A Kyoto-based code monkey and photography addict

I shoot just about anything that crosses my lens

Anytime (...except if it implies waking up very early in the morning)

Monkey see, monkey shoot

Because the little voices tell me to do it

    "I've been thoroughly entertained by Paco's shots on Flickr. I'm constantly chuckling at his observations as a Mexican living in Japan. I've also recently learnt that stinginess saved his life because he chose not to purchase the beachside bungalow in Thailand on 26/12/2004. Keep 'em coming mate!"

    "paquis, una total genialidad. sus fotos no solo son excelentes, sino que en general van acompañadas por creativas narraciones que despiertan los sentidos y sueltan alguna risita. Pero por encima de todo esto, el tipo se las ingenia para mostrarle al mundo 'su Japón'! enhorabuena paquis."
