A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
JULY 2006: In between
During the very long – more than 24 hours! – bus ride from Belo Horizonte to Salvador, I was staring out of the window most of the time. I kept my eyes open, and had my camera ready. For hours even, with sometimes minor interruptions, when I was dozing. Quite a number of rechargeable batteries were consumed by the camera; sometimes, I had to switch of the camera when it was getting too hot. The landscape in both Minas Gerais and Bahia was breathtaking, and seemed to alter every kilometer. I took hundreds of pictures that day. It was not easy to take them, since I had to take care of the focus on the subject and composition, and on details. The landscape was like an accelerated movie that was passing along you. I had to act quickly, in order to obtain some good shots. I was acting even faster, when a truck was passing the bus. I managed to photograph an open space between the truck and the trailer. I have to admit that this picture was some kind of a lucky shot.
