I took these photos in Jan ’08 at the amusement park in the second section of Chapultepec park, Mexico City. I’d been past the previous week on the top deck of the Turibus & saw possibilities for photos. I went back on a Monday planning to pay entry to the park & walk around taking photos but it turned out to be closed on Mondays, so I had to walk around the outside & shoot over the fence.

The shot above is the Raton Loco (Crazy Mouse) & below is montana Rusa (Russian mountain, the Mexican name for roller coasters). Both photos were taken with a Holga exposing Agfa RSX transparency film that was cross processed in C-41 chemistry to a negative.I had all my film processed at a good pro lab, LMI, Laboatorio Mexicano de Imagenes, in Hipodromo Condesa. I think they are the best lab in Mexico City.
