Was a well known french photographer, on February 8 at about 8.15 AM he was taking photos in this square when a thief approached and tried to steal his camera
He resisted the robbery and struggled, unable to get it, the offender pulled out a knife, stabbed Laurent in the chest and fled, was cached by the police minutes later
Laurent was dead
He behaves in a very brave way
I took this photo 3 days before these facts at the same square which seems so quiet being so dangerous even at day
San Martin Square
is one of the oldest squares in the city and also one of the most beautiful, for its lush vegetation, large and beautiful trees and a variety of plant due at the work of Carlos Thays a French landscape architect
The pink flowers at the BG are from "Palos Borrachos" (Drunken Trees), a South American Tree
Opened on January 3,1936, was the first skyscraper in Buenos Aires made of reinforced concrete, has a height of 120 meters and rationalistic style
Since 1999 National Historic Landmark

I have just read your note and have learned what has taken place here in this park. It is very difficult for me to imagine the event, this park seems so peaceful. We are often out there with very expensive equipment; it could have happened to one of us. I found the situation so chilling and very unfortunate. Having said this, the park is so beautiful now with all the trees and the green lawn. And the building on the left side of the photo is a stunningly attractive example of architecture, which is facing this beautiful park. The rose colour flowers and distant trees are a very soothing example of the arrival of the springtime. The sunlight, and the peaceful atmosphere, the presented image is captivating in many ways. I appreciate your visit today. I hope that we will meet again in near future.
With my very best and kind regards,
have a very pleasant day,
Thank you, Maria

A fine image and more interestingly how you relate this to the tragic event, moment of life story, and this image says it all and your description of it is inspired and beautiful thoughtful words to go with a very moving and I love it as this image does say a lot. A tribute to the evid photograher and not to be forgotten while many others remain traumatised by the experience. Photowise this image is beatifully taken and symbolic but I love your words even more. Its great tribute. Well done, Maria

The place looks very quiet and not dangerous... a suitable tribute to this unfortunate photographer... probably safer to let the camera go!

Sólo podemos lamentar esta terrible tragedia. Cualquier cosa puede pasar en la vida, todo puede cambiar de un segundo a otro, incluso sin tomar riesgos. Una foto hermosa en que se conmemora la tragedia. Excelente calidad. Bravo.

Hola Maria !!! te quiero felicitar por pensar y poner una foto en su homenage.Cuando yo lei la noticia en el diario..... me quede como petrificado y por varios dias no me lo pude olvidar....... como Joel dice ..... la vida puede cambiar de un segundo para el otro.
Un saludo muy afectuoso.

Muy interesante nota, que nos introduce para admirar esta bellisima composicion, el lugar se ve ideal para pasear y captar fotos, lastima que ya no podamos ir seguros por nuestras ciudades.
Me gusta mucho el estilo de este edificio, que crea un bonito complemento a estos grandes y hermosos arboles.
Un buen trabajo, perfecto en colorido y optima nitidez.
Pasa un feliz fin de semana.

'' In memory of Laurent '' yes we heard about the tragedy - all for greed - a senseless crime...
I was not sure which park the crime was committed - such a lovely photo of the park now a shadow has been cast.

bellissima vista di Buenos Aires, molto intensi i colori sotto una splendida luce, perfette le geometri e la nitidezza dell'immagine.

great your contribution to the undeserved death of the famous French photographer in this place from the thief.
In other respects the place looks very attractive with the stairs to adds perspective and depth in the image.
Have a good week,Danos

Really very sad event. Big cities always have crime risks. It could have happened to one of us . Probably safe way to let the camera go. Saying could be easy but If I were Laurent I did same :S
The park looks like very nice and quite. Your pov is very good. tfs

A sad story you mention in your note! The park appears so peaceful! The diagonal of the stairs create a nice impression & the building stands out well against the cyan sky
jmdias (54091) 2012-03-17 16:19
yo también tengo obtenido algunas fotos de los palos borrachos de mi tierra en estos días (acá los llamamos de paineiras). hermosa vista con las lineas curiosas del edificio y las zonas verdes alrededor. una lástima la muerte del fotógrafo, algunas veces pienso como me costaría perder mi camera y las fotos de los lugares que he visitado.

Velika tragedija ...
Dobar tekst sa datim podacima ...
Lep pogled na mesto i oblakoder, dobra kompozicija.
Dobra ostrina snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Tezak je zivot u velikim zgrada, kao u kavezu.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja pocinje.
The great tragedy ...
Good text with the given data ...
Nice view of the place and the skyscraper, a good composition.
Good image sharpness and contrast, beautiful colors.
Life is difficult in large buildings, like in a cage.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best in the new week begins.

Such a sad story and a lesson to all of us to always be aware of our surroundings, especially in big cities. You would think he would have been safe at 8:15 am with plenty of people about. Anyway, a good catch of the skyscraper and the fg park. Tfs! Nice tribute.

Une information qui est passée presque inaperçue chez nous; c'est désolant
Je note ici un cadrage parfait avec l'édifice où l'on apprécie le volume, ainsi qu'une belle luminosité sans dominantes :)
ikeharel (55282) 2014-07-18 6:46
The note describs a terrible and most appalling moment that can happened to any tourist or a person just passing by, Maria.
The homage is well in place, and wonderfully shown two subjects: the tall building and in contrast the beautiful garden.
Well taken and done this gesture.
Buen tardes, y buen fin de semana,
