Photo Shooting Under the Crane

Photo Shooting at the docks of Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires, Argentina
The old discarded cranes at the Puerto Madero docks are not only eye catchy but also a popular photo point for all sorts of people. The other day I watched this young Argentine lady lying on the crossbar of the crane foot. She was posing like a pro and was been filmed and photographed by a little group. Don't think I have seen her before but judging from the ease of her performance she could be a model or singer.

The bold red and strong lines of the crane are a definite attraction. The young lady draped across the bar most certainly looks like she is no stronger to that side of the camera.

That's funny because today on The Villages I posted a photo of a man taking a photo!

Great minds....

This looks like an intriguing background. And that model must have a good sense of balance. Maybe she should be working with a net?

These type of places always offer great photo opps.

I took tons of picture of the cranes at Puerto Madero and you're right, they are eye catchy. The girl looks pretty young, maybe she's a star on the rise.

I can see why photographers like to use the cranes as props! I like how you captured the whole scene.

In this shot, the photographers actually look more shapely than the posing model!

She must be a model because not everyone can balance like that.

I know that it's a bit late but I just found your blog (and let me say that I'm loving it!).

Most certantly this photo refers to a young girl posing for her fifteen birthday book. As in the USA exists the so called "Sweet sixteen" here the tradition is to throw a big party when girls turn fifteen. They rent a place specially for the party, invite hundreds of people, arrange a fancy catering, etc. And none of this partys would be complete without the birthday girl showing to all the people present the photos that she took pretending to be like a model or something. Puerto Madero is a very popular place to do this sessions and you could see this any day you go there.

Hope this is useful for someone!
