Pirulí at O'Donnell street

An spontaneous shot in O'Donnell street. It would have been better without the mini-bus there but, I've told you, it was an spontaneous shot. Stop walking-snap a photo-and walk again! ;)
A pirulín is a conic-shaped hard candy of about 10 to 15 cm long, with a very sharp peak in one end and a handle stick in the other... we had our own special pirulí, a 231-meters steel-and-concrete television tower.
Can you imagine a lollipop of that shape!?

Una foto espontánea desde la calle O'Donnell. Habría estado mejor sin ese mini-bus ahí en frente, pero oye, ya dije que era espontánea! Un de esas de parar 1 segundo, hacer la foto y volver a ponerse en marcha.
El pirulí es un caramelo duro con forma de cono que tiene un palito para agarrarlo con la mano (como el chupachups pero en cono)... Aquí nosotros tenemos uno de acero y hormigón de 231 metros que nos sirve como antena de televisión.
No estaría mal que fuese un poco más dulce de vez en cuando... ;)

cette tour de television est vraiment superbe, on pourrait croire que c'est un monument de la ville. on peut monter en haut ? il doit y avoir une superbe vue


this tower of television is really superb, one could believe that it is a monument of the city. one can go up in top? there must be a superb sight

Now I have learned a new word! Impressive building...I would not want to have been the one responsible for getting the top on straight (tee hee)

May I say this is a very good spontaneous shot! And the mini bus helps showing us daily bits of the city.

I have been busy and also planning my trip in July, but I managed to post another picture today with the help of a friend who actually took the photo!

Se ve desde muy lejos y es impresionante. Aunque ahora con las torres esas nuevas se quedará todo pequeño

Spontaneous is almost always best. And your photo today is very good with the bus.

Mira cuántos discos de satélite tiene esa torre. Lo que más me gusta de esta foto son los edificios con sus bellos balcones de hierro forjado y de cemento con columnas. Un piso en esa avenida debe costar una fortuna.

Incrível essa torre! Mas como Fénix, o que mais gostei nesta foto foi mesmo a avenida com os prédios e as sacadas de ferro. Muito verde também deixa essa avenida muito bonita!

i always do the stop walking and snap a photo thing to.

Actually most of my photos are taken like that :-)

The TV sure does have lots of transponders!

My dentist would have all sorts of objections! :)

Olivier, I guess we can't go there until we're working there.. that's a pity but it's not turism-open

Lavender, me neither! ;)

Carlos, la verdad es que sí... pero yo vivo un poco lejos de allí si que no lo veo a menudo y cuando lo veo me hace gracia... ;) Vaya lío!

Fénix, no lo dudes! Yo ni lo pregunto mejor, pero debe ser una paaaaasssssta. Es un sitio muy chulo

Per, dentist doesn't rule at all! ;)

Thank you everybody!!
