Winter in Rio

The beachs of Leblon, Ipanema and Arpoador in the carioca's winter.

Praias do Leblon, Ipanema e Arpoador no inverno carioca.


Look out the surfer jumping from the rock and trying to catch a wave. This point of the beach is hard to surf. Listen to the sea roar in his fury of winter.

Reparem no surfista pulando da pedra e tentando "pegar a onda". Este ponto da praia é o mais difícil de surfar. Ouçam o mar rugir sua fúria de inverno.


  1. Oh the beaches! Wish I could magically transport myself there during Minnesota's snowy winter!

  2. Winter,- means something different here where I am living!;-)
    It looks very nice! Lucky you!

  3. lovely shots of the blues!

  4. It is full of people, nice:)


Thanks for your comment!

What about the weather?

Who, where or when?


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?
