Most liked pictures of 2014

This is the fifth year where I look at the most popular milonga.be photos on Flickr. From this year onwards you will also see pictures of other photographers in the list. Thomas “TC Photos” has started contributing to the collection, and there are also pictures by Chauveau Photography in there. If Claude, Jean-Pierre and Nizar get in there too, we will have the finest selection of photographers of any tango city. I also take less pictures in Belgium, so the help is welcome.
The winner this year is a photo at Festivalito this summer of Sonja and Sven, the organisers. For the rest, some photos of the Brussels Tango Festival, from the visit of El Flaco and from the kiosque. Enjoy!
