This first pic was taken in Plaza Dorego around midnight on a weeknight. I think this was a drug deal going down, with some other guys sorting through the garbage? shooting dice? It was still 75 degrees, jazz had just ended in Del Arbol and we were strolling home.
We have now lived in San Telmo long enough that we recognize and are recognized by some of the locals... I have watched this old guy several times now in the evenings..he is always dressed to kill, and very slowly hobbles out into the center of busy Defensa and waits for a cab ... i am tempted to follow him some night.
One evening we were walking downtown on Reconquista and spied these two contrasting buildings.... I wasn't using trick photography... the modern one really is curved...
On one of the torrential rain days, I managed to make it to painting workshop at Central Cultural Recoletta. The workshop is held in a great room in the top floor, and this is a view out the window. Central Cultural Recoletta was originally a catholic monastery, and this great cemetery (Evita is buried here among other famous folk) was originally the orchard of the monastery.
