Conservatoria

January 28, 2009

Conservatoria is a small village in the mountains about two hours from Rio that has a lot of history and music to boot. Also, comfy vacation resorts draw big city dwellers to this village for some peace and quiet. Having experienced the cushy resort life for a few days, I took a walk down a dirt road to capture some of the local flavor. After returning to NY, to my complete intrigue, I have learned that conservatoria is apparently a prime point of observation of OVNIs in Brazil. In portuguese that stands for Objecto Voador Não Identificado translation in inglês – Unidentified Flying Objects._ret0187_ret01961_ret02072

Daisy was a beautiful and affectionate soul. Daisy loved to pounce and chase like all dogs do, but most of all she loved the dirty pond in the backyard. Especially after she was given a bath and she smelled like flowers, she went right after those big fish in the pond and came out smelling like a dirty wet daisy dog. Three years ago in the winter time, Daisy decided to say good bye. This post is for her.

Pizza pie moment

This  is a popular beach game in Rio called Footvolley. A sport created in brazil in the mid 90’s. You can only use your feet, chest or head to play the ball, no hands. I couldn’t help but notice how perfectly symmetrical these boys divided themselves up, catching a dead centre football in the midst of it was like getting a cherry on your pie. _ret00683

Water

January 22, 2009

I just returned from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A city full of people that embrace water like champions. I returned with delicious memories of incredible food, friendship from locals that will make you want to migrate in a heart beat and music that will turn your heart into a Cadbury cream egg. This image is one of my favorites. It attempts to capture the relationship between *Carioca’s and agua.  (A Carioca is what a local/native from Rio De Janeiro is called).

I have been in my apartment for two months now and at a particular time in the evening I can see the light do this from the kitchen window in my apartment. The light stays like this for a short period of time but with a little patience and some luck from the photo gods I got a little seagull to pay my picture a visit.
