La Boca

Probably the most famous part of Buenos Aires, La Boca assaults your eyes with its vivid colours and garish figurines greeting you from the balconies above. The queues of coaches unloading their tourists only add to the commercial sheen smothering the streets. Every few metres someone dressed as a tango dancer asks if you want your photo taken with them. Don’t they know Alpha Whiskey almost always stays behind the camera?The general advice is that one should only take a bus or taxi to La Boca, owing to its notoriety as an unsafe neighbourhood.Yeah. We walked there. In the blistering heat.Once we had navigated through the rainbow-splashed streets, we found respite from the heat in a small café where we were treated to some rather charming tango dancing.  La Boca is very much a tourist trap but colour is always appealing to a photographer’s eye and there was certainly a surplus of it here. Not just the buildings but the impressively vibrant graffiti and wall sculptures too.All images taken with the EM-5 and 12-40mm F/2.8.

Yeah. We walked there. In the blistering heat.

Once we had navigated through the rainbow-splashed streets, we found respite from the heat in a small café where we were treated to some rather charming tango dancing.
