The poles are used, in Recife, for pasting publicity posters. In this pole, there is a poster of Veronica: she reads cards, tarot and whelks. It´s a farse for fools. The other poster advertises a course of repairing cell phones.
The facade of Boa Vista Market. The building was built in the early XIX century to be a slaves market. Nowadays, there are stores selling cereals, fruits, greens, vegetables, fishes, and bars with food and drinks.
This is the courtyard of the Saint Peter's Church in downtown of Recife. The courtyard and the church forms a very beautiful and rich architectonic group. There is an inscription above the church's door indicating the construction began in May, 3, 1728.
Hair clips. I love these hair clip packages. The whole design is naif, ingenuous. The name of the product is something like "what a big clip!" in a very coloquial use of portuguese, and the woman has a clip in her finger. Very funny I think. the packaging also states that the clips have protective bubble in the tips.
This is the Santander Cultural in the most ancient neighborhood of Recife. The poster shows a picture of Paulo Meira. There is an exposition of his artworks there. In this photo, I liked the mix among ancient building, modern building and contemporary art in poster.
This weekend I travelled by bicycle to Bonito, a countryside town in the Agreste region of Pernambuco, around 140km from Recife. Agreste is a narrow zone of transition between the coastal forest and the semiarid backland that we call Sertão.
Bonito means beautiful, that was the way hunters exploring the forests around the hamlet of São José dos Bezerros named the area after seeing it's streams of clean translucent water.
There are many waterfalls in Bonito, this one is called Véu da Noiva, that means Bridal Veil. Both Bonito and Bridal Veil are somewhat common names for towns and waterfalls respectively in Brazil.
