Celular / Cellphone


Un tipico transeunte argentino y suicida hablando por celular entre los autos de la Avda Corrientes.
A tipical crazy person talking with his cellphone in the middle of a traffic jam in Avenida Corrientes. Argentina has the saddest record: in a 38 million inhabitants country more than 7000 dies every year in car accidents, one of the world highest rates.
Leica M3, Summicron 50/2, TMAX100 HC110

cell phones stuck to heads is a crazy sight. what did these people do before they got a cell phone? I am guessing they "talked to themselves." The cell phone must have been a delight but pity the person on the other end who either listens or puts their phone down and picks it up later.

Your photograph reminds me why I should never buy a cell phone.

I hope you get to see the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak that came to Brookville, Ohio yesterday. It is the first one I have seen since we moved here 44 years ago.

Ale - have you ever heard of the Darwin Awards, given to people who get themselves killed by their own stupid, and often humorous, actions? Might be worth a google.

By the way, what were you doing out in the middle of that traffic?

Take a look at my Monday post. There's supposed to be one of these in BsAs (if it hasn't been dug up). Can you find it?

Hi all

Para Fenix: no se que estaba haciendo, en realidad yo saque mi Leica por el sunroof del auto y salio ese tipo caminando. En Buenos Aires la locura del trafico es cada vez peor. Saludos

To Abraham: cellphones are great help, but lately they became a strong obsession, too bad.
I see the picture of the bird, wonderful! I were in Ohio in 1999, in Cincinatti and near in a small town called Harrison, are you near them?

To Bob: I´ll google that later. I was stuck in a trafic jam, took my Leica thru my SUV sunroof and took the picture. Imagine my surprise when I developed the film!
Regarding the Billiken, as far as I know it is a kids magazine with more than 50 years publishing.

Regards to all!

Ale

Ale, lo prometido es deuda pero vas a tener que disculpar las fotos porque el Commonwealth Avenue Mall, que es donde está la estatua, hoy era un manicomio de gente por el tema de la Marcha del Pan por el Hambre. En otro momento, con mejor luz y sin gente para poder tomar distancia, voy a sacar fotos de ese boulevard que es bellísimo. Acá podes ver las fotos de la estatua y la placa al pie. No se ve bien pero creeme si te digo que debe ser una de las estatuas más feas de Sarmiento que he visto, pobre maestro... Bueno, al menos lo pusieron en el mejor barrio de Boston. :) Un abrazo.

Gracias por las fotos Fenix!
Una pregunta: el Comonnwealth Ave es donde estan todas las embajadas?
Un abrazo
Ale

Creo que sólo hay una o dos embajadas en Commonwealth Ave. La mayoría de las embajadas y consulados están en las torres de oficinas, a unas cuadras del parque.
