoot before a competition, I was thrilled to do it!
It brought me back to those days when training was hard, so hard you could see your hands peeled off and it didn’t matter, when you get to the point when you challenge your body, when you know you have your limits and still feel the need to try it until you make it right. I must say that gimnastics shaped me a lot into the person I am today.
When I was in there, I felt like if I could I would do it again, then I remembered my physical capacity ain’t the same as it used to…
But it was fun to go back in there with my camera!
Soon! We will be able to watch Boneyard, a documentary on YouTube, which is about four boys that decided to make music, back in the day, we’re talking about late 80’s- early 90’s.
I joined them -camera in hand-, right before the official presentation, at this bar, we shared a couple of beers and good conversation while doing my shots.
These guys have been part of the rock scene for quite some years now, and it can be a struggle to develop any type of art in a country which can be culturally limited. What I do see, is that all these efforts to keep the music history coming forward to new generations, are going to pay off sometime ahead. And it’s a good thing for new generations to see.
It was on a saturday afternoon, our location this time was Cardedeu, a beautiful spot by the Coatepeque Lake -which by the way is one of the beauties of this country-, its well known for its price winning architecture.
That’s the place where John and Dana chose to exchange their vows in this very intimate ceremony organized with their close friends Roberto and Camila.
It was really a touching experience of love, and I thank them for making me part of it.
