I have the pleasure to meet my college classmates once a year.
Was lucky to convince them to make the reunion in a city central to Mexican history, Queretaro, cradle of the Independence from the Spanish rule and burial grounds of the French Monarchy attempt.

My high school days were spent at the local University.
The city was the site of my very first torrid love, the encounter with important events in our family's warriors past and surely where my intense passion for photography strengthened, practicing with the remarkable monuments of its golden era of the XVI, XVII and XVIII centuries.

Laughter abounded, although the conversation turned more serious than in previous years with themes such as the need to find an alternative to the economic growth model.

Eating very well and drinking even better, we took the time to walk the main plazas, churches, convents and government monuments.
On the last night, standing in the corner of our colonial hotel I remembered not having photographed the Fountain of Neptune.

It was already dark and late; my tripod was stowed away (not allowed inside of buildings) but decided to make good use of the D700 high ISO possibilities.

Nikon D700 handheld, 14-24mm f/2.8G ED IF AF-S Nikkor @ 14mm; f/2.8, 1/30s; ISO 3200, processed in Photo Ninja (still learning it).

Time to change the priority of the lenses in my wish list, placing the 24mm f/3.5D ED PC-E MF Nikkor at the top again.

Have a great time :-)
