“#hellomynameis Clementina Altube (@clementinaltube). I’m 18 years old and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I love photography because I can share my subjective view of the world through an image; it connects you with other interesting people and helps you look at things outside your everyday reach. Photography is something I inherited from my dad — it’s his legacy. I’m in love with the pictures he took of my mum.

I was always drawn to the fine arts. I like composition, both visual and sound harmonies. When I was six, I got a classical guitar, and my mum taught me how to play. Now I play the piano, the guitar and the ukulele. Music is another healthy way for me to express myself.“


Picking up this pretty thing makes me want to reconsider if a Tele is really not for me. Never really got down to enjoying the sound of a tele, I have tried many, trust me, many, and I try to be as impartial as possible but hey, these guys just aren’t cutting it for me. Anyway, here are 5 great shots of a sweet guitar, one of the many I see on a regular basis, just thought I’ll share it with you guys, enjoy! If you do have Tele’s to recommend, or songs from great tele’s, do let me know, maybe I’ll get interested :)


Here’s something new - I have not seen one of these before.  Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster® in “Oxblood” with matching headstock.  The colour doesn’t come through very well in these photos but I assure you it’s lovely…and so different!  It’s MIM, and for roughly 800 clams Canadian  (if I remember correctly…) you can take it home.
