Little Souvenirs


Rio de Janeiro is a rather seductive city and it is tempting to stay with the clichés of beautiful beaches and tropical colours.  But within most neighbourhoods the visual is defined by tall buildings standing next to each other.

Essa foto representa o que é a vida na grande cidade.
Vive-se em gailas.
Adorei esse jogo de luz e sombra...perfeito!!!!

Local flavor encompasses the beautiful, and the ordinary.

Definitely like the image of Rio's beauty turned on its head.

Yes, I knew about the beautiful beaches and would love to visit one day, but hadn’t thought about the tall buildings. I like this interesting camera angle.
