This image was shot in Buenos Aires and was always a shot I liked. It was shot in a bad part of the town. I didn’t know it at the time so I just shot images. I like the two brothers (I presume) siting on the cub waiting for something.
While wandering around the water front of Buenos Aires I cam to a series of derelict ships that look like they were tied to the docks there and forgotten. This ship looked like it used to be some sort of big dinner cruise boat. It was completely stripped and all the was left was rusting metal. Now of course I love rust and decay and I really liked the symmetry.
While in Ushuaia one of the southern most cities in South America I came across this shot. Two boats and old life boat and some other boat. Not sure if they are related but the shot works with foreground and background. It is kind of ghostly so I messed with the image somewhat to give it a different look.
Buenos Aires is a very interesting city to visit. Beautiful and sometimes dangerous but also mysterious. The shipyard area which is dangerous so I am told is cool place to take pictures but probably not the greatest place to visit. No one told me that though. So, liking rust and all I came across docks full of rusty boats and if they weren’t at the docks someone drove them down the river, grounded them and walked away. An awful lot of junk and rust and you know how I like rust. This is one of the resting hulks. Always wish I knew the back story. How did it get there, when, why etc.
Sometimes you take a photo and you wish you could go back in time and see what something looked like in its prime. This shot was made of a rusted hull of a ship in Buenos Aires. From what I could tell this was a party boat of some type. This image is of what I presume was the dining room. As you can see all the wood and content is gone. I just loved the look, geometry, and of course the rust. This was hit in a very dangerous part of Buenos Aires, so while it was being taken I was always watching out for a mugger as well as the few friends that were with me were on constant guard. I have a lot of rusty ship images from this trip and maybe I’ll post a few more in the near future.
This is a shot that I always liked and finally decided to post. It was shot in Buenos Aires which is an interesting place to visit. Lots of rust and abandoned ships and buildings. This guy was just rowing his boat up this extremely busy and dirty river. He had a mission and purpose. I messed with the image a bit and grunged it a bit. I love the way his face peeks out and the splash from his oar.
One things I enjoy doing is street photography. Shooting people and scenes while walking around a town or an area. This shot was made in Buenos Aires and is of an hunched over lady rushing up the street and on a mission. She was moving very fast. I liked the wall, color of her clothing and the packages she was carrying.
I am packed and ready tho fly and a long flight I have ahead of me. I’ll be in China for the next 10 days promoting Phase One’s PODAS workshops. I have a full schedule and will visit a number of areas in China. As internet connections permit I’ll blog images taken on the trip. I love travel but not the flights. This trip is a series on three flights the last one nearly 17 hours long. I have loaded my ipad with books and movies so hopefully when not sleeping I can stay occupied.
Today’s image was taken in Buenos Aires and has been a favorite of mine for years. You can read a lot into it.
Another shot made not to far from the image I posted yesterday. This one is family time. You see a lot of people sitting outdoors and watching the day go by. You see this is South Philadelphia too. Always makes for some good photos.
There is a lot to like about Buenos Aires. It is a city of color, intrigue, danger and some pretty cool people. In the La Boca area of the city is a charming colorful section of shops and homes. Mostly made of corrugated tin. On the streets there are couples that grab tourists and tango with them, for a price of course. everyone has their hand out for the dollar. So, while enjoying this area photographically I saw this girl waiting for her next dance. I loved the image because of the leg and head and the way they looked. I took the images made with a Canon 5dII and put it in my iPad and manipulated it using a great new program called snapseed. I will post another image tomorrow from the same area.
Thought it was time for a rust shot. I love rust and have quite a few new images on the subject so prepare yourself in the coming weeks. This was shot in Buenos Aires of an old abandoned ship at dock. It literally looks like one day they docked the ship and then just walked away from it. There are dozens of these ships along several docks in Buenos Aires.
Since I did a pattern shot yesterday, why not texture today? So, here is a rusty art photo. I love rust and anyone following this blog knows that. This is rust from a ship in Argentina. Buenos Aires seems to be a good city for rust. This was found on an old boat being scrapped.
