This is the Estadio Alberto J. Armando (stadium located in the La Boca district of Buenos Aires. It is home of the Boca Juniors, one of Argentina's most famous football clubs.

Gradients, overlays and interplays of patterns, close comparison of soft and hard. You've got it all here, Marilyn,

Saludos,

Mary

Very good idea to shoot the shot in this way Marilyn! The fence is too fine-meshed to get a good shot otherwise, I think.

It still gives a nice idea of the stadium.

Thank you, Mary and Ria. Yes, although my lens is small, the mesh was too fine even for it. Getting the fence partway up didn't look right, so I decided to be unconventional. The stadium is such a strong symbol of the passion of these lands for football (soccer) that I couldn't just ignore it!! I'm glad you like the result.

Greetings, Marilyn

Thanks for, Mira and Amelia. If you can't get in, what can you do? Try to make something out of what's there - that's my motto. I'm glad you think I was successful. Greetings, Marilyn
