Photos from the favelas
    #3108885 - 09/08/04 06:03 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Tourist in Rio gives out disposable cameras to children of the Rocinha favela and promises to get them prints when they return them.



There are some nice photos and although many are of the kids and their friends (which I think are charming too), you kind of get an unofficial tour of their neighbourhoods.

Some of my faves:




--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

I really like the sun-washed second-to-last 2.
And the first one.

Clever idea, creative insight to the culture...
