Boa Viagem

This is a photo from my recent trip to my home-city, Recife, in Brazil.
The beach shown in the photograph is Boa Viagem, which literally means "Nice Voyage".
Boa Viagem is several kilometres long, and lined almost entirely the whole way by towering skyscrapers.
Some parts of the beach are often crowded.

Picture and photomanipulation by me.

Dude, that's my hometown too! I don't speak any Portuguese and I live in the US now, but I still love being able to say that I'm a Brazilian from Recife. Anyway, thanks for the shot. Pure sweetness! :clap:

Não é tão bom em Português e deu aulas no Japão. Modest man. And you’re not thin: it’s genetics.

wow do you have a wide shot lense or did you just crop it that way?
RazorICE's avatar
Cropped, it extended up showing the top of one of the skyscrapers in the background.

Gives a nice effect! If you had a wide view lense I'd have to kill you though =P
Without one I think I could on get wide shots with my tripod and slowly edge it along and blend the photos together in photoshop...I've never tried it though
RazorICE's avatar
I'm sure I've got a wide lens somewhere...
Pillowthesheep's avatar
well I just got a digital slr so as soon as I have some money I'll be investing in a light weight tripod and some lenses wahoo!
RazorICE's avatar
And how soon will that be? =P
Pillowthesheep's avatar
As soon as I get off my lazy butt and get a job :D

Cool. It gives a good idea about how long the beach is. I like the idea, that you leave the people coloured.
RazorICE's avatar
Heh, thanks :D
Long time no see eh =P
