A continuation post from my Argentine series.
This particular view is "Caminito," a street museum where locals sell their own paintings and other artsy stuff and a traditional alley, located in La Boca, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The place acquired cultural significance because it inspired the music for the famous tango "Caminito" (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto.
my note from my other post:
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.

De quoi régaler les yeux d'un photographe!Bon cadrage et profusion de couleurs (peut-être un tout petit peu trop saturées?)

Even better than your previous shot, though both really complement each other. I like how you only notice the people while looking at the scene.

Atrractive architectures that painted in vivid color, good discover and good frame to show the upper part of these local houses, sunlight and shading add extra effect to the scene, distinct image, well done.

Wonderful shot, one of my favorite area in Buenos Aires. Though I have not spent alot of time there and half of it was raining, pouring down.
You were here at the right itme with the warm light that illuminated the color very nicely and some soft shadow ti give it depth and contrast. Technically great quality, compositionally I probably would try to avoid the light pole, and wait till there is not too many poeple, but I know sometimes it may not be feasible. Regardless, a good shot. I would come back here again if possible.

What a vivid colour composition!
You write that this is a street museum. Are there also houses (in which people live) that are painted so colourful?
It certainly makes life more enjoyable.
