Tampico

Tampico – it`s the strangest city I’ve ever visited. I was there on a 4 day business trip, so I didn’t really have time to lomograph the city… It was an amazing mixture of decay and modernity: abandoned buildings everywhere, side by side with shiny furbished buildings. I made a mental map of the city, while walking around it. On the last day, I escaped from work at the dinnertime and racing against the time I shot 2 rolls of the city. The map is still in my mind, waiting for the moment until I`m back in Tampico.

    I'm from Tampico, and yes, it is a strange city. But downtown is really beautiful, indeed it is full of abandoned buildings, but those forgotten pieces of architecture are true eye candy. I'm in love with downtown; for me it beats the beach or any other spot, hands down.
