Photograph by Juan Diego Velasco
This is a pedestrian bridge located on a ‘Transmileno’ station named ‘Minuto de Dios’.
Juan was done with his classes by 5:00 pm, what is known as “golden hour” or the “magic hour” (the first and last hour of sunlight during the day). On his way from college to the station, Juan always had his camera and took random pictures, waiting for the light to make some sort of miracle. That day, when he got to the station he did not feel that secure having his camera out so he just hid it and started to “shoot from the hip.” Both, the time and the uncomfortable and accidental angle, contributed for this picture to come out as it did.
When he got home and downloaded the pictures to the computer he was surprised to see the the colors, the high contrast of the bridge against the sky, the angle, and how people moved along the photo.
For some reason, he always related this picture to a song called “Fast Forward” from the group Lali Puna.
So the tag line for this photo might be: “Going Fast Forward” or just “Puente”
