A continuation from my previous post. A typical scene from La boca, where you could see street artists having their own gimmicks on entertaining lots of tourist and the attractive colorful houses. Pardon the hand and camera on the left side, tourists simply don't mind others spaces. haha
Stitching of 4 photos.
La Boca is located in the city's south-east near its old port. From our place, the bus took about 40 minutes going there. It retains a strong European flavour, with many of its early settlers being from the Italian city of Genoa. In fact the name has a strong assonance with the Genoese neighborhood of Boccadasse.
It is known among sports fans for La Bombonera the home of Boca Juniors, one of the world's best known football clubs. La Boca is a popular destination for tourists visiting Argentina, with its colourful houses and pedestrian street, the Caminito, where tango artists perform and tango-related memorabilia is sold. They also said that it is best to buy souvenir items here cause prices are cheaper.

Hi Matt - Another colourful shot taken at this photogenic location and .... I actually like the hand with camera as I follow the sight-line and look at the activity going on. A dynamic and fascinating image packed with detail. Nice work. Warm regards Rosemary

The deep colors accentuate the village architecture, and remind me of my teenage bedroom, painted navy blue.
Good slice of life La Boca style.

Ce quartier, riche en détails et en couleurs, est un petit paradis pour les photographes. Cette maison en premier plan est un bel exemple de ce qu'on peut y admirer.

A fantastic warm cold color contrast between the yellow & blue. Good sharpness & framing. Excellent linear perspective & the diagonal line of the building at left adds dynamism. Tfs!

Hello Matt, Looking at the thumbnail it was the bright colours that grabbed my attention, but now I see it is much more than brightly coloured buildings, it is also a street full of life & activity, I agree with Rosemary, the guy with the camera points you in the right direction. Nice one.

It was raining like crazy when I was here on the first day. But I got a few pretty cool shot with the people with umbrella in the rain. and not many people on the street. What I do love here is the light you got that illuminated the colorful wall. One of my favorite spot in BA. Lot of stuff to look at and photograph. The atmosphere you have here is lively and with so much going on. Including the point and shooter on the left :) I know you really can't do much there.
