Dreaming Argentina: Photos from Buenos Aires

Walking through Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires glows with color. Huge swaths of town celebrate an off-white, silvery hue of European influenced architecture. Mixed into the cityscape are neighborhoods and buildings bursting with vibrancy.

The famous Casa Rosada in the Plaza de Mayo, known internationally for Evita‘s influence and speeches from its porch side while serving as the country’s House of Government, offers one such example. Near the water the neighborhood La Boca celebrates a wealth of multi-toned buildings believed to be colored originally with paints taken from boat preparations left over at port.

Off-and-on over the next while I’ll be looking at wine in Argentina, as tasting and interviews have continued since return to the States last month. When traveling Argentine wine most of our time was spent in Mendoza. However, we also had a day in the country’s largest city.

Following are photos from Buenos Aires, focusing mainly on a walk through La Boca. I love finding my way into portraits.
