STL DPB On The Road: Buenos Aires

.
It's 4:55 AM Sunday morning and we just got up to go to the airport for out flight to El Calafate. We had a little time for a walk when we got to Buenos Aires yesterday afternoon so we went to famous Recoleta Cemetery. Eva Peron is the best known resident but her tomb, shared with many family members, is not so impressive. There is still lots of weepy funerary sculpture to photograph. More later if possible.

That is a great picture. Is she doing that because you're a lawyer? i'M Joking. I really seems that you should be teaching a photography class. I think you would easily have more than 100 people immediate enrole. You always manage to captivate, hope you have a great remainder of your trip!

Lovely, Bob. One of my favorite photography venues are cemeteries. There's so much potential for the living among the dead...

Great shot! I must 50 or 60 photos from the Recoleta Cemetary. What an interesting place.

This is such a wonderful image. The perpetual mourner I guess. I'm not a huge cemetery photographer but this one is just beautiful. Can't wait for these next photos coming up.

There's nothing worse than a malidler. So inefficient.
