015. cloudy skies

Although the cemetery really shines on a pleasant day, don’t let ominous weather postpone a visit. In fact, cloudy skies add a special touch… it is a cemetery after all:

Sometimes the sky itself can be just as interesting. Darken the foreground to add a little spookiness:

Cloudy days are wonderful for photographers since direct light washes out a lot of detail in this sea of concrete, granite & marble. Set your camera on black & white mode for better shots if you can’t return another day.

014. aerial view, etoile hotel

The Etoile Hotel is one of the few places in Buenos Aires with views that look directly over Recoleta Cemetery… a great place to stay for the taphophile in all of us.

I used to recommend going to the 14th floor, ordering a drink from the bar & stepping out on the balcony for some wonderful pics. Unfortunately it seems that they’ve caught on. Non-guests can no longer sneak in for a nice view, but if you want to pay for a room this view can be yours:
