before the PLUNGE

I always knew that walking on the balcony’s edge wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. What would I say, too edgy, as said, and I’m a pretty conservative guy when it comes to adventures, but, you know, the day was so beautiful, the light in the sky so intriguing, the blue so mellow that I couldn’t resist shooting beautiful Buenos Aires and River Plate. Then, suddenly, vertigo got me.

Supposedly, this is the last photo I took. It has been found in my camera’s memory, crashed closed to my body.

Francisco SALAMONE – an architect in the PAMPAS

Architect Francisco Salamone (Leonforte, Sicily, Italy 1897–Buenos Aires, Argentina 1959) built more than 60 municipal buildings (cemetery, city hall, slaughter house) with Art Deco / Futurism elements in several rural communities in Buenos Aires Province. These buildings are the examples of first contemporary architecture in rural Argentina.

more than HAM and CHEESE – in PARMA

Parma is a lovely city. Good food, ham and cheese, good shopping and fine museums. But there’s far more than these.

San Clemente es DIFERENTE

San Clemente is the first, in terms of distance coming from Buenos Aires, seaside resort on the Atlantic coast. Water is dirty and sand is even worst. Hotels are moldy and restaurants serve low quality food.

Well, so, sun is for free and photography still a pleasure. :)
