Photos from Argentina, 2008

 

 

 


the best shot I took there; looking down onto the birds in the Garganta Del Diablo (Iguazu Falls)

 

 

 


Tangueros busking in La Boca

 

 

 


beautiful doors & balconies are a dime a dozen in Buenos Aires

 

 

 


Yes, this tree was intentionally cultivated to grow through the bars and out the window.

 

 

 


Carlos Gardel is more popular than Jesus in Buenos Aires; his picture is everywhere
(also shows Fileteado style of graphic design popular throughout town.)

 

 

 


shore of the Rio De La Plata, wide enough here to be visible from space

 

 

 


clear river flowing into the Rio de la Plata

 

 

 


anywhere else these would be monuments, but in Iguazu they're barely appetizers

 

 

 


only 2/3 of Iguazu Falls; the plume of mist in the distance
(visible even from the plane) is from the Garganta del Diablo

 

 

 


Juat a fraction of the Garganta del Diablo

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


inside the Casa de Botellas, made entirely of reclaimed plastic bottles
(even the plant & the beaded curtain)

 

 

 


sundogs

 

 

 


sunbeams in the thickly humid air

 

 

 


flooded forest among the fields

 

 

 


Back in Buenos Aires, the megacity (360° pano)

 

 

 


radio towers live on rooftops, guywires web across multiple blocks

 

 

 


not mailboxes--electrical panels

 

 

 


stairwell elevator shadows

 

 

 


La Boca, birthplace of tango, is nothing if not colorful

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


remembering the disappeared

 

 

 


the booming riverfront is raising skyscrapers like weeds

 

 

 


dancer in Candome parade (not a typical costume)
(also, admission: cheated & blurred background in Photoshop.)
