RIO BRANCO: A GRINGO'S VIEW


IMG_4578 copy

I love making photos of what I see in Rio Branco. I say "making" photos because the intense overhead tropical light often seems to push the colors into a blur of brightness and sort of wash them out. But later, when I get to do the other half of photography in the computer it's the colors that stand out. Whether rough or polished, mundane or chic, the colors give Rio Branco its special vibrancy, revealing it as a garden of vibrating life that retains its glow even after dark.

So, here starts a little study selected from recent photos of what I see on daily walks. Some of the images are promising; some are not so great. Like I said, it's a study.
