Hola! Hello! Bonjour! Szerbus! Ciao! My name is Catalina and I'm a freelance photogrher based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hola! Me llamo Catalina y son una fotografa en Charlotte, Carolina del Norte. Although a straight-A student in high school, I loathed and somehow managed to skip Physics in order to print in the dark room. Now, with the passing of each day, I am more and more passionate about photography and the moments I can capture through my lens - abstract or otherwise. Enjoy!

Tango in Buenos Aires, Argentina

On our recent trip to South America, Juan and I celebrated our 3-year wedding anniversary
(a month early!) by going to Buenos Aires, Argentina for 3 days and 2 nights.
For quite a long time before the trip, while in Chile, and upon arriving in Buenos Aires, all I wanted, I told Juan, was to see some tango in La Boca.

I want tango!

I wanted to hear it, to feel it, to film it, and, of course, to photograph it.
On our 2nd day in Buenos Aires, we met up with a friend of Juan's and off we went via taxi
to La Boca, and specifically to El Caminito, a group of 3 streets that are tourist-oriented,
full of amazing vibrant colors, cafes, and tango dancers at almost every cafe.

And so, my wish came true.

We grabbed an ice cold beer, sat down at a cafe and watched 2 men play some amazing tango music, and I was in absolute awe as the young couple photographed below moved seamlessly across the floor, almost as if they were floating above the ground.

I was in heaven.

I truly can't put these feelings of awe and happiness into words.

I hope my images speak for themselves.






I truly truly hope to return some day and watch some more tango in Buenos Aires.



The black and white tango photos are truly amazing.



I am eagerly awaiting the rest of the photos from your trip.



Super-hermosas! Muy creativo el imprimarlas en color sepia. Lo hace parecer como si fueran del 1920 o 1930 cuando el tango estuvo en su apogeo con Carlitos Gardel.



beautiful images caty! - denise.


a mi tambien me encanta el tango, y lo oigo cada vez que puedo, tengo en mi biblioteca de musica a Mariano Mores, A Piazzola, etc claro que a GArdel sin duda, y cuando me pongo nostalgico me pongo a oir tango. Besos Vanessa
PD Muy buenas las fotos
