the port district of La Boca, home to a great deal of colourful street art.
I have mixed feelings about graffiti but consider it of interest where an issue or idea is expressed or genuine artistic ability is displayed. In this case the green scarf is a powerful symbol of an important social/political movement.
Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral interior images lend themselves well to black and white.
One of the challenges in photographing the building interiors was the relatively low light levels and the need to shoot handheld.
there is plenty to ponder and explore with textures, the play of light and shadow, reflections and, of course, the religious symbolism.
Was it a bullet or perhaps a stone from a slingshot that caused the effect? I’ll never know.
The building, with it’s roof long gone, had obviously become the playground of graffitists with their tags and discarded spray cans everywhere.
It hardly gets more banal than shipping containers on a waterfront, but in this case someone saw fit to paint a smilie face on the end of a container.
Even a fairly banal, industrial, scene can be of photographic interest, especially if you look for the quirky.
Some people consider cracked mirrors to be bad luck, not me. Today’s photo is from Ushuaia in Southern Argentina, one of the most southerly ports before hitting Antarctica. The convex traffic mirror provides a distorted view of things when in good order, but when broken the disconnect with reality is exaggerated further! Cracked mirrors can be good luck! Ushuaia, Argentina.
