It seems incredible how within a modern and cosmopolitan city, like Buenos Aires, there is a neighborhood with this flavor so ingrained, so special ... well, your note and tells us how special their neighbors, in a good way !!
Your picture reflects another lifestyle, leisurely enjoying the colors, the music, life !!
I liked very much !!

Beautiful shot, the golden sky compliments the many deep layers of silhouette so well. I love shots taken straight into the sun, and here we 5 suns to enjoy thanks to these fine reflections. A beautiful moment to capture, really nicely done.

It is difficult to reconcile centuries old traditions with modern concerns for health and welfare. It is easy to understand why each participant wants their viewpoint to be followed.
This is very much a journalistic photograph, to be retained, as things are sure to change.
It is very well composed and has amazing clarity, especially for. Night shot.
My war regards,

A moody shot, and as I read your thorough and excellent note, i can picture the many varied people who would have sat in this place, it seems fitting and a little sad that it is devoid of people in your photo, but that adds a lot to the scene. I can squint my eyes and picture 500 years of ghosts walking through these arches and sitting at that bench.
Great choice in black and white.

I often see people here on TE give the useful advise, never forget to look up. Your gallery teaches us that it can be equally important to look down, as the ground beneath our feet can also offer such inspiration. This looks like a surreal painting, as the dappled texture of the path reflects the beautiful detail and character of this old house, which itself seems to be looking longingly at the sun.
Really nicely seen.

The houses here look perilously close to the water as it is, in a time of a storm the likes of what this looks like, I would be hoping they can float. That sky is amazing. I love the soft ripples on the water too, they belie the intense pounding of water that seems to be mere seconds away.
All the colors of the houses add so much to the grey and threatening sky. Cool photo, I can feel the electricity in the air from this.

This is a beautiful shot, it is delicate and well considered, under beautiful light, there could be no better way to present this fine flower and time of year than you have done here. Your trademark perfection in depth of field is very obvious too and adds a lot to the result.

Looks at that sky, such incredible vivid blue, something i have not seen in a long long time. The perfect canvass on which to present this very impressive classically styled building. Its a beautiful design, but rather strange that the clock tower is so small in comparison to the portico. It seems very apt that the Navigator commands this high up position in the frame too, nicely done.

Thanks for a fascinating post, I have never ever seen pigs like these before, they are so fuzzy and cuddly looking! I actually thought they were dogs, the one closest to the camera looks like a terrier! Great photo to illustrate a very learned note. Best wishes
