A bit of color I

The three photographs were taken with a Rolleiflex 2.8C, Xenotar 2.8/80, Fuji Provia 100F slide film (click on thumbnails for full size image, copyright cmfreaza 2006).- The "lapacho" is a very appreciated tree for the construction industry due to its wood is very hard and durable. The lapacho flowers from August to November, the flowers replace the leaves and my city is very nice during this time; the second one is a view on the river Parana along the promenade during a stormy day and the third one is a rural way .-
