La Boca, Buenos Aires

As the ciruja's story, as the farol, maybe other thing that joins us through tango,
is a strong love to our country. At that same street, above the cat’s bench I found this.
These symbols are virgin of Lujan, patroness of Argentina, San Martin’s portrait, our hero of independence and the house of Tucumán, where
that independence so hard obtained was finally proclaimed in 1816..

I remembered the poet, at the tango “Mi Buenos Aires querido” my dear Buenos Aires, saying
My Buenos Aires,
land of flowers
where I will spend my last days.

My beloved Buenos Aires,
the day I see you again,
there will be no more sorrow or forgetfulness

There's something powerful about this. I could list the attributes but the power feels like it's in the whole. Very nicely seen and shot!! V

I see the story in the images framed in the arch but I also see the colors which get along with each other.
And if may conclude the composition in the portrait mode is excellent.
Very informational caption .
Have a great day .Vote
