Patagonian Dog Daze

El Calafate Bus Terminal

Packs of dogs, large and small, have been ubiquitous everywhere I’ve been to in Patagonia so far. They’re all very gentle, calm and friendly and like this pair at the bus station in El Calafate, Argentina, they enjoy spending most of their time lounging about. A few minutes before I snapped this, the one on the right was laying in the middle of a berth, and wasn’t in too much of a hurry to move when a bus pulled in. Like the dogs, the driver was also very patient.

    The terminal is very clean; I like the concept of the trash can on the wall as well. The reflections in the doos are interesting.. My artist’s mind would place a reflection of you in the door ‘straight ahead,’ though i see a partial reflection in the door to the right. The door to its right has and almost parallel reflection of the support beams.. yet the person’s reflection is missing… or is that ‘reflection’ actually a person in side the building?!

      That is a reflection, but not of me. By the way, I wish I would have thought of much of what you mention before I took the picture. 🙂

        you are always observant w/reflections; a watercolorist once pointed out that when something leads the eye ‘behind’ something, then the eye expects that something to emerge from the other side. because of that ‘training’ my eye always connects the dots and deciphers what’s there.

        sometimes i wish i could turn off that function, but most of the time i am grateful!
