Did you all know I have a free Newsletter? You'll love it... all kinds of great photos and free tips!

This thing is enormous. In grinds and churns as it follows the sun. The metallic petals flex and bend with the light as the sun sweeps across the sky. I had never seen anything like it in my life.

It sits in a park and public walking area of Buenos Aires, Argentina. I walked around it for a while to get a good angle of the monster. My tripod was stuck in customs, so I had to do this one handheld... and do my best to keep the camera as stead as a T-1000.

You all can see the New Video right here! People that got the Newsletter (it's free!) got an early sneak peek!
