Elecciones – 2010 – Elections (PART-e 2)

Ayer me fui a fotografiar a Ottón Solís en su visita al Mercado Central.

Eramos muchísimos fotógraf@s y camarógrafos y tuvimos que “codear” mucho, porque los pasillos y zonas del mercado son bien estrechas, pero se logró el trabajo y se gozó mucho. He aquí el resultado.

Ottón Solís es el candidato del Partido Acción Ciudadana, un partido que ha crecido desde su nacimiento en el 2002 y se ha convertido en el segundo partido más importante. / Ottón Solís is the candidate of Citizen Action Party, a party that has grown since its birth in 2002 till become the second force.

Yesterday I went to photograph Ottón Solís while his visited the Central Market of San José.

We were many photographers and videographers and we had to push a little bit, because the aisles and areas at the market are very narrow, but I got the photos and it was fun. Next you will see the results.

Desde la entrada del mercado la gente se emocionó con la visita de Ottón. / As soon as people saw him at the entrance of the market they were very excited.

    Very informative shots. Tells of his effort to connect to the people, and the peoples response. I love the pictures of others taking the pictures–that tells me people were excited by his visit.
