Recoleta, Buenos Aires


The first day of Lent inspired me to share my photos of Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires. It is a stunning place filled with crypts and mausoleums of the elite and famous of Argentina.

I found it a peaceful experience wandering the narrow passageways reflecting on the family histories represented in this place. There is a sense of reverence and quiet even though it is a famous tourist destination.

The beautiful details of the religious icons, iron work and masonry accompanied by the dedications, photos and flowers made it a rich and rewarding day of photography.

There is a link at the bottom for more photos on my web site.
