The old Perez watermill

A long time ago, a creek was feeding a grain mill, the old Perez water mill. As the city extended, the old mill became a park. It is located in the Malvin rambla, next to Alejandro Gallinal street. I posted on this mill a couple of years ago; it is a good place to exercise old film cameras.

The interior of the mill was once converted into a museum, and there were some cultural activities from time to time. Now the building is closed, and the old weathered doors are a twin image of neglect among graffiti.


The wagon is still outside, with its broken wheel and rusted metal.

During my photo expedition, a tourist tour came into the park. The tour guide told them the (true) story of the place being used for marijuana legalization meetings, before the weed became legalized in 2016.

Punta del Este, again

 A few from a weekend, a rare occasion for me. 

A seawolf owns this area in the harbor, at least when fish are being cleaned.

The gazebo marks the spot where the River Plate ends, or so I was told. 

The fishing boats are candy for the eye.

Church interior, with chairs 

The old lighthouse could be visited. We went upstairs, all of 150 steps in the spiral, and the final wood stair to the top. 

View from the top and manufacturer’s proud plate.

Thanks for looking!  All with Nikon F, various lenses, FP4+ in Beutler.

Back in photography

 The pandemic has eased down here, and things are slowly coming into the Tao groove again. 

A few frames for the blog, which is not forgotten.

Holocaust monument stones, near the River Plate.

Shadows on the garden bridge.

Self portrait on kettle. First picture after months of lockdowns.

Thanks for looking! Autocord all, except the last one, taken with old trusty Nikon F. FP4+ in Beutler, as usual.

It feels good to post again.
