It's all in the Details

Last week I posted about my visit to the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires Argentina.  Besides being a historic destination, it also is a place of much beauty.  Anyone who enjoys photographing details will have a fantastic time taking photos in this fascinating place.

You can focus in on all the details atop the various vaults.

You can locate cobwebs that somehow seem appropriate for a cemetery.

You can find little statues that give you a fright.

And you can photograph the angelic and the not so angelic in the same frame.

You can compose a moody scene.  This one became the cover of the photo book I created about this trip.

Or, you can create a simple work of art from a lamp post and the sun.

I've actually sold copies of this shot.

If you find yourself in Buenos Aires, don't miss seeing this spectacular place.

Okay, now you're showing off. Superb photos! I especially like the cobwebs and the eyes of the bust, and the angelic and non-angelic. Great work, Sharon!

Incroyable series of images Sharon, I'm glad I don't have to pick a favourite :)

The angelic and not so angelic is my favourite of these, Sharon.

Indeed, all true. But where are the cats? I've been there three times, and each visit was accompanied by the packs of cats that followed me around, and were hanging out everywhere.
