People Watching on Florida in Buenos Aires

Spring was to arrive shortly, the weather was crisp but beautiful, and the pedestrian mall, Florida, was a great place for people-watching.

UBC Botanical Garden in late September

The west coast's soft rains are starting to return.  Many blossoms remain, catching the moisture beautifully in the overcast light.

Sandro y Los Fuego graffiti

Los de Fuego (Those of the fire) was one of the first rock and roll bands in Argentina (1960-1966).  Its vocalist was Sandro, now deceased but fondly remembered not only by the artist portraying him in this beautiful aerosolgrafia, but also by fans adding notes nearly half a century later.  Some remembered the group both by the lead singer's name and the group's name.  Fire naturally plays a dominant role in the art.
