Well, since I´ve been here in Valparaíso for more than a month now, maybe you´re wondering what I´ve been up to, aside from eating… that has been no small job. Walking up and down the hills here gives me a furious appetite, and even with mayo-drenched hot dogs and fried empanadas I feel like I´m losing calories.
But anyway, photography has been taking up a lot of my time, despite having a camera that is slightly less than fully functional. Since its unhappy meeting with concrete at the hands of a would-be thief, I´ve gotten it pretty well sorted out with duct tape and some luck. Since then, I´ve been focusing a lot of my energy on taking photos of the dogs here in the city. Valparaiso is teeming with dogs, stray, domestic, and those in between. Pure-breds and mutts mix freely, and on every street corner is a dog or group of dogs enacting some aspect of their life: sleeping, playing, chasing cars, fighting, begging. Here is a sample of what I´ve been getting so far.
