Night is the period between sunset and sunrise in which we are meant to sleep but nights mean so much more than that. The sky turns dark, cities come alive when the colourful light goes on. Night time is when we start partying and go out dancing or we chose to spend some time outside counting the stars and relax our mind from a busy day.
I love taking photos of cities at night. The colours of a city combined with a dark sky cannot get any better than this. The photo below has been taken in the Auckland harbour, New Zealand.
This post is in response to the one word photo challenge: ‘night’.
For this week’s photo challenge “Grid” I chose one of my photos of the World trade centre memorial in New York City.
Visiting this place was very emotional. When I was standing in front of the memorial all the pictures I remembered from the news were running through my head and even after so many years, I cannot believe what happened; still cannot understand how people can kill so many innocent people. May the victims rest in peace.
A tribute of remembrance and honour, a tribute to the past and a place of hope for the future.

Now I would like to show you around in San Telmo, an arty neighbourhood in Buenos Aires. It is one of the oldest suburbs in Buenos Aires which is blessed with cobblestoned streets, an amazing weekly antique street market on Sundays and many great cafes and restaurants. San Telmo has its own flair which you don’t want to miss.
Where is San Telmo situated? It lies six blocks from Plaza de Mayo, bounded to the north and south by the Microcentro and La Boca, and to the east and west by Puerto Madero and Avenida 9 de Julio. Walking through the market in San Telmo, listening to the tango music and watching the dancers on the streets felt like I was arrived in Argentina, everything else was like being in a big city but this neighbourhood with its special charm got me.
When you walk through the alleys in San Telmo you can see a lot of amazing graffiti street art.
San Telmo has some charming cafes and restaurants to chill out and to enjoy an empanada.
When strolling through the streets of San Telmo I came across the smallest house in Buenos Aires, how fascinating.
Buenos is a great city to visit but I couldn’t wait to escape into the nature of Patagonia. Stay tuned for my posts on the beautiful South of Argentina and Chile.
