It is often said that the Rosarinas (girls from Rosario) are the most beautiful women in Argentina. It is probably true, but then, I suppose that the Porteñas (girls from the port, that is Buenos Aires) have the best smiles.

Unlucky, protecting your home and family is party of the daily life of Argentines, and this especially in large cities. So people make sure all entrances are securely protected, despite the daily bother it might represent. A missing piece, and your safety can be at risk. (Click on picture for high res)

Some street photographers believe that one can shoot and publish anything as long as it is legal. Others believe that some scenes should not be shot, or at least not published without the consent of the subject portrayed. In the later case, the concept of Human dignity is often mentioned, or in clearer words : shoot and publish whatever you like, as long as you respect the Humang dignity of your subjects.

Of course, the question becomes than “How do you define Human dignity” ?  There is evidently no clear answer to that as it might vary a lot depending on your cultural background and personal character traits. What migh seem acceptable to one, might be dismissed by another photographer.

So, I propose we have a look at the picture below taken last Saturday in Rosario. What is your opinion in this regard ?

Old  cars and kids. What a classic mix for a picture.

After the Fiat 500 in Paris and Citroen 2CV in Calafate, I can now add the Renault 4L to this series. And more than the car, the shy little face hiding in its back seat.  (click on pictures for high res)

One of the big trends in modern street photography is to showcase various elements that are completely unrelated but somehow work all together. This picture has no clear meaning or message, only the photographer really knows what was going on in this scene. So, for once, I’ll let your imagination wander. (Click on picture for high res)
