ENTRY #4"City of Champions"San Francisco, Ca. October 2012.Mission Districtphoto by: Rey.

I recall being in Civic Center the final moments the 2012 World Series was winding down. There it was, near ending of a sweep, a 2-2 count from Romo, caught Cabrera looking.
The City, was… in euphoria. I gathered myself to focus knowing that the celebration was going to be bananas. I headed to BART with plans to head to the Mission District to photograph the celebration.
These negatives is a 2-frame sequenced photograph into one. It summarizes the madness and content of a City.

ENTRY #5"M5"England, UK. August 2011.Stonehengephoto by: Rey.

I was coming back to London from Stonehenge after a long days commute and sightseeing of one of the wonders of the world. We were in a slow steady crawl before coming to a complete stop of traffic. I didn’t mind it. I wasn’t in a rush to go anywhere. Everything looked so new that I just stared. Even driving on the left side of the road is a complete shocker that took days to adjust to. I was staring out the window when I saw the reflection of a young kid peeking out, minding his own business. I just stared at him, without a sound, without flinching a muscle. He eventually came into a slow freeze himself and thats when I struck with this photo.

ENTRY #3"London Eye"London, England. Aug. 2011.photo by: Rey.

It was harsh sunlight, peering straight into the sky. I was walking about from the loading dock towards the House of Parliament and I happened to look up. It was quite a feat to see it slowly churning as it gave people a unique vantage point of the whole city. I wanted to tell it without the background of the rest of London. Little did I know that I was overexposing at such an intense rate. As with many photos, the time difference between taking the photo and developing to see the negative was probably 2 months. When I saw the frame, I said to myself that the “eye” pops. The grain just make it that much more intriguing.

ENTRY #2"Playground" London, England. Aug. 2011.photo by: Rey.
It always rings a chord when I see children playing. This in particular had a kid running around water geysers shooting out of the ground. It was in a common area in front of a government building if my memory serves me well. I was walking parallel to the Thames River, and honestly I was lost. Walking around lost is the best way to take photos of hidden gems. This little kid must have been 1-2 years old which made it a challenge because the infant just ran the opposite way. There are a few frames that arent as strong as this but hopefully you get how ecstatic the kid is in the photo.

BeatjournalismENTRY #1"Gilberto" SF CA. c. 2011.Back when I was working in Greyhound, this gentleman was a regular who came in once every 2-3 months to send packages back home to Texas, with a final destination of Mexico. He was a hard working gentleman and he was in his 70s. He had a fiery spirit and argued he has found the fountain of youth through hard work. I made an extra effort every time to help him out (lifting 75lb boxes) because I knew he spent enough of his life working hard. One day, he saw my camera, intrigued of how old it was, as I followed to take a photo of his hands.

This is what a lifetime of work looks like.

i just wanted to share this just to let you all know that its out of hand. instead of letting it get to my head, i’ll let you read the sequence of events. let me know what your response would be. i dont argue with ignorance.all I did was that, I saw a neighbor wearing a shirt that said stop gentrification. a good friend shared my image, and got the comments.i grew up on 6th street. i guess that makes me an indigenous crack head. stop the haterism.
