Father and Son Sitting on a Bench

Argentinean Men Sitting on a Bench in Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Portraits of locals pursuing their daily life in Buenos Aires are one of my favorite subjects. It gives an even deeper insight into the city. Don't know whether these men are related but they seem very close with each other. Thus I assume they are father and son. They were telling and listening to each other's news stories and gossip and it seems that they enjoyed the little break from the stroll through Puerto Madero. This scene was full of closeness and hence so worth the picture.

Ah, I so agree. Would have been even lovelier to enlarge. The lives of the locals, that's what a city is all about.

I don't know...I think dad is saying, "Why don't you ever listen to me? I told you not to marry her!"

Nah, just kidding. It's really a great portrait! But I think the son has his eye on you!

Looks like a movie scene. Something like "El hijo de la novia".

Same forehead - father and son most likely. Lovely photo.

Nice slice of local life

In addition to the people, I find the street interesting. Must be difficult to bicycle over.

There are only a few decent parks where I'm from where I can sit down and have a chat without feeling uncomfortable.

This one is such a nice sight.
