Olinda, Pernambuco, Brazil

8 11 2011

After posting many pictures of Paris, France, it’s time to come back to my homeland, Brazil, but not exactly to my hometown, Sao Paulo.

These pictures I’m posting today are from one of the most beautiful Brazilian cities, Olinda, located at the Pernambuco state.

Olinda features a number of major touristic attractions, such as a historic downtown area (World Heritage Site), churches, and the Carnival of Olinda, a popular street party.

So if you’re planning a visit to Brazil, don’t forget to include Olinda to your plans.

Hope you like the photographs.

Château de Fontainebleau, France

5 11 2011

On this trip to Paris we passed through the Eiffel Tower, Opera Garnier , Louvre , Luxembourg Gardens and the Pantheon and the most beautiful Paris square, the Place des Vosges, at the Marais district.

Now is time to get a train at the Gare de Lyon for either Montargis Sens or Montereau, alighting at the little and charming Fontainebleau-Avon station, then take the ‘Ligne A’ bus destined for Les Lilas, alighting at the ‘Château’ stop. This way you will reach one of the most beautiful places in France. Forget about the beautiful but crowded Versailles. Fontainebleau is the place to go if you’re searching for beauty and tranquility.

Hope you like the photographs.

Some photographs of Florence (Firenze), Italy.

13 05 2010

Here’s some pictures of Florence, the historic Italian town wich was the cradle of renaissance art.

When you walk through the streets of this city you literally stumble in all forms of art, from its impressive architecture to some of the richest and famous museums of the world.

There’s no other place in our planet where you can see masterpieces of Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Giotto Di Bondone and many other art masters exposed on the streets, squares and bridges.



This is the Florence Cathedral, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, with its dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi. This picture was taken from the Giotto’s bell tower (Campanile di Giotto).


One of the many little and charming streets of Florence.



This is Florence, as seen from the Piazzale Michelangelo.



In this city you can spend an entire day just looking and photographing the facades of houses and stores.



And finally, the most famous landmark of Florence, the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge).

TIPS for Photographers: When in Florence, just photograph, no matter where do you point your camera, you certainly will catch something beautiful. =^)
Allright, this is not a tip, so here’s one: be sure to have a wide angle lens in your camera bag. Florence, just like many old cities, has very narrow streets, so the wide angle will help you to get the scenes without losing details of architecture like high windows, doors, archs and ceilings.
