Here comes the sun...

Photo 1: I am starting out with a photo of me on Ipanema Beach in Brazil!.... and a separate photo of the beautiful, rain-covered Ipanema beach behind me. This is one of my favorite places on earth filled with a passion for life that fills the soul, a craving for music that seeps into every word and movement and of course... caipirinhas. What else do you need?

And here is the same image (minus me) of the amazing thunderstorm moving in and over the beach. The thunderstorm didn't seem to drive anyone to relative safety and shelter (as you can see), but just made beach goers scramble a bit tighter under their bright umbrellas. Nothing and no one was going to interrupt a day of celebration in Rio de Janeiro.


  1. Love this picture! really captures the beautiful scenery of Rio, rain or shine, or both in this case.

  2. You should know ;) It's my happy place...
