Ushuaia might be the end of the world, but a kid's world is exactly the same as in Northern cities. They bear with the freezing temperatures much better though and I must have looked like an Eskimoo to them.  (click on pictures to enlarge) Leica M9 with 35mm Summilux Asph at F1.4, 1/15000, ISO200 Leica M9 with 60mm Hexanon at F2.0, 1/750, ISO200 Leica M9 with 35mm Summilux Asph at F1.4, 1/350, ISO200
