Two Lucha Libre Wrestlers

Two wrestlers in Downtown Orlando.

During the night of Halloween 2008, I photographed a friend’s Downtown Orlando event. It was held in a building’s upstairs. Of course, many people were dressed up.

As I photographed, I ran across two guys dressed as Mexican wrestlers. I’m talking the masks and flashy outfits. Actually, Mexican wrestling is called Lucha Libre.

I only photographed the guys once. Usually, I take two pictures. I do this in case the first pic screws up.

Years later, I recognized the guy on the left. His tattoo tipped me off.

I once photographed him at the now-closed Peacock Room.

I recently color selected the photo, stripping away color while the rest of the pic remains black and white.

This photo is in my book Selective Color. Available on Amazon.
