We Used To Walk

I sometimes get random bursts of creative energy, and one hit a few weeks ago with this video being the result. On September 29, 2010, I took 1391 continuous pictures of a walk in central Madrid during the national strike. My girlfriend and I started near the Callao metro stop, and walked along Calle de Preciados to the Puerta del Sol, the heart of Madrid and also the center of the strike. After Sol, we walked to Plaza Mayor, my favorite place in Madrid, and a Plaza that is never the same twice. Its latest reincarnation was as the host to an exhibition about Argentina. I added the Arcade Fire's "We Used To Wait" because of its relentless pace, which I though was perfect for the flashing images. Hope yall like it,
