Last September I was invited by an Agency of the Andalusia Regional Government to take part in a collective exhibition held in Seville to commemorate the European Mobility Week 2014.

I've been invited again, now in the city of Granada, to a new edition of the show: [TRÁNSITOS GRX]. Some fellow photographers from the previous show and some new ones join forces in this show on sustainable urban mobility and its power to shape and transform the cities we live in.

A group of 10 Spanish photographers take part on it with different series of 5 images.

"Levada".

The show "Pasión y Duende del Caballo Andaluz" at The Royal Mews of Córdoba (Andalusia, Spain) is magnificent. The andaluz horse (from Arab ancestors) is a most fascinating animal.
Here classical horsemanship and high school are practiced.

Can't recommend enough this show if you visit Córdoba in  Andalusia (Spain).

Think I'll follow +Andy Spencer's recommendation.

“In No Great Hurry” follows the photographer Saul Leiter, who created painterly images of New York in color, when black and white still ruled.

Yesterday I was invited to be interviewed at Mundo 2.0 in the radio show "Hoy por Hoy Madrid Norte" from SER Madrid Norte station. We talked about photography, Origami Collective and how do I face the challenge of telling stories from behind a camera.

You can read more and listen to the podcast (Spanish) in my blog.

Seriously considering it. I'm all eyes and ears :)
 
Running around with the TCL-X100 teleconverter on the X100T in the hopes of getting a review online before we leave. Since there aren't any flowers, leaves are the next best thing! :)

+Rafael García Márquez We've had so little time that I couldn't get together enough material for a review. I'll try again once we're in the UK. :)

First shots of the year.
Morning walk to stretch legs and lens. An attempt to find my mojo. Kind of elusive later.
I thought it was me not getting used to the X100T, but it's just that I needed some rest.

Transfered to my #Nexus4  and edited on +Snapseed (monochrome) and VSCOcam from +VSCO

A new addition to my photography library.
I just couldn't help buying this book edited in 2007 by the regional government of Castilla y León with the work from the great photographer Català-Roca shot in this region of Spain in the late 60's and early 70's.
It's amazing how these urban and rural landscapes are so close in time and so far already from our daily lives nowadays.
Landscapes from my childhood.

Story
Tagline
Crossing paths with stories, lights and shadows in half a heartbeat.
Introduction
My name is Rafa García and I'm an engineer managing the IT Global Services department at Telefónica On The Spot Services.

I did not see it coming. Photography just caught me by the guts. From my first shots with a Kodak Instamatic 25 when I was just a child to now it's been a long road. A lot still to happen. In the mean time I enjoy the ride.

I can hardly put into words what I aim when I take my camera to my eye. I'm looking for images that show what happens in front of us every day, to show the fragility of those moments that will be gone before we notice. Stories, light and shadows, nothing less.

I shoot Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Fujifilm X-100T right now. Never owned SLR or DSLR gear before starting shooting X-Series.
Always shot compact cameras before. Keen of Ricoh compacts, and specially of my beloved Ricoh GX200.
