I know this is not a very typical landscape shot from me. Walking around La Boca in Buenos Aires, where all the colorful houses and shops, I found the little corner very cute and charming with a few pots of plants and flowers in front of the colorful floor and wall made of tin roof and the window display of hand bags.
La Boca is a very nice little place for photography and many lively restaurant and tango shows. Outside of this area are bad neighborhoods, Tourists are advised not to venture too far out of the area.

What an explosion of vivid colors, an everyday shot but many of us would miss it!
Congratulations for this new vision.

Hello dear friend !
Very unusual in your gallery.
It seems you're looking for colors and your frame confirms it. It's rare on TE to see a man take care as much with the frame of its posts, well done. I noticed that TE make us more and more sensitive to colored shots. We need shots like this one in the gallery.
I imagine it wasn't very simple to choice the framing and personaly, I think I would have moved the plant which is on the right to have it in the framing.
I hope we will have the luck to see anothers shots on this place because it seems to be a lovely place.
Have a good week.

Why should you make only landscape photos? One should try different things. I like this composition very much and it seems typical for Bueanos Aires with the very strong colours. Nice composition. So, you took the advice and didn't go outside this area or, on the contrary, went to see what is there?
Nice to see you here

it's good to change the POV sometimes...and "La Boca" is a full of great photo-opportunities!

Hi Way, well very different from your usual. I like it alot, it's so quirky and fun, a little like you :P The colours are beautiful, I like thee tight cropping and the photo is really original. Pots flowers and handbags... is there any more to life really? Oh, except FOOD! :) have a beautiful day and TFS, Lisa

You know I love colourful places so I wouldn't have been able to resist this either. I like the variety of colours and textures. Good composition of a difficult subject.
LOOOK13 (19046) 2010-09-01 11:45
Very original and super sympathetic. Colors will extras and envoutantes.
A well found idea.
zanzi (13642) 2010-09-01 11:52
Indeed, probably not your best composition but those colors are screaming on my screen.
A good one

Ciao dear Way,
you have really captured a nice little corner, emphasizing the vividness of the colors. Seeing this image seems impossible that this district in Buenos Aires is populated by bad people, but perhaps, as in all the things of the world, there is always someone good among the bad ones. Excellent shot, congratulations, my friend!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!

now I would never guess this is from Argentina, my guess would be Greece (exactly this kind of photo and colours are famous on Greek postcards)...very summery, very holidayish, very nice...
Have a nice weekend, Ivana

Hey Way !!!
Aww... isn't this lovely? so simple, yet so beautiful... and yes, the color palette is so typical of La Boca. This is very lively and charming indeed!
big hugs from Miami :)

I guess this composition very well presents the main character of this BA quarter. Very intense colors and the typical shape of the walls.
Very funny and eye catching capture,

THis is beautiful man. Love the simplicity of it. Best of it natural view. Well done. Sothy

Wahouuu crazy colors, nice picture.
Angshu (55665) 2010-09-11 5:59
Did I see this picture before...not sure, but definitely very attractive because of the colours...the pink to be precise. Sometimes it requires a good photographic eye to see a simple scene & convert it to a good photo...here's an example!
Good framing here & a peek through the glass window at the hanging handbags does definitely provide an extra dimension to this picture!
iainsp (2626) 2010-09-11 6:45
Thanks for this photograph which really made me smile - photographs get to us for all sorts of reasons, it is not always composition, or management of colours (although as always, your's is excellent here). On her only visit to Argentina, my mum bought a handbag from the shop whose window is in your photo and she still talks about it almost every time I phone her.
regards and thanks for the memories,

What a beautiful collection of colors and shapes is presented by you with this shot! I like how this wonderful scene is composed, captured, framed and commented. A very aesthetic job!
wawa (692) 2011-03-12 12:48
a very succesful graphic composition full of rich & vibrant colours.The vertical & horizontal lines of the tiles, wall & window frame are balanced by the slightly messy growth of mother nature
abmdsudi (43480) 2012-04-28 1:12
Shocking and great colours, my eyes are watering but this certainly brightened up the neighbourhood. You have captured this riot of colors beautifully, lines and shapes rendering excellent graphic effect as well. Admire their talent, it may be an urban myth, but it made for a grand shot. Great keen eyes, Congrats
sacimar (25975) 2012-07-30 7:47
the color of this image caught my attention, it's a usual scene in South America, I like the composition with the flowers,
maria-v1981 (10814) 2012-08-03 3:12
What a delightful and refreshing picture. With the colors to steal the impressions. It's a simple but so eye-cathing image with lovely details.
Have a great weekend,
