PS great work
Love this series!!! Love the colors!!
beautiful series, love the colours, the crops.
Beautiful photo, love the colors and framing!
Jose, someone above summed these images up beautifully…well in fact many of them did…it’s funny to hear the term ‘to be left breathless’…how can this be. Like love, it’s hard to explain until it happens to you…they really are breath taking images Jose. I have an xpanII but the results are less breathtaking to say the least. I’d love to know what film you used for the colour shots, really lovely earthy, natural tones that are so pleasing to the eye. How does one find the balance between work to pay the bills and work to please the soul…I’m not very good at it but by god you seem to know how…come to australia please. Let me buy you a beer ! Thanks for sharing.
It’s been said but I can’t resist saying it again….BEAUTIFUL!
LOVELY! Completely lovely. Your work brings a smile to my life :) A needed smile today and with the news of the book!!! :)
Stunning photos – it’s as if time stood still in Cuba!
I just recently returned from a trip to the “Mexico Riviera” and now know exactly what you’ve been talking about since I started following your blog. The light there is incredible! Even with my point & shoot, I was able to capture some of the softness and glow in my images that you have made so famous. It made me wilt with joy when I could finally open them up – no post production needed! I adore your “boat” images and wish you would sell them as prints but will purchase your book as a wonderful substitute.

These are all stunning!
Jose, this is freaking awesome, i love the format and crops as well. Super sweet. Your work continues to refine and this is an epic collection!
What a sweet camera. I can always count on you to bust out the cool toys.
So in love with these Jose! You are a constant inspiration!
Look at these old Russian cars! Amazing! Got a mood of my childhood:)
Fabulous!! Love them all and I too hope you publish a book with all your wonderful images from Mexico and Cuba, etc. Thanks for sharing your amazing work with us!
