Photo of the Day: Cherubs cherubing
Sony A7RII : f2.8@60th : ISO 1600 : EV 0.0 : FE 35mm f/1.4
Always good to get a picture of cherubs in a shot. Going in on a detail like this is also a great way to give an idea of how impressive a building the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires really is. I took the guided tour, like a good tourist, and snapped away with everyone else. It’s never the best way to work and it’s difficult to get anything that captures the splendour all around you. Then I saw these two cherubs sitting there innocently and found a way to say in a picture how wonderfully extravagantly plush the opera house is.
Unfortunately, there is nothing on at the Teatro Colón whilst I’m here. It’s supposed to have some of the best acoustics in the world of large, impressive auditoriums and I would have loved the chance to check it out. Maybe it’s all for the best, as I didn’t pack any formal evening wear. You need it in a place like this. Beautiful.
