This is a little urban beach spot, called Mucuripe, located in the city of Fortaleza, the capital of Ceará state, where I reside now.

To remind my visitors, my intention here is to show the beauty I find when traveling around my country. It is a personal view, however informative and, I wish, inspiring.

Please bring your comments, questions or expectations about Brazil.

Cultural + Natural

Camocim, a small city in the Brazilian northeastern state of Ceará, shows a unique scenery where culture (the way sail boats are built) and nature (a river mouth, dunes and the sea) compose this view worth contemplating.

The Rain Forest

After 5 years living in the Brazilian southeast, I post this picture to represent the many colorful scenes I witnessed in the rainforest.

Besides the visual experience, sounds and smells are also presented to anyone walking a few meters into the woods, particularly in well preserved areas.

I hope being able to transmit the wonder anybody feels when in contact with such marvels of nature.

One more day: gone or coming?

The sun setting or rising is, maybe, one of the most common photo subject. For one thing this fact might be justified: it is different each day.

This shot was taken in Parnaíba, a promissing tourist spot in the northeast state of Piaui. There are many other natural attractions in that area, as the marvelous "Delta" (the estuary that forms many islands), but the SUN, rising or setting, is still the strongest natural appeal to human nature anywhere.

This picture was shot at a particular spot in the northeast. I had taken pictures of this plant before, during the dry season, showing completely different characteristics. Not only it changes according to the weather, but its flowers become totally distinct between its fresh blooming and last stages.

Impossible to say which stage is more pleasant to the eyes.

Daily Escape

This palm tree can be seen from my window. I am not sure how old this plant is, but it is an impressive six-story tall, and still growing, organism. It is my favorite city escape, in the actual sense of the words, even more when a gust makes this giant tilt a little and wave its leaves. Enjoy the view you too!

Deeply into the semi desert land of Ceará, a Brazilian state near the Equator Line, I came across this beautiful blossoming plant. It called my attention not only for the vivid colors contrasting with the monochromatic dry tone of the surroundings,

Amburana cearensis

but for the way it succeeds where most plants are in a state of stagnation, waiting for the raining season. It does send us a message of strength!
