Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Fifa Headquarters, Zurich, 2007

Lately, this kind of landscape I can only see in my dreams!!!! So it sounded more than appropriate to pick this photo to join in the last-minute the Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy by Daily Post. I’ve been dreaming a lot about another trip to Europe. Since my son was born we didn’t have the opportunity to visit the Old Continent again, and once in a while I find myself looking at those photos again.

 

A Word a Week Photography Challenge: Fly

There is a long time since my last entry for  A Word a Week Photo Challenge. But this week’s word Fly, made me think about this photo I took during the World Cup,  when we were flying from Belo Horizonte to Rio de Janeiro, after watching Brazil x Chile game. Unfortunately the quality of the photo is not that good, because the plane window was a little bit dirty, but I can’t forget the beautiful sunset we were blessed to see during that flight. A sea of fluffly clouds and the beautiful sunlight made quite a beautiful show.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Signs

Tsunami – Evacuation Route Sign, San Francisco, 2012

I picked an old photo to join the Weekly Photo Challenge – Signs by Daily Post.  It was our family road trip in California, in 2012. Our first stop was San Francisco, and I remember how this sign remind me that we were just on the top of San Andres Fault.

Some days later,  when we were already in Monterrey, we experienced our first earthquake. Well, I really don’t have memories of this experience, because the right moment the earthquake happened my son and I were already sleeping. But my husband was awake and felt our hotel room shaking for a few seconds. When it was all over, he woke me up to tell what had happened. I got so scared that I couldn’t sleep that night.

For someone who had always lived in Rio de Janeiro, I’m definitely not used to this kind of geological phenomenon, and that’s why this street sign impressed me so much!

Have a nice week everyone!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Nighttime

2012-11-27 19.51.23After a long while, I’m  joining again Weekly Photo Challege by Daily Post. . This is my entry for this week’s theme,  Weekly Photo Challenge-Nighttime .

I took this photo with my cellphone last year for my apartment, when I used to live in Botafogo. Although the quality of the picture is not good, I love this picture, maybe because I miss so much this view.
