A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
AUGUST 2005: Primary colors
This picture has become one of my favorites in 2005. A composition which I might not easily meet again. A blue VW Beetle, a yellow Skol chair, and a red Brahma beer cooler. This local bar has its terrace on the pavement. For me, it was interesting to notice the brand ‘Skol’, which ceased to exist in The Netherlands decades ago. The name ‘Skol’ refers to the Scandinavian word for ‘cheers’. It is said that Vikings used skulls of their enemies to drink their beer; hence, the strong resemblance of the word with the English word ‘skull’. By the way: the beer cooler has the Brazilian nickname ‘camisinha’, which may be translated as a …. beer condom.
