Really cool music video!
So excited! The World Cup in Brazil is about to start. Besides of being a soccer fan, I am a Brazilian music lover. Here is a selection and a mix I made of underground sounds Brazilian samba. Obrigado!

Hotel Europe by David Delgado
The road, the weather, the architecture, and even the motorcycle in this intersection in Vancouver, Canada has an European touch besides the name of building ‘Hotel Europe’. The building is a former hotel built in 1908, it reminds of the Sentinel Building in San Francisco. It’s a nice spot to hang out, eat, drink, and photograph. I used my wide angle lens to bring a cool perspective to the building and ground.
Morning Mist by David Delgado
Hermosa Beach Pier – Hermosa Beach, Los Angeles, California. I went for a walk this morning at the beach and of course I had to take my camera. It was overcast, chilly with good waves and a family of dolphis swimming back and forward. I used my Canon s100 for this shot and the black & white process in Analog Efex Pro.
White Sunset by David Delgado
Alki Beach, Seattle, Washington. Two minute exposure shot taken during sunset.
Lions Gate Bridge by David Delgado
Clear day in Vancouver. View of the Lions Gate Bridge and the Mountain Fromme from the Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Grey Lines by David Delgado
I’ve been having fun lately using the Lensbaby filters lately. It was tricky the first couple of times I used them. I’ve learned it’s not about perfection, which makes me like the Lensbaby filters even more. I’m happy as long the photograph looks cool. I took this shot while I was having a cup of tea in Seattle at the Cherry House Coffee House (about two blocks from the Space Needle).
One O’clock by David Delgado
I was excited looking at so many different colors of fruits and vegetables at the famous Pike Market Place in Seattle. I always enjoy shopping at any farmer’s market, but this one has something special that I can’t really tell what it is. It has been one of my favorite spots to be in the city. Location: See Map
Motel California by David Delgado
Sea Sprite Motel in Hermosa Beach, Los Angeles, California. When is overcast is my perfect time to go out and shoot since the soft light helps me bring a special look to my photographs. I came to the Hermosa Beach Pier to see the sunset and also to play with the Lensbaby which makes these kind of cool effects. Location: See Map
Sunset Surf by David Delgado
Since started learning more about photography I’ve been exploring places I didn’t pay much attention before. Huntington Beach was one of them and it was terrific. It was sunset during May and the waves were still really nice; nothing like where I live. I used my Canon 7D, the Lensbaby Composer Pro with Double Glass Optic to create the blur & distortion effect of the photograph, and I converted it into black and white using Silver Efex Pro 2.

Walking by… by David Delgado
Valladolid – I visited this little town in Yucatan, Mexico for about 25 minutes. It was a stopping break after I visited the Chichén Itzá ruins and I was heading back where I was staying in Playa del Carmen. I took advantage of this little break, I went around the main park to capture some photographs. I was attracted by the door and the wall’s texture. I saw the two local women with the long skirts approaching, and I thought it was a good idea to include them in the shot. Location: 20°41’26″N, 88°12’9″W See Map
Malibu Sunset by David Delgado
I’ve been living in Los Angeles for many years, this was my first time at the Malibu canyons. I reached to the top of mountain and it was great! I thanked Bobby Gibbons for sharing this location in one of his photos; that’s how I got there. View of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Barbara Island all the way across. Location: 34°4’7″ N 118°41’24” W See Map
Big Sur by David Delgado
I stayed in San Francisco for a few days I wanted to drive to Los Angeles taking the Pacific Coast Highway. It was a beautiful drive! I’ve been wanting to go back to Big Sur that I might plan to stay there soon. The photograph was shot almost during sunset at the Pfeiffer Big State Beach, is a must-see place if you are visiting Big Sur. Location: 36°14’18″N, 121°49’0″W See Map
Guatemala by David Delgado
Happy new year! I really excited about 2014. I have so much plans I want to accomplish just as I did in 2013. I’m planning to travel to places I have been and places I have not been. Anyway, when I took this photograph I was amazed seeing so many high altitude crops in Guatemala, it reminded me when I was little living in Colombia (which I’m planning of going later this year). This shot took place in Chimaltenango when I was heading to Lake Atitlán. Location: 14°49’60″N, 91°6’52″W See Map
Queen Mary by David Delgado
The Queen Mary – Long Beach, Los Angeles, California. I took this photo one year ago, when I came home, I went thru the photos I took of the Queen Mary I was not really happy with results, so I left those photos behind and moved on. It was until now I went thru those photos again and I noticed I did a good job shooting the big ship. I enhanced the photo using my favorite new tool Nik Collection Analog Efex Pro. I’m happy with the final result. Location: 33°45’11″N, 118°11’29″W See Map
Viejo San Juan by David Delgado
Visiting Puerto Rico has been one of my best trips so far. It was so easy to get around the island and find great spots for more than just photography. After an early dinner in Old San Juan I went for a walk in El Paseo de la Princesa and I saw this wonderful colonial building during sunset. Location: 18°27’49″N, 66°6’56″W See Map
Tobia, Cundinamarca by David Delgado
Tobia is a little town located in Cundinamarca, Colombia. I never heard of this town until I got there. Is about two hours away from Bogota. I went to Tobia with my uncle and a big group of people to do some rafting. Here is a shot I took of local kids playing fútbol. Location: 5°7’23″N, 74°26’58″W See Map
The Other Side by David Delgado
Mexico—United States border wall. View of the Tijuana Lighthouse and the Monumental Plaza de Toros. I was planning to shot this place months ago. The first time I went, the park was closed so I didn’t have any luck to sneak around since the border patrol is very strict in the area for obvious reasons. I got luck this time, the park was open and it was a beautiful sunny day. Location: 32°32’4″N, 117°7’22″W See Map
