  1. Very interesting looking tree. I've never seen that colored bark before. Clever perspective.

  2. Stunning! A real winner photo today. Bravo to you!

  3. Yes, Laurent! This tree was in the garden of Moreira Salles Institute, a cultural center near the Tijuca Reserve, where is the Redemptor Christ.

  4. I love the smooth bark and how it twists up to the heavens. Great shot. I live in Bermuda and I imagine that we grow some of the same plants. Of course, I have never seen that tree!

  5. It is amazing! I like its smooth bark!


Thanks for your comment!

We walk by the streets of our city and very often we don’t realize its images, which are there and which suddenly are not any more.

To photograph and glance is to guard images, impressions. It is also to re-discover the space where we live, our imaginary and scenario of our lives.

Our glance is not enough. It is necessary that others look what we see.

Andamos pelas ruas de nossa cidade e muitas vezes não percebemos suas imagens, que estão ali e que de repente não estão mais.

Fotografar e olhar é guardar imagens, impressões. É também redescobrir o espaço em que vivemos, nosso imaginário e cenário de nossas vidas.

Nosso olhar não basta. É preciso que outros olhem o que vemos.

Who see me?

To whom?
