BA, the Last Word

BA

When I say ‘the Last Word’, I don’t mean that I’m going to be able to give you all the low down you’ll need to get yourself around BA, far from it. This is more the last word on my own particular journey, the final entry of my South American journal. Even though I started and ended my journey here, I don’t feel...

Wandering Lost in Buenos Aires

I had given myself three days in Buenos Aires before heading down south to El Calafate, just to have a little bit of time to re-orientate myself. I enjoy wandering round a city, so I’d set out early in the mornings, my Sony A7RII camera in hand, with very vague plans. I’m not really one for checking out the main sites and like to see...

Photo of the Day: 3 – Cherubs cherubing

Cherubs

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 like the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires 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...
