A mirror to the past

This is the Praça Quinze, the heart of the city of Rio de Janeiro. We have already shown some pictures on it, but this seems interesting in joining the past and present in addition to interesting reflection on modern administration building in the city.

Esta é a a Praça Quinze, o coração da cidade do Rio de Janeiro. Já mostramos algumas fotos dela, mas esta nos pareceu interessante por juntar o passado e o presente, além do interessante reflexo no moderno prédio da administração da cidade.


  1. That's an awesome reflection! It's as clear as a mirror. And I love that what it reflects looks like old architecture too.

  2. I love the reflection on the building on the right....amazing pic....

  3. What a nice shot! I love the reflection especially of the sky :)

  4. linda foto! que prédio está refletido sobre o espelho do outro?

  5. It is an excellent technique so that the new architecture doesn't look too opposite to the old one.

  6. Wonderful angle on this, amazing mirror quality of the glass!

  7. One of the things I most want to see.


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?
