Elections and harbor - Minolta Autocord

Post by Julio1fer » Sat Oct 12, 2019 5:15 pm

This year we have elections in October 27th, and likely again at the end of November. The way they do it here is with flags, banners and a kind of general carnival on the streets. Hopefully more pictures to come in the following weeks.

A bus parked near the Rambla, in a strategic place so that everybody sees it. Totally painted in the candidate's color (red), Maybe you can tell the candidate's name and option number.

Militants are on the streets every weekend, distributing brochures on traffic lights.

Last week I took the Autocord to Punta del Este harbor, taking advantage of a trip to show the place to a friend. This is a favorite part of the world, especially in the low season. Subjects galore: not only fishing boats (which would be enough for me), but fishermen, seagulls, seafood stalls and people.

I had not used this TLR for a long time. Film was TMX, developed in Beutler.

Thanks for looking!

The one with the seagulls is very pleasing!
Good luck in the elections

Very nice photos, Julio, as said the last one has something special :)
I miss the sea but at least I can feel with your photos :)

Thanks for the comments! Another one of seagulls in this roll:

Better to stay above these nice birds than below.

Oh yes - the seagulls really add to the photo. I also like the composition with the women in the photo.

Beautiful photos again, Julio. You're starting to find different looks as you roam the waterfront.

I once thought of moving to Norfolk to be near the sea, but the problem is the sea is also moving into Norfolk because of the double whammy of ocean level rise, and land subsidence. If I live long enough, I'll be able to cut the travel time to the ocean to two hours instead of five!
