Full of charm and personality, San Telmo is one of BA's most attractive neighborhoods, with narrow cobbled streets and low-story colonial houses. This is where some of the first homes were built in the early years of the colony, and these elaborate mansions later became conventillos (tenement housing) for European immigrants. Amid the melancholy of homesickness and the merging of musical traditions in the shared patios of the conventillos, tango music was born - San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
At Plaza de Mayo looms the Metropolitan Cathedral, the city’s main Catholic church and, most notably for many tourists, the home church of Pope Francis.

I’ve been living in and traveling to the USA for decades… And, the more I travel in the US the more I realize just how much of it there is to see. I still haven't been to Yellowstone or Yosemite or some of the smaller states. I have only seen a tiny slice of Texas, and have a huge amount of the Midwest left to explore. And then there are the places I always want to go back to — places like the Bay Area, Chicago and New England. Even though I have SO MUCH more to see, here are some of the highlights from my US travel.
"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
