While in Brazil I got the opportunity to spend 3 days in Rio de Janeiro. To photograph the streets and lifestyle, I kept my photo equipment to the strict minimum: my Canon 5D MkIII and a Canon 50mm f/1.4. I wanted to go in the favelas to capture the people but I was strongly advised not to. I did go to Santa Teresa tho. For photographers (or other artists), I really recommend this neighbourhood ! There's a lot happening in the streets. I planned on going to the Corcovado but when I saw the queue, I just dropped the idea. Instead I went to the Pao de Acucar to enjoy the panoramic view on Rio and its sunset. Beautiful! Want to go out at night? Definitely go to Leblon !
