A cheap one from around the house

I think this picture of a nationalistic bar of soap really says a lot about life in Brazil. Exactly what that is, I don't know. Probably something more than the fact that they spell Brazil "Brasil." Let me know if you figure it out!

Hip Hop

Ok, last picture from Carnaval. There might be more interesting pictures and crazy costumes, but I'm getting tired of them, so our few readers probably are, too. But these costumes are great! Right? I'm sure there's a great history somewhere about how the carnaval costumes developed from elaborate to ridiculous. We're certainly in the latter category now.

A rainbow of Carnaval fun

In theory this ought to be a better picture than it turned out being, what with all the color and contrast and such. But we couldn't really move to a place where the composition would have wound up better, which is a pretty serious constraint on trying to photograph a parade from an assigned seat. Anyway, we have a few more nice carnival shots, and then we're going to try to move on to new territory soon. Our biggest problem at the moment is getting out with the camera. We get out sometimes, but now we carry so much baby stuff around that we don't always want to add a camera bag to the load. But for our adoring and dwindling viewing public, we will try!

Uh, More from Carnaval

Sorry, we should really move on. But we can't yet. So here are some portrait-style pictures of people in the same general section Carnaval parade.

Yeah, the guy in the middle is smacking himself on the ass for the camera. Good times.
