David Smith-Soto, Madrid

David Smith-Soto gives us an interesting look back of his time in Spain in "Fifty years later, its déjà vu all over again in Madrid". Interesting indeed, how much has changed - yet stayed the same... Including his two Leica cameras.

...I carried two Leica cameras with me, my only possessions other than the shirt on my back, and I documented every step of our wanderings from Luxembourg where Icelandic Airlines dropped us off, across the Mediterranean to North Africa where penniless in Tangier we had to scrounge to get back to Madrid.
