Moorish Influence

Notes: Established around 1533, the city of Uruapan flourished under Spanish and Moorish influence. This is clearly seen in the architecture of this fascinating arcade, which is now the Cultural Center of the historic city.

Love the light. Masterfully captured, Juan. This is real storytelling. Great!

Thank you,Stefan, but I think but I think I was lucky to attend the beginning of the story and its outcome! Passing quickly over there, I could see how that couple was discussing whether they should enter to have coffee in the cafeteria or not. I barely had time to frame and shoot, unable to check if I had selected the right settings on my camera. (I had been shooting in manual mode until the time). Finally, they entered the cafeteria and later I could see them on the platforms, complaining that they had lost their train as it faded into the distance

Another cracker, Juan… Love how you introduce something new with almost every image…

I thank you wholeheartedly for those nice words, Tony, especially coming from someone of whose wonderful photography I try to learn something at every occasion I have!

‘Amazing photo!’

Thank you,César!  I think that it was really helpful that  in the hall of the station there were nobody but the protagonist couple  ’’!

‘I enjoy the gradient of textures of this image’.

César, I really loved it too, whilst I focusing this scene composed somewhat by interesting strips! That’s what led me to opt for the B & W to process this image and highlight more intensely their textures, although I must admit that their colors (ocher saturated in the field green vegetation and bright blue sky) , were really beautiful!

'Texturas, y el cable horizontal esta perfecto entre ellas’.

Buen ojo, Fern ;)! Supongo que ese cable es un elemento imprevisto que añade 'algo de pimienta’ a la imagen …!

'Love the combination of vertical and horizontal lines in this’.

Many thanks, Esra! This is one of those times I would have loved to do the same photo in another moment of the day, which probably would have differently highlighted these grooves. When I shot, it was exactly noon and the light fell perpendicularly upon them, so they just projected no shadow. I guess things like this make us realize that we are more involved in photography … time ago, I would have shot without considering all these variables!

Thanks for your kind compliment: I really appreciate it for coming from someone with a photographic talent like yours!

'Beautiful composition’.

Gracias, César! Me encanta encontrar repeticiones o patrones en los temas que fotografío y aquí fue fácil componer gracias almodo en el que estaban dispuestas las escaleras. Me alegro de que te haya gustado!
