In a few days I will be heading back to Germany, and if plans continue as they are going, it’s pretty probable I won’t be returning to Venezuela for quite some time.
I had a blast shooting in the city, pictures were not as good as I expected but only the adrenaline rush of doing a few picts on the street was worth it. Maybe I got lucky, but manage to escape the city without any issues worth mentioning, besides a few angry pedestrians and a public transportation bus driver who offer me some punches if i didn’t erase a picture of him, bad for him the picture was on film, and bad for me, the picture didn’t came out.
Really sad that shooting in Caracas is so unsafe, considering the vast amount of interesting people and things to be found. We have the greatly known issue of insecurity, and also there is no law as in USA or parts of Europe in which photographers are allowed to shoot in public spaces. I spoke with some policemen on the street and according to them they have never even heard of something like that. And with all the social problems through which my country is going most of the residents are paranoid about a guy taking pictures of them.
Once more thanks to my friend Cristhoferson for coming with me to do the picts. Cannot really say i will be missing the city, but definitely my family and friends will be miss.
As always, comments and critics are highly welcome….thanks for looking. Once more only the Leica M6 plus Voigtlander 28mm 2.0 were used, as film, kodak BW ASA400.
