Just for the sakes of variety, here are a few shots I took about... two years ago?
Anyway, the two first "public transportation" ones are from a trip to San Franthisco (I feel better now).
The other one is L.A.

Marcos! I -like- those any chance did you take 'em for reference for Miss Trouble? That last shot especially - it reminds me of some of the early street shots where you were setting up the scene...

Una vez me dijeron que como fotógrafo yo era muy buen dibujante. Vamos que soy un negado con una cámara, asi que te envidio. Muy bonitas.

-Shuku, I see what you mean. These were not directly used as reference though. Still, maybe they were somewhere in the back of my head when I designed some of the location shots for my comic book, or simply, this is a kind of urban landscape I feel is more representative of L.A.

-Guillermo, muchas gracias por la visita y el comentario.

Yo te voy a mandar fotos de los desvencijados vagones de la Central Line aqui en Londres. Marcos

Hey Marcos!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I think the link to those Turin sketches should work now, I had to cheat blogger cause it wasn't working very well...:)

By the way I finally booked my flight, I will be in LA the 25th for about ten days! Let me know, my email is on the mainpage.

Stay well!

-Hi Edouard, thanks for your visit. Well, it sure is supposed to look like California!

-Thanks Ale, it looks like I'll see you guys soon if you come visit California!

-Maestro! envia esas fotos, a ver si me despiertan el recuerdo de hace ya unos... quince años!
Un abrazo transoceanico.

Sempre m'he preguntat pq són grocs els taxis a USA (i no vermells per ex)... En tot cas, boniques i evocadores imatges!

Great photos. I think taking pictures adds to an artists' photo memory and visual libary.
