    Hello friends, I have Followed the forum recently, since I came back from NY, I have not stopped working here in my country, I have so many projects in mind that I been busy lately but want to share some shots I've done in Cuetzalan, "the magic town". Cuetzalan is a small town set high in the hills in the north of the Mexican state of Puebla , 183 kilometers from Puebla , the state capital. I lived in NY for a while but now have returned to my country again I have had the fortune to travel widely in different communities and learn more about our mexican culture. Despite the compact size of the nex5R/nex 7 I think is a big plus because I can go unnoticed in the streets and markets, and can walk several miles without complaint about overweight.

    Cuetzalan offers an spectacular mosaic integrating the exuberant subtropical vegetable proposal with its falls and its water sources; it also offers its surprising geologic structure, its remote past and its traditions which are recalled in clothes, in celebrations and rites surprising. This tiny town surrounded by a tropical forest filled with waterfalls, grottos, archaeological site, colonial buildings as churches and coffee plantations also has like characteristic the existence of an endless number of underground caverns. Although the majority of them are not accessible to the public, these caves have stirred up the interest of national and foreign investigators.Most of its population is from the Nahuatl culture that still preserve their customs and traditions. So I started wearing the nex5R, everywhere, my main lens is the Jupiter-8 50mm f2 and Industar-69 28mm though the Sel35mm f1.8 fascinates me, the tones in B / W that produce these Russian lenses are phenomenal.

    well friends from the magic town of cuetzalan, I keep sharing more photos of here, for now I am very happy with these two cameras, I'll start saving for 7r.

    Hey Freddy, welcome back. I've been wondering when you'd crawl out from under the rock you've been hiding under. ;)

    Great stuff here. thanks for a glimpse of places I'll never see otherwise. :)
