In response to the Daily Post prompt for July 30th, I immediately thought about creativity. I admire this quality because it doesn’t require money, material goods, or specialized education. All it takes to be creative is to challenge oneself to be expressive, to solve a problem or to see something in a new light.
At the same time, social media reminded me that I was in Buenos Aires nine years ago this month. It was my second trip to the city, the first being the year before, when the Argentine summer brought music and dance out in to the streets from noon to well past dusk. This time it was winter, and although it was chilly and grey and the city was suffering from the great recession, creativity still managed to crop up around nearly every street corner in the city center. Here are some of my favorite photos from that trip. The streets were alive with creativity!
