These pictures were taken in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I’ve been living for the past few months. The first five are from a street party that was part of Carnaval, a festival that happens in many South American countries right before Lent. Carnaval is celebrated with parades, music, dancing, and the spraying of nieve (literally “snow,” but essentially foam) at all the revelers.

HEY, ROOKIES! Next month’s theme is LOST AND FOUND. We’re looking for writing, illustration, photography, video, collage, etc., on things we have lost and times we’ve been found; on being independent vs. asking for help; on solitude, pros and cons; shyness and the conquering of same; misanthropy and empathy and love and how they can coexist. On everything that makes us feel less alone in this world. Here is where to send your stuff. Thank you! ♥♥♥
