The Café Rivas in San telmo

If you´re hooked on coffee and appreciate European style coffee, you´l be glad to hear that one of the European customs that argies have adopted is the Café shops that you commonly find in France, Italy and Spain.
These "Cafés" or "cafeterias", were places where guys hanged out to watch a soccer game, talk bout politics, etc, kinda like a Pub in the U.K.
They serve the Italian and french style coffees served in small cups called "demi tasse"opposed to the north American watered down versions.

A typical example of these coffee shops in Buenos Aires is the cafe Rivas located in San telmo neighbourhood at the corner of Estados Unidos and Balcarce streets. With its vintage looks and stategically located with a vantage view of the intersection, you can stop by for a fast espresso or"cortado" (espresso with a shot of Milk) or eat lunch or dinner. These places are opened all day long, except on Mondays.

If you like modern stuff, move to Dubai

New things become old and stay for a while, old stuff decays and desapears. Greetings from Vintage town, Montevideo.

Seek and you shall find.

Definitely it does´nt matter where you live there is always something new to photograph. In my quest for spectacular sunsets I found this great angle from which to capture the city of Montevideo´s skyline.
El Puerto del buceo has a long pier that brings you far enough into the river to catch the city and  still get some foreground. But I´ve been to this part of town many times but never saw this spot. Its a matter of perseverance.

Waves of the River Plate

Last Sunday afternoon was a very depressing one, so I dashed to the Rambla to see if I could catch a nice sunset. To my surprise the River Plate was at its peak bashing waves against the river walk, and as Robert Capa once said. If your photos are not good enough, its because you were´nt close enough.
definitely I got close enough, enough to get soaked at least, but I got some nice shots too.
