Faces of Brazil
These are a few of the people I met while in Rio this week. I have no problem taking posed pictures and often get better shots than when I have snapped unsuspecting subjects. There is a story that goes with each picture, but it is my purpose is to remember these faces and share stories later and today to just appreciate the diversity in this culture. Also the lady in the background of the third picture, I found incredibly striking. She shows many of the characteristics of indigenous people, but seemed reluctant to have her picture taken.
I am looking forward to sharing pictures from my new location, Santarem, a small river town on the Amazon, but am still working out kinks. Getting on line has been a little problematic and internet cafes are less than excited about using them to upload a ton of pictures. Also bear with me, blogger spellcheck is geared for Portuguese!
