Merry Christmas!!

This year, we will be spending Christmas as always, with the family... But New Year's eve will be different: We rented a little house together with 4 other people on a beach that can only be reached by boat or 4h hike... It's all very basic, no electricity... no fridge, no ventilators... Just a lot of waterfalls and beaches...

I am really looking forward to it!!

So there will be no posts for a while.. I leave you with a special Christmas tree.

Once the tallest building

Yesterday I had to photograph an event. It was the 25th birthday of a company and they had a dinner at the Terraço Italia. It's a restaurant on the top floor (41st) of what was once Sao Paulo's tallest building. I had worked all day doing food shots so I was somewhat tired, but it was worth it just for the view. It's really overwhelming to see the city from up there. There is nothing past the horizon except buildings and more buildings! A real concrete jungle!

random thoughts

It's cold today. I don't like it.

I want to start painting again.

We are going to spend new years on a beach with some great friends in a place I've never been to. Can it get any better than that?

Yesterday, while cleaning the stove I realized I was exactly where I want to be. (not necessarily cleaning the stove but) Back in Brazil, trying to make it my home, living with my husband, in our own little place, (although not so little or our own yet) trying to make it as a photographer, even if still not quite there, but on the right track... Slowly making new friends, re-discovering this huge dirty, ugly, noisy, so very darn noisy, wonderful city....
Thinking about children but no yet, really not yet.
With still so many plans and wish lists and want lists...

This is where I want to be. This is where I am. Finally.
Thank you!

Back when I was living in Barcelona, I had an exhibition at the
Estudio Nomada A week or so ago they had a group show of projections on the ceiling of the gallery and I was asked to participate. Here's what I sent them... and here's a link to their site in case you want to see more:
