Mexico City 2017

Ok folks, so it has been a while since I last posted, but I will say that I have been busy.  This post will contain images I shot while I had some free time in Mexico City, Mexico.  I was invited to attend a 100th birthday party.  I didn't get to shoot that because there were other photographers there. I will say that the total free time I had to explore and shoot was about an hour.  I decided this will be a good time to attempt some street photography.  I shot mostly everything with my Canon 5D Markiii with a Canon 24-70mm/f2.8 lens.  The mobile shots were with my Samsung Galaxy S8+

Looking out my hotel room, I saw this massive building on the ground and then something that looked like a Canon 70-200 mm lens. So after breakfast, I went down and walked to the Auditorio Nacional.  After speaking some Spanish and asking for someone that spoke English, I found out that this was a Canon promotion, #MiLenteCanon where they would allow people to take pictures with a Canon camera with the different lenses they had on display.  From what I remembered seeing was that the lenses ranged from 24-70mm, 70-200mm, 50mm, and a fisheye lens. Due to the time crunch I didn't get to test any lenses.  Don't worry folks I am still kicking myself for not testing one.

Outside of the steps of the Auditorio Nacional contained special paved bricks of artists that performed there.

The next day, after the party, I had breakfast and had about 45 min to kill before I needed to be at the airport.   While waiting for everyone to check out I captured this magazine stand outside of my hotel and created a 3 shot 1 stop exposure composition HDR shot.

After checking out of the hotel, My good friend took me to Paseo de la Reforma. 

On our way there and stuck in traffic I captured this image of a Piñata stand.

On Sundays the streets near the Paseo de la Reforma are closed to allow people to bike skate or just walk the streets.
