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.

Happy spring, Rookies! We’re currently looking for work on May’s theme: TOGETHER. It’ll be a hopeful month about friendship and community and love-for-love’s-sake and the sentimental feeling you get at the end of the school year. Coming out of hibernation and being at ONE with the WORLD. Working together. Power in numbers. Creative projects, uprisings, benevolent conspiracies. Group therapy, teamwork, THE HIVE. Send us whatcha got: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! ♥
