Marcos Tango

I’d like you to see a photo. A friend of mine took this beautiful photo that was entered into a photo contest, and unfortunately disqualified for not following the same type of portraiture as August Sanders, a photographer known for taking portraits with people looking directly into the camera.  One could argue, that the eyes looking into the camera would be implied in my friend’s photo. One might also argue that August Sanders didn’t ALWAYS have the subject/s looking directly at the camera. Read the full story »

Bi-Annual Taxi Fare Hike

July 11, 2012 – 7:13 pm |

I’m beginning to get the feeling that I’m experiencing Deja Vu.  In February of this year, taxi prices rose about 20%. Now, last week, in an effort to make someone 25% richer, a fare increase …

My husband is an architect. He’s also an artist. He also loves to build and create and imagine and he never ever stops. Ever. Anyway, I’ve been at him to take some photos of his completed projects. I’ve been working on his website, Estudio Bertolini and want to get some nice shots of some of his projects.

Independance Day Pubcrawl Tonight

July 3, 2010 – 3:17 pm |

This year’s celebration offers traditional American fare: hamburgers, hot dogs, and cold Budweiser; a sharp contrast to the usual Argentine pizza and Quilmes beer. And what is a 4th of July celebration without fireworks? Sparklers and American flags will be supplied to the attendees. With the combination of good ole’ American food and fireworks, one can’t help but feel right at home.

Taxi!

Even though the taxi prices in Buenos Aires are rather inexpensive compared to other world capitals, they still go up every once in a while.  Well, every year to be exact.  Every year since I’ve …

I don’t know why sustainability isn’t a big thing here – we live in such a tropical climate that seems to get worse year after year.  But then again, the word “sustainable” often gets confused …
