Ipanema

Besides safety issues, a much needed break from photography and Ipanema/Copacabana being a recurrent topic within photography, I purposely decided not to bring any of my equipment with me. It was a tough decision to make, but a good one in the end. I actually refreshed my mind and came up with new ideas. Also, you can’t really beat Martin Parr’s series on Rio’s beaches.

So my wife and I were comfortably installed in foldable sun chairs, sipping fresh coconut water, when a bunch of kids arrived with their body-boards. I couldn’t resist much longer and asked my wife if she had her point-and-shoot camera. Luckily she did, so despite all of the above and accepting the risks of venturing in “cliché territory”, I went on and snapped a couple of shots.
