Face of the Day-6

Tango in San Telmo, Pablo & Inez 
This is one of my favorite photos that I have taken over the years. It was my first trip trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina and this was the last day I was there. I had been to this area of the city, San Telmo, on Sunday and it was lively very festive and pack with people. On this day which was now Thursday, I was walking around the city and decided to cut through San Telmo on my way back to the Hotel. I saw this couple gently dancing and stop to watch them as they were very elegant compared to most of the tango dancers you see on the streets. I almost got lost in the moment before I raised my camera and took a couple of images of them. As soon as I stopped they just walked away and left the park and I thought, wow, I took those photos just in time before they disappeared.  A few years later I learned their names on another trip I took to Argentina.

A Face a Day-5

Old Time Photographer-Mexico City
When I took this photo the New Age of Digital Photography was gaining ground at a fast rate. I'm sure it wasn't long after this, that this gentleman was hard press to find any work especially now with iphones and selfie sticks. I sure he took a lot of photos of tourist and young lovers in the park in his day but since he shot Polaroid he wouldn't even have any memories of the photos he took.

A Face a Day-3

La Munequita, Antigua, Guatemala 
La Munequita, or the Little Doll, this is what this little girl reminded me of when I saw her standing there with her cute little outfit on. If your wondering what she has in her mouth, she is drinking milk from a plastic bags. In Guatemala, and other countries in Central and South America its common to sell milk and water in these little plastic bags. I guess its cheaper that selling them in bottles or cartons.
