Wish You Were Here: Argentina

I love travel photography for so many reasons: 1) it is great for jogging memories of a place and a specific visit 2) it is often visually interesting because the subjects are new or unusual 3) it describes one's encounters more precisely than they can be told 4) it motivates me to get it together and save up for a vacation (oy).

My pal, Alex, over at From Lara recently went on a leisurely trip to Argentina (lucky). Her photos, many of which she posted, are a consise and very pretty visual diary of her time there.

One of my favorites is of her visit to El Calafate in the Patagonia where she got to walk on the Perito Moreno glacier. Isn't it beautiful! I can imagine the experience was magical.
