L is for Laissez-faire in the Parque Centenario

Girls Playing Tag while Boys Drinking Mate in the Parque Centenario in Buenos Aires, Argentina
While the girls were playing tag around the boys, the boys were sitting calmly and coolly on the grassy ground of the park sipping their mate gourd. If you want to soak in some authentic Buenos Aires, then the Caballito neighborhood awaits your arrival. San Telmo is historic, Palermo is trendy but Caballito is authentic. There are several parks in this neighborhood for all kinds of leisure activities. The picture was taken in the Parque Centenario which is the biggest green space in this barrio. The park is perfectly fitting for a laissez-faire afternoon.

Perfect photo showing that kids around the world are more the same than different.

It looks like spring has arrived. It does not seem long ago well all the people in your photos were wearing overcoats

I like your people shots, they are so strong. Being new at photo blogs I'm shy about photographing people so I stick mostly to buildings.

I've always heard laissez-faire in economic terms - let the market decide.

Your meaning is probably closer to the original; - let it be.

Nice.
