Valparaiso with Leica M10

Valparaiso is a small and calm, but a unique port city.

Once A very important port for South America continent, it’s met with decline once Panama Canal opened up. But the city breathed art for a long time, and the city of 44 hills have become the culture capital of Chile.

It was my 2nd destination in the journey to South America. To be honest I didn’t expect too much. To my surprises, Valparaiso turned out to be a street photographer’s paradise. I could walk everywhere. And everywhere I walked, I found a moment. The people, the colorful houses, artful paintings.. it was all recipes for a great pictures. Thus I walked everyday from morning to sunset, more than 20km per day, with Leica M10 in my hands. And here are some of my favorites.

I stayed in the city for five days, and it was nearing winter, so things were a bit quieter. I wonder how things are during summer time. But being in an off-season also helped me in a way. All in all, I’ve grown to like this city a lot. I’d love to return one day. M10 seemed to like the city too! What do you think?
