    Oaxaca Mexico with a Rolleiflex

    I went to Oaxaca in Feburary and spent about 4 days doing photography with my Rollei 2.8F mostly hand held. I printed up some of it on Oriental WT and scanned them and made this gallery. The extra warm images were tones in black tea.

    Very nice Dennis!
    I am surprised not to see any people, as looking at a ghost town.
    My favorite is the girl with the graffiti. The composition is complex and captivating.

    Great work Dennis.

    I spent the month of June in 2005 there in Oaxaca. I went with my Hasselblad and about 225 rolls of film, mostly APX 25.

    I have a bunch printed but nothing scanned.

    You did a really great job.

    Ha, Ari the place is crammed and crowded with people from dawn till midnight. But I am not interested in photographing people so I had to get up really early and sometimes wait awhile. Oaxacans are like people at a permanent festival. Everyday is another day of going to the Central square and listening to live music and kissing your sweatheart.

    I signed in to APUG to post the attached image of the Oaxaca's Cemetery I made 15 years ago when I saw your post. Great work!!. I stayed in Oaxaca last February, from 1 to 6, maybe we cross each other there.

    Hey Jose I have that exact picture though mine has converging lines. You must have used a view camera. I arrived in Oaxaca on the 8th. We just missed.

    Yea, I used a Sinar. I'll be in Oaxaca next July, round the 12th, any chance that you'll go too?

    What's the best way to get there, where is the best place to stay and does a person need an escort or guide?
