Trip Brazil with “a different light”

It’s a long time I don’t Post on DISTAX and I really thanks tidipalma to help me in this amazing adventure.

Here is the first part of a post related to a trip I did in the north-est area of Brazil (Fortaleza and Jericoacoara).

The first time I went to Jery was more than ten years ago and I’ve to admit that even if from that time it has grown a lot, still, it’s full of magic and maintain it’s relaxed rhythm.

In Jery  you spend the day reading an looking the ocean, the time becomes something less important.

I took many picture inspired by this Duna that year by year is becoming lower.

Amazing light on the main duna of Jery

The sunset is always something incredible and in Jery the people are used to say goodbye from the top of the Duna.

Leonardo Da Vinci was the first to make a schematic drawing of a bicycle. It was found in a 1540 sketchbook but there is no record he ever attempted to build one.

A French nobleman, Comte de Sivrac, is said to have built the célérifere (later called velocipede) in 1791. It had no forks and so could not be steered in the normal way but still can be considered like the first modern bike.

Nowadays around 130m bikes are produced in the world. Over the 60% of them are made in China.

Here is a picture of Fiore trying to figure out how to get to that one.

Tis-sa-ack

_DSC1630

The Ahwahnechee used to call it Tis-se’-yak (Face of a Young Woman Stained with Tears). Some others Native American  Tis-sa-ack (Cleft Rocks). I’m talking about the Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. This granite dome has an elevation of about 2.700mts and the crest rises more than 1.400mts above the valley floor.

The legend tells about an old Indian woman and her husband that were turned into granite by “The Great Spirit”. After a long journey, the lady drank all the water from the lake leaving the man thirsty and angry. A noisy fight started out and “The Great Spirit” lost his temper.

The lady’s head is the Half Dome.

Here’s a puctrure from the Glacier Point.

Take care and remember…

Hello everybody!

Looks like it’s been a while since the last pic was uploaded on this blog!
Well, apparently Distax got pretty busy in the last couple of years, moving around the world chasing what Chris McCandless called the “20th century invention”. Or maybe not. I may be wrong. He might have been busy trying to keep up with love which in this case has the beauty, the joy of living, the sweetness and the carioca accent of Beta.

Before introducing myself, let me thank Distax for giving me the chance to upload my pics on his blog and Beta for her incredible enthusiasm over motivating us to keep up to date this blog.

I took this picture while on a road trip to Baja California Sur. It was august and even if it was about to get dark, the temperature was still high (well over 30°C). I was driving on the Ruta 1 when I noticed this beautiful orange atmosphere over the desert and cactuses.

I was almost forgetting… About myself. I am not a photographer. I am just a guy that takes photos around and would like to share them with you and maybe get feedbacks/thoughts/whatever.

See ya!
