Daily Photo – A Final Sunset
There is that languishing pain of the final day of an amazing trip. You know the feeling. It’s the old, "Man, this sucks… I have to leave tomorrow…" feeling. I was trying not to think that while I shot this final sunset in Argentina. Truthfully, I was thankful for the clouds and the perfect light.

Natalia in Argentina

Not everything in Argentina was rough, and here is a little yang for the yuri.
We rented a car from a horrible company called Wagen. Don’t worry, I’ll get to the girl part. The car’s battery died very quickly, leaving us stranded in El Chalten, which is the hub from which many trails spawn out into the Andes. We had to wait a whole day for the horrible company, once again, called Wagen, to come out and replace the battery after their very unhelpful employee made us jump the car, to little avail. If you are ever out in Argentina and you need a reliable car, don’t call Wagen. Even worse, they would not give any partial refund. You could get stuck out in the wild with no chance for help. Luckily we were close to a phone, and that phone was close to an aspiring model to help my camera wile away the hours. Okay that sounds stupid. But it’s kinda true.
While in El Chalten, we stayed in a charming little hotel. At night, I would stay up late and process photos, drink coffee, and listen to music. This is what I always like to do after dinner. Maybe that sounds lame. Anyway, the nice Argentine family that ran the hotel took notice of me and I got to know them. The mom that ran the hotel had a 20-year-old daughter named Natalia who had a unique look but had never modeled before. It’s a small town way down by Antarctica and they don’t have many model/photographer resources down thataway. Anyway, since we ended up with an extra few hours, I asked if she wanted to go out and shoot. Natalia’s English wasn’t so great, but I was able to draw things out in the dirt like calling a play in flag football. We ended up with a lot of good shots that I will add over the next few months.
