Here’s some pictures I’ve made at Anhangabaú Valley. The valley and its surrounding region are known as “Old’s Downtown” or “Historical Downtown”. In these pictures you can see some of the landmarks of the city of Sao Paulo, like the City Hall, the Viaduto do Chá and the Shopping Center Light.
The Anhangabau Valley is one of my favorite places in Sao Paulo downtown, with the Municipal Theatre at left and the Shopping Light at the background.
This one I’ve taken from the top of a building, you can see landmarks like the City Hall, the Viaduto do Chá (wich means Tea Viaduct) and the Shopping Light (a mall). On the background it’s possible to see the Italia Building, the higher skyscraper of Sao Paulo.
Another one from the top of a building.
Back to the ground, another view of the Vale do Anhangabau (Anhangabau valley), Sao Paulo downtown, Brazil.
And the last one of this set of images, one of the water mirrors that you can find in this region. At the center of the picture it’s possible to see the Martinelli building, the first skyscraper of Sao Paulo.
TIPS for Photographers: One of my favorite ways of documenting a place like this, a historical center of a large city, is to use a very wide angle lens and a narrow aperture. With this I can embrace an entire scene and tell the whole story in a single frame, with elements distributed from the foreground to the background. The narrow aperture gives me great depth of field and sharpness through all the scene.
