    I'm on a business trip to Argentina, Chile, and Peru. Weather the first days was cold and rainy, but yesterday was quite nice. Sunny, cool, with a wonderful blue hour. I took the ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay. It is an old colonial town built in the 1600's with a walled town center. Uruguay is super safe, many people speak English, and the low population mean many areas have lots of nature. The ferry takes an hour. It's a high speed catamaran. I noticed on the way back that the Ferries are Danish - probably the ferries that crossed the Oresund before the bridge was built. After I got back to Beunos Aires, I took a walk through Puerto Madera and caught some shots during the blue hour and later.

    All were shot with the EM1.2 and O12-40. Long exposures were handheld up to 8 seconds.

    In my younger days I hitched from BA to Rio. Got picked up by those old cars in Uruguay like the one used as a "planter".

    Wonderful images! "Handheld up to 8 secs..." how in the world do you manage that, lol?

    Lovely deep blacks in those (the daytime ones, obviously deep blacks in the night shots!).

    Lovely compositions and colours. And I'm also impressed with 8 secs handheld. Top photos.
