This is an actual picture with an “Attic” filter. It is in Aguascalientes a state in Mexico know for its bullfighting predilections.

This photo I took was a polemic one.
There was some minor street fight and I started taking pictures. The friends I was with told me not to.
– Why? I replied.
-It is not safe.
-Maybe police won’t like being photograph while they arrest the guy, they may take the camera away or the memory card.
-But why? What about if I were to photograph firemen putting off a fire, would that be acceptable? They are doing their job.
-Then what is wrong with taking photos to the police doing their job??
Next, I was grabbed away by my friends. Too stuburn they said I am.
What would you have done?
We mexicans have strange customs, perhaps our pre hispanic roots.
We are also very romantic, perhaps our spaniards roots.
The mix turns into art: in the streets, everywhere.
This is a wall at the entrance of a tunnel, not a dangerous one. Just a popular expression of our culture.
