With this third set of pictures for 2006, I am concluding the "Calendars of the Past" series. It has been fun for me to relive these past 15 years and, even more so, to dig in and work on some shots taken in the 2000's that actually have never seen the daylight since I took them. Now my dilemma is on whether to continue my earlier resolve and only keep working on my newer pictures, of which I have tens of thousands still awaiting my scissors (or better: sliders), or whether I should reconsider and go back as well as forward. Well, I will have to make up my mind, but first I will take some time off from handling digital photos and catch up on things that have been left pending over the past few months as I have been actively working on these UHH posts - and then there are the "joyful hours" required to work on our tax returns ....

This last set will take us first to Argentina's capital city Buenos Aires, then back south to Northern Patagonia's spectacular landscapes around the town of San Carlos de Bariloche, from where we took the "Andean Lake Crossing" sailing on the Lago Nahuel Huapi, Lago Frias and Lago Todos los Santos waters and being carried on buses between the lakes over the Andes, ending at Puerta Varas in Chile on the shores of Lake Llanquihue. I do hope you will find some interesting images in this last set.

As it is my custom, I will do one more post tomorrow, looking back and posting the highlights from this series, selected from the daily sets that had the highest viewer numbers.

These shots were taken mainly with a Konica Minolta A2 camera with a resolution of 8 MP, or with an even smaller Casio pocket camera.

Wonderful, Joe, ##5, 9 & 10 are absolutely terrific. As you say, the Calendar Series comes to the end, but I still hope to see (as promised) more of your beautiful work. Thanks, Joe!

Thank you Susan, I am happy to hear that you like this shot - it is the last one in this series, and also pretty much the last view we had down there in this wonderful area before starting our long trip home.

Thank you very much Eugene - I am pleased to hear that you like these landscape/waterscape shots. I promise I will be back, but it will probably take some time. In the meantime, have a great final weeks of winter and then enjoy the colors and flavors of spring! Joe

Thank you very much Barbara - yes the Recoleta cemetery is quite a unique place to visit in Buenos Aires, so much history and so much beautiful monuments to the departed. This statue touched me particularly as it is obviously the effigy of a rather young lady, luckily I found the reference online and could at least indicate the name - there is a tragic story behind this beautiful monument - and I applaud your intention to search further into it.

Thank you very much Ken for your kind comment and for staying through the entire length of this series and giving me your kind comments every day of the series - I very much appreciate this. And I do love to post on this great site with so many much more talented photographers than I, where I can still learn a lot, but also get such an appreciative audience.

But there is a problem, a real problem: Preparing for such a series, just the selection process, then the textual preparation (which I enjoy and actually learn each time even more about the subjects), then the actual posting and the review of all the responses and pen the replies, all have their cost: TIME, and plenty of it - I love doing it, but it comes at the cost of working on my huge backlog of pictures - I am still stuck in 2016, have two more albums to do for that year before I can move on and now, this series has given me the urge to also go back and work on another huge backlog of shots from 2010 back to something like 2004 when I first started digital photography.

A real dilemma - something should have to give: either the posting or the work on my unhandled photos. And also, once this crazy pandemic is over, I would like to go out in the world again, while I am still agile enough, there is still so much to discover and capture, including seeing and capturing the you life of our grandchildren growing up over in Europe. I guess I will just slug along, trying to work on all ends simultaneously - boredom is certainly not factored into my life for the next 20 years (I am 77 now!). Thanks for reading through this lengthy message - and keep well over the coming weeks and months. Joe
