Salvador, Bahia, Brazil

My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

Brazil | Friday, November 4, 2011 | 5 photos

I went to Salvador Bahía in Brazil one year ago and I discovered a wonderful place full of rituals, traditions and a huge black population. The city has an old area almost in danger of collapse where poor people live anyway and a new one less characteristic. This contrast is really amazing. Also, I saw the "bahianas", I was lucky and I got a picture where they weren´t smiling, because they are always smiling waiting for the tourists.
Then I went to a poor neighborhood and I saw all the lights in the evening trough the window. It was very nice moment, because all the people are great.
I love photography and I would like to become a proffesional photographer some day, that´s way I think this could be a once in a life opportunity and could change my life forever.
Finally I love nature and animals. At the same time as I have african descendant family in Brazil, I feel really close to these communities. That´s why one of my dreams is to visit Africa. Some day, some how...
