Magic number and beginning of the journey. I´m going to use my most sought after motive: 13th place in a theater.
Montreal Ópera, Montreal, Canada. Sometime around 13 minutes before the hour, friday 13th 2009. The only broken and dirty sit in the audience...

aaah, the last but one... quintessential it is. You should have removed the few blemishes on the white chairs though. Maybe those lousy portrait-filters-turning-skin-to-plastic would have done it.

Joke aside, well observed and great diversity of subjects and techniques. The first one (plaza de toros) is particularly well seen.

It's funny how much more you actually observe, when you start looking with something specific in mind. The diversity of these images is very good and thus making the theme more enjoyable as such.

Thanks, those are big compliments in my book.


   Diversity has very long span of time and space behind it. This is the first time I try to show them together. A few more still on the archives will come soon.

   Feel free to to add more 13s, or any meaningful number for that matter... :)

you are clearly not superstitious (at least, not in the traditional way). Even Dr Gregory House's favourite medical protégée was called "13".

Mongo finds your project truly fascinating as he does your very last image in the opera house.

What you explained is very similar to the benefit of "Low latent inhibition". Increased awareness of your surrounding environment and noticing things around you nobody else usually does... Photographer's boon.

Paco, this is a very creative and interesting series. Honestly, your keen observation and phenomenal photography skills are making this series more enjoyable. Looking forward to see more. Thanks for sharing!
