Red Bicycle, by Mercedes Noriega

This photograph was taken on a Sunday morning at Mechita, a small town 80 km away from Buenos Aires city. I happened to like architecture, so that old building caught my attention, but it wasn’t enough.. I still needed a main object for my photo, so I borrowed the bike from a girl going by. I didn’t want her on my the picture, cause I just wanted a portrait of the real thing, the desolated town and its beautiful colors.
