we're just ordinary people

Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina.


This is Buenos Aires light...and I am temporarily leaving my black and white phase because this afternoon glow must be appreciated in color.

    Reminds me of the video for the song "Estoy Perdido," by Luis Fonsi...

    wow... this is terrific - the walkway glows.
  • Professor Bop PRO 7y

    Very spooky ... the shadows and the glow on the pavement are intense. Nice work!

    ...We don't know which way to go

    Well, you definitely know what to do! Lovely shadow work Monica!
  • Stephan PRO 7y

    The bit of the rimlight off the silhouette pushes the man's silhouette just enough out of the shadows. Very nice work with the hard contrasts here.
  • Rui Palha PRO 7y

    Beautiful atmosphere.
  • african. identity? 7y

  • SkyShaper PRO 7y

    We're all pieces of MEAT in the world, and I have stopped censoring my words; I speak unclearly and often purposely, because I feel like here lately I am morphing into Charles Bernstein and E. Elias Merhige at the exact same interval and I quit writing for an audience, to hide what isn't there, to be there with what doesn't remain and what else is left? This is an indication of my feelings; how writing is nothing more than more breaths to be taken in this world, and Oh how joyous I am to be.

    I love the color and the surrounding 'darkliness' here; a dramatic puissance of glory!

  • Adrian PRO 7y

    Fabulous idea with the light!
