Another one from the ‘Underground’ series. I remember when editing these images soon after I took them that this one didn’t even get test printed. Just goes to show that it’s all very well taking good images, unless you’re also skilled at editing them they may end up being neglected or worse deleted. Just as well I was only shooting film back then.
I spent about eight weeks in Brazil, five of which were in Salvador. Rio may have the glamour for the carnivals but it’s in Salvador where carnival season is much more down to earth and open to everyone joining in.
Heading down to Oxford Street for the January sales? Why waste your money on tat that will become worthless by the time you bring it home when you could snap up this little classic from 2002 that can only go up in value. And at 58% off the rrp you can’t go wrong. Hurry while stocks last.
I am very wary of the critical value of images containing attractive women, all too often the dullest images of said women get unwarranted attention from other images that deserve it more. And so it was when I posted this one on Flickr when it quickly gained over a hundred faves. I am very grateful for all the positive comments this picture received but there were others who were equally perplexed by its popularity and drew the conclusion that it was just another picture of an attractive woman. Fair enough, I personally don’t see this one as being one of my best but then who am I to judge what other people should like when seeing photographs.
