About La Boca
La Boca is a tourist neighborhood of Buenos Aires; some painters have there their ateliers for space reasons and a bohemian look, there are also some good restaurants, especially Italian ones and small art galleries
Abroad is known the football team called Boca, it has his field here, where Maradona used to play
(Personally I went there one time, to a concert performed by Elton John and James Blunt)
The colors of the team are yellow and blue and people living there are quite fanatic, as it’s shown here in a very cold day, with dogs protected with blankets with these colors
I assume the one using pink, must be “woman”
Place of the photo
At the back is the museum from which terrace I took the panoramic view, behind begins Caminito ,a pedestrian street with colored houses, still with people living there, years ago there was there on summers an open theater, now used to sell souvenirs and tango performances

Different cultures in the world, in dogs, just to protect, and preserve the environment in the home, do not, and few people do it, I go pheasant hunting at the time, with cubs are trained to use
all the best

Nice colourful morning shot, simply gorgeous dogs and the eye catching handler enjoying the sunlight and this image has been very well composed It has all the right components for me with space, juxtaposition and the lovely background enough details not to lose feel of the town centre. Colours are nicely saturated whilst remaining look natural, I love the clarity there which is nicely balanced between darkest & brightest. Those long shadows are wonderful too against the textured pavement. This is good daily life shot and a fine example of observational picture. Congrats.

The lady in red coat looks as she was shivering under the morning sun, Maria.
Placed her beautifully on pic., off-center, allow a nice space allocation on the modern edifice behind.
Those dogs behave nicely, not the always is the obvious. A pleast pic. to watch.

Like a fashion show for dogs, and I have to wonder what has grabbed the attention of them all as they all look in the same direction :) A very pleasing shot that made me smile, thank you!
All the best

Una imagen muy simpatica de la vida cotidiana en la ciudad, que se comprende mejor despues de leer tu interesante nota, asombrado de como la señora lleva a sus perros, no solo abrigados con ese tipo de jersey, con los colores del Boca, sino que ademas llevan Pantalones....! son cosas que no acabo de entender..., me gusta ver en la imagen en entorno de la zona.
Bien gestionada la iluminacion y una buena nitidez de la imagen.
El colorido es natural y apropiado.
Ten una buena tarde.
P/D: Sobre tu pregunta sobre la ventana, te dire que lo que cerca la ventana es piedra y tiene esos recortes, porque a los dueños les habra parecido mas bonito.

wow, a beautiful shot from everyday life, Maria. Like how you composed it. Nice use of light. Sharp details on the pavement and as well on the lady and her dogs in trousers. Excellent shot. Very well done. Tfs.

Une image qui sort des sentiers battus, faut-il en rire ou en pleurer !
Il n'en demeure pas moins qu'il fallait saisir ce moment particulier.

oh I do enjoy this clever shot,the blonde lady in red is so striking against a predominantly blue and yellow background setting, whilst the well wrapped dogs have an interest of their own.
Viva La Boca!
Kind regards Les.

The woman's red shirt contrasts well against the blue grey bg tones and the snappily dressed dogs are amusing. Good sharpness and nice textural details on the flagstone pavement. Excellent bg shadow detail. Tfs!

Hello dear friend Maria
Sign beautifully from everyday life. Very well done.

Le genre de photo que j'aime beaucoup et tu l'as merveilleusement bien captée. La composition est excellente et les chiens semblent prêts pour la parade. Jolies couleurs.
Toutes mes amitiés et merci de ta visite,

such a cute dogies. They are dressed up so funny way. Great capture and great executed image. Well done. Tfs.

Thanks for you kind words to my post. Much appreciated.
Good shot with a sense of humor. Very funny how people dress up their dogs. It seem in Argentina, dogs are very well taken care of. I saw so many people walking their dogs and if they can't they hire someone else to walk them. I saw once, a man with maybe 10 dogs at one time. Amazing they don't get tangle and/or fight each others.

Scène intéressante agrémentée par la lumière latérale
1/4 d'heure pour écrire cette critique ma réception est mauvaise

Espero que algún día a ver Buenos Aires; Parece maravilloso!
¿Es sólo un perro con la correa?
Con saludos cordiales,

An excellent street snapshot, I never saw somebody with so many dogs. I like your composition in nice tight crop. The light is also very good and the straight viewpoint excellent. Well done.

Salut Miss Maria,
It must be cold if the dogs are wearing blankets...or are they just spoiled? Is this dog walker taking her hair style from these four legged friends? jaja I can't help but laugh at the dog on the left, is he caught up in the leash, or relieving himself on the other?? :O
As much as I love dogs, I was actually hoping to see Maradona here...or was he busy still trying to explain his "Hand of God?" goal. ;)
A fun daily life picture, something that many of us can relate with...walking dogs, and being cold! A nice cast of characters you found here, and a smartly taken and well presented aspect of local life in the city. Despite the cold temperature, there's warm light and bright color. If someone whistles, will they all go running off as one and leave her far behind? :) Have a great day ahead. All the best.
Ciao for now,
P.S., your wish is my command...you ask for gamblers in Las Vegas, you got it with my recent picture.
