Match of the day

In photography there are many important things you need to do in order get a good photo, one of the most important is the focus.

Today i took many photos of many games but i decided to focus in this blog in one specific match, Mexico vs Brazil (women)

I am a big football fan and i was aware that almost at the same time of this game back in Spain there was the big game between Barcelona and Real Madrid and believe me or not after watching this game here in Mexico i  didn't care at all that i missed the super classico because this game that i just saw was just as good, you know what? call me crazy (i really don't mind) perhaps it was just little bit better...

The build up for this game was just perfect, the 2 finalists from last year tournament, the venue was packed with load home supporting crowd and the two teams were ready to meet again for one more epic match. 

For me the story of this match isn't the teams nor the winner, it was all about the atmosphere, the crowd, the energy just got me swamped and for a moment i forgot that i am actually looking at young homeless girls that have to deal with hard daily reality, girls that for many different reasons ended up living in the street without a roof above their heads, without a bed, without a job, food and so many other things that we just take for granted.

After the game finished (which by the way Brazil won 8:7) there were people queueing just to have their photos taken with the local Mexican players, looking from the side, if i didn't know any better i would think this girls are celebrities and that showed me all the importance of this project, of course this kind of experience is helping the players to change their way of thinking and changing their lives for the better, this is the beauty of this project and this is why it is so important. 

Share it and spread the word around, let people know that this homeless people still got hope and still got a lot to offer, I'm here only for 2 days and it already had such a huge impact on me, it sure change my way of thinking, what about you?

The crowed making the wave, the atmosphere was just perfect!

Goal to local team, look at that, now you believe me that this was just as good as Barcelona vs Real Madrid?

Fans go crazy after another goal to the local team

And another goal to Mexico from a different angle...

At the end Brazil won, but the victory is all for the Homeless World Cup!
