Congresso Nacional à noite-National Congress Building at Night

Congresso Nacional from Behind
Fireworks in the Distance
While trying to find something to photography on a cold and lonely night in January, well it wasn't exactly cold. I decided to photography the National Congress building from a different angle. So, while fumbling around with my tripod to set the shot up I saw some firework going off in the distance and was able to capture them in these two photos adding a little sparkle no pun intended to these images. I was caught off guard by the firework seeing how there was nothing special going on this night.

Dois Amigos-Two Friends



Pedro in a Guava Tree near his home

Guilherme happy to be picking Guavas 

While walking along a not so well worn path I stumble across these two young boys who where perch up on a Guava Tree or Goiaba Tree in Portuguese.  Pedro top and Guilherme bottom, they offered me a sample of this most delicious fruit and between the three of us I think we strip the poor tree clean of all it offerings that why I don't have a photo of the fruit, all gone. However the good news is Brazil, produces more guava that any other country. See you boy next time around and thanks for your hard working in picking all those guavas for me. I think I need to learn to make Guava Paste or Jelly for next year.
