Foto Ruta in Buenos Aires

Happy Friday everybody! Today is all about sharing a few personal images I’m quite excited about! Foto Ruta is a Buenos Aires company run by two awesome expats, Becky and Joss. Part photography lesson, part photo scavenger hunt, part tour, it’s a great way to get to know the city while sparking your creativity. Attendees vary from total amateurs to pros. I signed up for five foto rutas thinking they would be a good way to challenge myself both technically and creatively. And I’m really happy that I did. All of the following images were taken this past Tuesday, in Villa Crespo, one of my favourite BA neighbourhoods.

Clue: Antique or Old

Clue: Creeping and Crawling

Clue: Road to Nowhere

Clue: Meat me on Time

Clue: Sky’s the Limit

Clue: Tree of Life

Clue: Rich vs. Poor

Clue: Urban Decay

    Really awesome photos Allison….it was great to meet you on Tuesday. Looking forward to many more FRs with you. Great site by the way!

    what a GREAT idea! I want to go on that tour…in every city we visit! I’d LOVE to do something similar in Santiago. Afterwards was there some kind of review of the photos you took?

    I love the very first two something old pictures the most!

    It’s a really cool format – you meet first for about a half an hour at a funky local cafe. In that half hour, they tell you about the neighbourhood and talk about some photography basics. Then you go out for a couple of hours, shoot your clues, and meet up over drinks where you select one image per clue, share it, and then Joss critiques your images. Joss and Becky told me they don’t usually get pros attending (Tuesday was a mix of beginners, really keen amateurs, and me), but I can’t imagine a better tour. I agree with you, Kyle, I’d go in any city.

    Great pics and wonderful interpretation of the clues!

    @Kyle, if you are looking for a photo tour with a little more intensive learning, a tour of a cool barrio and a review of all your images with a full critique I operate Day Clicker Photo Tours. It might interest you. http://www.dayclickerphototours.com/

    Allison, I’m looking forward to lunching with you next week!
