The above image (Locomotive), part of the series Peñarol, a place where past and present coexist in a singular and contradictory way, was selected to be shown in the online exhibit and printed catalogue of the show Photo Review International Photography Competition 2012.  More than 2,400 photographs by 572 photographers were entered in the contest this year and mine was among less than 4% of chosen images.  Another step in this long process of growing photographically.
