Just Another Street in Argentina

While in Argentina, I wish I had more days in Buenos Aires, but I made the most of what i could. This usually involves waking up very early and going to sleep very late. It gets a little hard after a few days, but I get into “content acquisition mode”, and I try not to make excuses for sleep!

Many parts of Buenos Aires are very colorful and fun. I’m not sure how all these individual tenants get together to decide on colors, but they end up looking kinda cool, even with minimal coordination. I guess the guy on the left there just thought, “I’ll paint my wall orange”, and then he did it, and it just looks cool. It kind of reminds me of how rappers can put on the craziest hat in the world and it still looks pretty cool on them. I don’t get it. I only look cool in one kind of hat – a baseball cap (with a mild tone).

    Great photo. Have you seen the ezprints.com calibration photo? Seems to have come from the same street. I got it from them a year or two ago and although I mostly use Mpix for custom work, I still use the print to test/adjust my printing when I try new papers. It is actually quite a difficult picture to print properly, thus making an excellent test for proofing and print adjustments.

    Great picture! by the way, Caminito is more “the most famous street of Argentina” than “just another street in Argentina”!

    Very cool, I remember that place. I have one in my “to post file” from almost that exact place. By the way, do they serve enough meat down there or what? Great wines too!

    Hi Trey!
    I’m new at this HDR business, but keep improving each time I try it :)
    By the way, I’m from Argentina, and also, from La Boca :)
    What Tom Duca’s link says is correct. The colors of the buildings in that street become all from ship-paint leftovers. Since then (and because of all it’s history) Caminito is officialy known as a museum/street. Nowadays neighbors aren’t allowed to change the appearance of this street.
    Well there’s only a few things to say, like: Great site, amazing photos, and.. please tell when you’ll be coming back :P
    That’s all. Best regards from Argentina.
    ;)
