I was very depressed the day I took this photo, on top of that the day was cloudy, cold, and VERY windy.

I was not in a good place, I think the photo reflects that.

It is not by any means a perfect photo, but I really think it captures my mood for that day.

Very humbling mention!
Although I understand what you are saying, I guess this is one of the aspects that really depends on who is looking at the photo. I did notice it when I saw it, but it was not in a bad way…I think the photo works the way it is, it captures a serious wisdom from the subject (at least to me that ...

A Monochromatic Affair - Creating a Black and White Imagery (Part 1)
Part 1: Seeing in Black and White If
you know me a little bit as a photographer or if you somehow follow
my work online, you will notice that I have a fascination with
monochromatic images. I think they capture mood in a way that no
color photograph will. I...

Introduction
Welcome to my little corner of the big G+ space!

My name is Rafael Rodríguez-Vargas and I live in Richmond, Texas with my wife Ruth and my daughter Eva. I am originally from Puerto Rico (a little island in the Caribbean) and I graduated from the University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor in Science on Electronics Engineering Technologies.  I currently work as a Telecom Engineer at Meriplex Communications at Houston, TX.

I, like many of you, am just an ordinary guy who loves to do many things but I have very limited time to actually do the things that I really love. I do like many things, mostly concerning different arts.  Things like literature, music, photography, painting, drawing…yeah all that nerdy, geeky stuff that I just really love.  Things that have nothing to do with what I studied or what I do for a living.

I have been writing for a long time, but that is now on hold since I rediscovered the wonderful world of photography.  I have to thank my best buddy Jowei for that.  Im a self-taught "photographer" but by no means I consider myself a professional.  What I do I do it on my spare time and I receive no income from it.

Thanks for reading!!!
