Well this was a fun packed day and I leisurely took my time as I had arranged to meet Emma at the Museo Evita for coffee and cake at 5pm so I had the afternoon to wander. Looking at the map I thought the Museo was easy to get to if I cut across the Botanical gardens – how wrong was I! Annie did it again and was completely lost as all the exits were locked so I had to go back to where I had entered. However, I did have a great time cat and people watching. The trees – so beautiful. No wonder there were so many people lying on benches looking at the sky.
So onto the Museo Evita.
It was the musical Evita that certainly made me initially aware of Eva Peron but I wanted to know more about her and the one thing that I came away with was that she was a passionate, driven and hard-working woman and was taken far too soon from this world because of cervical cancer. This is something we take for granted now as it can be treated so effectively if picked up early enough.
The image above was made with the panoramic setting on my X-E2 – I just had to show all of Eva’s hats!
Inside the museum there were many mirrors leading from the first section to the second and I just love shooting reflections.
Oh yes and this woman had style! Looking at these shoes that she had bought in Paris.
On my way back to the hotel again I am fascinated by all the graffiti and but I loved the way this advert was peeling off the wall.
Street life will be covered more in the workshops that I am attending this week but the shot of the traffic just shows how wide the main avenues are and the sky is dark for a reason as it was about to rain…. and I mean rain! Just got back to the hotel in time too.
In the evening I had chosen to go to Don Julio restaurant which wasn’t too far from where I was staying and the reservation was for 10pm (1pm uk time). Again I got lost and went the wrong way so ended up in a taxi. I have always prided myself in being able to naturally navigate – perhaps it is because we are in the southern hemisphere!?!?
The following shots were done on my iPhone and as you can see it was a buzzing place and the speciality there was steak – of course accompanied with a 2011 Malbec.
