Photographer's Note

My last two shots showed the bustling, touristy, showy side of San Telmo. This shot was taken one block over from the large market I posted a shot of on Thursday; you can see the stark difference. This street, just 200 feet or so from a giant sprawling mass of humanity and life, was desolate and deserted on a Sunday morning. While some of the gentrification visible close to he square had spread here - several buildings, including the one just to the right of this one, had recently been renovated - much of the street remained in an older, crumbling condition. This house in particular struck me, both for the varied and at moments impressive graffiti outside, and also for the woman sitting on the stoop, alone, waiting for something that seemed like it wasn't coming.

This is my last shot from Buenos Aires; tomorrow's will be my last from South America. We had a fantastic trip, and I'm glad I could share some of it here!
