Bas and Dani - Campo Wedding

Bas and Danisa got married and it was off the charts incredible! In true Argentine style at a campo with gauchos, horses, a crazy massive asado (BBQ), ALL the teeny details handmade and designed by Dani, dancers who got everyone out on the lawn to boogie, friends, family, loads of love and last but certainly not least, an incredible couple that I am super proud to call my friends. Gracias amigas, here's to years of happiness xxxx

Ray Rocks Almagro

Look at this guy! He was such a sweetie.

Look at this guy! He was such a sweetie.

I couldn't wait to post Ray's photos of our tour though Almagro today. Not only did the weather cooperate but, we had some fabulous subject matter entering our frames. Ray said he needed some work on his composition, I disagree! Each image is thoughtful and interesting. What do you think? Oh, and Ray is not only an excellent photographer he was also a break dancer back in the day. This, I love.

Warm Thoughts on a Chilly Day

fishing

It's been an extremely mild winter here in Buenos Aires. So much so that it almost mimicked the summer in my hometown, Toronto. It has been wonderful, until today. Damp, cold, bone chilling wind which resembles Irish weather and when you've been supremely spoiled, it's just plain awful. So, I decided to go back to the beginning of the summer, when I visited some ex-passengers from the ship. Pat, Henry and their dog, Tattoo welcomed me into their little slice of Swedish heaven in Töcksfors. With similar landscape and summertime activities to my native, Canada, I felt right at home. Clear cool lakes, lakes on top of mountain tops, boat rides, doggie selfies, chilly swims, fishing, cleaning and eating our catch. Blissful tranquility and a little slice of sunshine on this dreary day. Breeze though the slideshow and feel the warmth!

For all these shots I used my fabulous Fuji XT1 and my sweet 14mm prime lens. I love this camera, if you are thinking about going mirrorless, send me a message, I'd be happy to chat with you about it.

NOLA Beer and Chicken Y'all!

Well, I imagine that photo got your attention? If not, you are dead inside (or vegetarian). When fried chicken is done to absolute perfection, you have to bow down. NOLA Gastropub has nailed it!

NOLA is chef, Liza Puglia and her boyfriend brew master, Francisco Terrin of Bröeders brew fame. I visited them in the spanking new Palermo restaurant last week. They have perfected simplicity with Liza's New Orleans style home cooking and Francisco's house crafted beer. The crispy friend chicken is off the charts good (with the XXX sauce, if you are missing some spice in your life) and happy hour pints for $25 pesos, daily from 5-8pm. Needless to say, NOLA has been a hit since their doors opened a few weeks ago.

For this shoot, I used natural window light with my amazing new Fuji XT1 and wide 14mm prime lens for most of the interior shots. For the food photos, I bounced a speed light and used my Nikon D600 with a 24-70mm lens. I reduced the shutter speed for these shots as well to allow some ambient light. My boyfriend, Hernan was my hand model ;) Tough job, friends!

If you live in Buenos Aires, get your butt over to NOLA at Gorriti 4389. Here's a link to a past NOLA event I covered a few years back.

*Update: NOLA's Happy Hour prices are now $30pesos/pint. Amazing deal!

*Read what Liza from NOLA has to say about her first month as a restaurant owner in BA.
