The City of Salta in Argentina is very nice especially at siesta time!!!
The shops & streets clear so quickly for a few hours every afternoon between 1.pm & 3.pm - people go home or take themselves off to study - I found that most of the people are not wasteful with their time & they work long hours for not so brilliant money... I met several young people that work two jobs & when they were not working they were studying / eating & sleeping just a few hours.
Here you have a view of some of the buildings near a plaza.

An excellent composition, pleasant colors, good presentation
Very well done, TFS.

Your photos are good addition for the Gus's reports from Argentina. Excellent presentation of a domestic architecture, just a typical western style, without local touch. Fine POV, nice colours and good sharpness.
Best wishes from Russia!

I'm a big fan of viewing these street photos of far off places all around the globe.
Having never been to South America, its interesting to see how some of the street intersections look.
Also interesting to read about the siesta time too.

The wideness of the plaz is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is allowing me to distinguish the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

It's hard times for everyone.
All countries that achieve extraordinary results in sports such as Argentina or my Serbian living in very difficult financial circumstances.
Your place in Australia is at a higher standard of them, live there for a few of my relatives and friends.
We are trying to preserve what we have and it's harder to make it work.
All of my komentarat is to celebrate this wonderful place you photographed.
Wonderful place, wonderful motive.
Beautiful building, with a few people and street children.
Nice colors and sharpness.
Excellent composition and presentation of the city.

Notable white houses with Spanish oriented style, the plazza reminded me placed I saw in Spain.
You were surprised when people went off business for their siesta - but mind you, this is rather very importent hours of any day, wish I could do this myself... but many places around the southrn European countries really sacred those intervals at work.
Lovely and clear photo,
