Brazil in Pictures

You ask for photographs, I give you photographs. Now you may have been thinking Brazil = pictures of beaches filled with hot bikini-clad women, but you really should know me better than that. Instead I give you:

Christ on the Mountain
Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro

Beach Debris
Ilha Grande

Boat passing in the twilight
Ilha Grande

Dry Salvages
Angra dos Reis

A Wilderness of Flamingos
Parque des Aves, Iguacu

The March of Progress
Itaipu Dam

Itaipu Dam

And just to prove that it wasn't all depression and gloom:

Iguacu Falls

I can imagine Werner Herzog narrate the story behind "Beach Debris": "This is what Man has done to the Ocean. And now we must prepare for the wrath of the starfish."

//So is Christ on the Mountain really as dramatic as everyone imagines it to be?

What camera do you use?

km: Love the Herzog take. And it is fairly dramatic - not so much up close, but more if you're flying into the city at night, and suddenly there's this shining dagger of light floating high above the city.

tr: Some things are best left to the imagination, no?

J'wock: hmm...Flamingo porn. A whole new meaning to deep throat.

Kits: Thanks.

Anon1: Nope. What for?

Anon2: Thanks.

Anon3: Nothing fancy. Just your ordinary everyday point and shoot Canon SD 1300.
