    Cool photo! And you have some absolutely phenomenal photos on this site. But just a little correction on this one: Defensa street is in San Telmo not Recoleta though both are very popular barrios among tourists.
    (HK:) thanks Jeff, of course, you are right, changed it!

The story behind "Fresh Juice in Buenos Aires"

I have a new lens :)
You might see some more of this 15mm fish-eye in the future, though it distorts (actually, that is the point), I like it a lot.

This was taken on busy Defensa street in Buenos Aires’ deservingly popular San Telmo district (not Recoleta as previously mentioned, thanks to the comment of Jeff, below!). Filled with antique shops and tourists during the day and nice bars and restaurants (and tourists) in the evening, it is a great place to visit.

Many people try hard to make a few cents, many are selling their goods like panflutes, bombillas (for drinking mate) and other stuff on the street. But for me the only irresisteble thing is fresh juice and this man was happy enough to press me a large plastic cup for about one Euro. In the back is a man sleeping on the street, showing the fine and thin lines between wealth, work and poverty…
