Some photos from May. We went down to the coast of Sao Paulo and stayed in a house in the mountains by a beautiful river. I didn’t do any editing for these photos. I used my 24mm Nikkor perspective control lens. It creates the most amazing effects.
I went to a bar called Alto Harmonia with Tiago and Erik. You can see the a lot of the city from the roof area. The beer they brew is pretty terrible, but they do have some nice American beers and a good whiskey selection.
This part of the park was dying, drought has decimated some of the parks flora. There are many eucalyptus trees that are not native and require a ton of water. With Sao Paulo experiencing its worst drought in recent history the city’s green spaces have started to suffer. Reservoir levels are below 10% and the city is running out of time.
I spent a gorgeous afternoon with my fellow photographer Lou Gold at Parque do Carmo enjoying the annual Cherry Tree Festival (Festa da Cerejeiras). This was on our way through the park. It gets a lot more colorful. More Posts to follow.
