*To Mariusz & Way
Both “inspired” me to go to this place because while in Argentina, they took and post photos of this sporting meeting point
La Boca, part of an old port of Buenos Aires, where long ago immigrants arrived and worked, now a touristic area, known for the Boca Stadium of football, Caminito ( old colored iron houses) and museums
Is called "One against one" (Uno contra Uno)or "Arc without hands"
Name of the game played between two guys in a football field or better, an empty place with arcs, as the players told me
Tourist and Photos
While I was watching the game, saw lots of tourists arriving, taking a photo and going with no interest to stay some minutes, ask about the game, the graffiti, the play...

This is a fine photo with lots of nice ingredients. The young man kicking the ball is very important for the composition and atmosphere. He is well placed and the shot is well timed. The colours and light are suprb and I also enjoy the shadow of a tree, which tells us that this is not an entirely sterile area.

Excellent action photo of the two men. Very nice to see the shadow of the man in front as well as the tree. The wall painting looks very attrative, especially in this sunlight. Thanks for sharing!

Hola Maria querida,
the three words of the title tell a long story, the words on the graffiti too. Your picture was taken with great timing, there's the kind of action and suspense that feed the young people of this area every day. You chose a fine perspective and I like very much the intensity of the colours and the shadows as well. Your look at this place and scene is not superficial. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

excellente esta foto, capturada en el mejor momento con gran sensación de movimiento. me gusta los detalles de las pinturas, curiosos como ellos viven en una república pero son principes. haha.

Nicely combined the two subjects, Maria: the youngsters play "Uno contra Uno" and the lavish graffiti.
Painted walls regarded by some as art, and other's may think its a "rebelion" against "anything". It is well painted is some orederly manner, yellow tone enhanced by beautiful daylight.

So captivating and cheery neighbourhood, thanks to your infor notes, I can only imagine how creative they are by adding life to the wall full of vivid colors boosting the cheery mood of the place. That chico is so finely captured with good placement in the frame and the intense blue combination makes for a grand shot, standout and can be hard on the eyes. I simply cant resist the pulling power here. Great capture, TFS

Intéressante composition exploitant bien cette fresque de La Boca bien "animée" par les joueurs de foot.

You described very interesting story about the play, the guy attempted to kick the ball and other hand one stayed to keep it. A nice daily life picture, Good idea and special subject.
warm regards and thanks,

Une image pleine d'action autant sur le mur avec les graffitis de " La Boca " et les deux joueurs de foot, bien capturer, superbe couleurs et lumière
J'espère te parler un peu sur FB avant mon départ samedi pour la Toscane (15j)...

Excellent action photo - it would be perfect id a little bit more at the bottom could be included, but even now it is fantastic! I love the soccer player and his shadow together.
macjake (71059) 2014-09-03 11:26
so how is this game played?
its the perfect photo for TE, a bit of culture, a bit of action, and with lots of visual and educational interest :)
it took me awhile to see the boy in the bg! I just noticed him now.
fun shot, love the wall.

Lovely photograph with perfect timing. Great dynamism which is the result of pressing the shutter at the perfect moment! The colours and sharpness are excellent including the background with its attractive graffiti. Beautiful moment captured and thanks for sharing it with us.
asajernigan (21427) 2014-09-04 7:26
This is a nice daily life shot. The football player in action gives the photo a dynamic that adds life and focus. Your POV is great letting us see what the player was seeing. The lighting and colors are fine and the photo has good sharpness and detail.

Nice scene with murals in background.
Natural colours, perfect exposure, fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness. Nice shot.
photoray (13981) 2014-09-04 19:03
Interesting Republica de La Boca scene, the one man soccer players, with the wall art mural, intriguing is the metal bridge with large foundations. Looks like a good place to practice soccer.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Maria, Detail note about what was happening at the moment of taking this image. I like so much the wall painting on the BG and the yellow color on it is eye catching. The shadows of the tree and the man kicking the ball on the ground gives another picture in the picture. Well done with light and tones and also angles. Thank for sharing
adores (46305) 2014-09-05 15:54
It's a very good daily scene, you captured them really in action, I like their poses and shadows on the ground and the graffiti is a great background. Beautiful colours!
Silvio1953 (150323) 2014-09-11 8:56
Ciao Maria, lovely action shoot with beautiful graffiti in BG, great timing, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
mkamionka (39533) 2014-09-11 13:44
sorry for the delay!
I would not miss it indeed!
I like your photo so much more. You had a great light and probably fewer people there. Wider view allows to imagine the place better. The blue sky goes so well with the yellow graffiti. You have captured the football player in a very nice pose, almost as in some professional sport magazines!
The shades add also a nice touch to the foreground: shade of the tree but also the player and his ball.
Great work, thanks for mentioning me too!

Una gran instantanea, sobre todo para los aficionados al futbol, el graffiti, es muy alegre y bien ejecutado, ademas al incluir a este chico, con esos toque al balon, das mucha fuerza y vitalidad a esta imagen.
También tanto la nitidez, como la iluminación están genial.
Disfruta de un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-10-12 7:21
At least those graffiti are beautiful and very colorful instead of the ugly ones and good background for the ongoing game. Good documentation of the daily life, a game this time, with good details. Very well done, tfs.
What is OVNI?
