ARA Uruguay moored as a museum ship in Puerto Madera, Buenos Aires, built in 1874 in England (Birkenhead).
One of the necessities of capturing stock images is to re-visit a site and update the image. This example is of pure coincidence – I didn’t go to Buenos Aires to recapture images but somehow managed to take a picture from almost exactly the same spot – nine years apart. At least it shows that I have consistency in my photography.
The left hand image was captured in 2005 and the one on the right was taken in 2014.
Despite the economic situation in Argentina the authorities have gone to lengths to paint the sailing ship and the old cranes in Puerto Madera. In the background there has also been some significant residential development in the form of sky rise luxury apartment blocks.
Buenos Aires is a beautiful city – rich in history – though still in need of investment in some parts.
