Fighting from a Canadian point of view

Yesterday it was a great day for this blog and its many fervent and loyal readers when we all enjoyed so much pictures of an evening of Lucha Libre in Mexico.
Folkloristic wrestlers beating each other up, but symbolically only.
To the great delight of the audience and especially the kids went wild.
They wanted signatures of every fighter performing.
And then the wrestler who had been the mean and bad one, turned out to be the nicest guy on earth awarding every child with a beautiful signature.

But that evening in La Paz, Mexico, there was also another photographer.
A sympathetic colleague from Canada by the name of Daniel Gautreau.
Of course he made pictures too with a sophisticated Leica camera.
And here are some of his images:
