Cruising the Tigre River in Buenos Aires, Argentina is a fascinating experience and during my visit I had a great time with my camera capturing everything from humble homes with their rickety docks to huge mansions with manicured lawns and fancy boats. I learned during the cruise that the Tigre Delta is one of the largest in the world and it does not empty into the sea or ocean. Instead the water flows into the Río de la Plata, which is a humongous river that separates Argentina and Uruguay. The guide also mentioned that the islands and canals of the Tigre is what Venice would have looked liked before it got developed. I took hundreds of photographs during the cruise and one of my favorite subjects was that of a boat all rusty and dilapidated abandoned beside one of the islands. I love the contrast between the orange-red-brown color of the rust and the greenness of the lush vegetation in the background. The reeds growing out of the muddy water isolating the boat from the rest of the river also created a sense of finality on the fate of the boat. I’m glad we were sailing slowly as it allowed me to take a good number of photos of the boat from various angles. Below are more photos I took of the rusty beauty in the Tigre. Hope you guys like them.
