Planaltina de Goiás

Me and my Best Friend.

Young mother with baby outside a class were they teach them how to be better mothers .
Bye for now and hope to see you soon!
They say, the best camera you have is the one you have with you at time. Such is the case in these photos. I didn't have time to grab my trusty 40D and speedlite so I had to make do with what I had...my ipad camera. Well, it actually was a good lesson for me in more ways than one. For one thing, at least I did have a camera with me and was still able to inter act with these kids and have fum with them, though I keep thinking I wish I had my regular camera with me. These photos are from kids who live in a poor community outside of Brasilia, Brazil called Planaltina. Where once a month a local church from Brasilia, goes and teaches them about God, prays for them, listens to their problems and distributes food to them. In Mark 10 vs 14 Jesus said "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them. For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. Amen. I guess I'll never grow up then.

The Savannas of Goiás

Sunset in the Cerrado
Typical Cerrado Tree against a Beautiful Sunset 
The Sunsets Slow in The Cerrado, Goias, Brazil. 
As the Sunsets on the Savannas in the State of Goiás, in Brazil, the heart of the Savannas or as they called it here "Cerrado." Here in the "Cerrado" the weather is always pleasant years round with a wet season ans a dry season. In a recent poll I took there was a 50/50 split on which people preferred the wet season or the dry season I for one was undecided. There are things about both season I like and dislike. The cerrado is not as recognized around the world as the Amazon, and I myself didn't know it existed until moving here almost two years ago. Well, gotta go now, it getting dark and the wildlife is starting to come out.

Dog Day Afternoon

Boomey & Sadie watching the boats go by at  Lago Paranoá, Brasilia, Brazil.
Boomey, enjoying a Dip in the Lake. 
Sadie, I love this Lake!!
Boomey and Sadie, these two are quite a pair together. They both love to run and and swim and never get tired.  And yes, when it's time to leave and come home Sadie, the ringleader, all of a sudden can't hear and heads back into the water with Boomey right behind her. Well, I don't blame them I love it out here too. Seems like there's just never enough time for fun in the sun.
