I loved the flowers, but they didn't have enough “oomph” somehow. Then I thought about another photo I took in Argentina this summer, of the Caminito, home to the early Italian immigrants to Argentina. The buildings in the portside district are still painted in the same hodgepode of colors that have defined the area since the beginning of the 20th century. Just looking at the picture reminds me of how much fun we had walking around, enjoying the sidewalk scene.
How's that for “oomph?”
