Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

The Bitch who hit the Beach

The great photographer Cartier Bresson once said that a photographer never should leave the house without a camera. He was absolutely right. I am not a professional photographer, but I take a lot of photos as reference for my work. I lost a lot of opportunities to photograph interesting things because I didn't have my camera with me. Once I saw a beautiful pheasant in Central Park, in New York City. Also, a man carrying a huge cross on his back a la Jesus Christ in Fort Lauderdale and counteless interesting scenes which could make great photos. Then I started to carry my camera all the times. When I arrived in Fort Lauderdale after Hurricane Wilma the first thing I saw was a Shell gas station which lost the S and become "hell". That was a true sommation of Fort Lauderdale after it was hit by the hurricane.
