222: Strange cloud
JANUARY 2009: Strange cloud
I was walking around in downtown Belo Horizonte on a sunny Saturday. I had just left Praça da Liberdade behind me. One week ago, in this square, Christmas decoration was still there, and attracted thousands of visitors each day. Many townspeople went out with their families to take dozens of snapshots for their digital family album on the Internet, especially in Orkut and Facebook. At weekends, I enjoyed much to make long walks through downtown Belo Horizonte, and most of the time I was to be found between the bus station and the Savassi neighborhood. There was always much to see, and I had my camera within reach. When I was walking in the direction of Savassi, something strange above me caught my eye. It was a long, luminous stripe. Most likely, it was a condensation cloud from an airplane, which must have flown shortly before. The strange color can be explained by the low sun in the late afternoon.
