Asuncion, Paraguay is like a fading gem left in the jewelry box of South America and left to collect dust and to start caking in rust. It’s not that’s not beautiful, it’s just been left and forgotten. As if it has been tucked away in a corner unseen, or perhaps overshadowed by more beautiful jewels like Buenos Aires or Rio de Janeiro. But the truth is that Asuncion is well worth visiting and is actually one of the most interesting destinations in South America. The capital city of Paraguay is one of the many places in the region that has a beautiful ability to allow people to use their imaginations and think back to what it must have been like in the days it thrived.
The photo above was taken at a church in the old town of Asuncion. It will go down in history as one of my favourite places in South America to shoot urban photography.
