Series on my trip to CURITIBA - The Capital City of the State of PARANÁ - The Southern Region of BRAZIL - From May 14th to 16th 2010 - # 017 !
CURITIBA VISTA DA TORRE DAS MERCÊS - OLHANDO PARA UM OUTRO LADO - A CIDADE E A SERRA (DO MAR) !
CURITIBA SEEN FROM THE MERCÊS TOWER - LOOKING AT ANOTHER SIDE OF THE CITY - THE CITY AND THE (SEA) MOUNTAIN RANGE !
CURITIBA is the capital city of the STATE OF PARANÁ and its largest one! It's in the EASTERN part of the state, pretty close to the sea (SOUTHER ATLANTIC OCEAN), but almost 900 meters above sea level (UP IN THE PLATEAU OF THE SEA MOUNTAIN RANGE/PLANALTO DA SERRA DO MAR), and for that reason it's one of the coldest cities in Brazil (certainly the coldest large one, the coldest capital city!).
It's grown a lot in the last decades and fortunately it has grown better than the other brazilian cities, specially with regards to its urbanistical planning!
A TOUR BUS passes by, every half hour, all the main touristical attractions of the city!
PROTESTS are taking place in CURITIBA too! They have started because bus tickets were raised once more and quality is the same: poor! But, then, they have spread out because police has been rude and all the problems people face can't be born any longer: bad public education, health care, security and so forth... yes, many brazilians love soccer, samba, beach and beautiful women... but we're not only that, we don't want to be only that... we're one of the wealthiest countries in the World and our population stills starves in some places... our cities are full of "favelas", known all over the World, many reasons why, but corruption, bad politicians, bad administration... gee, we can't put up with that anymore! The solutions may be so far away... the obstacles are innumerous... the problems are immense... but this may be the beginning of a new idea about ourselves.

Very nice panorama of this city; great composition and I like the tight crop of the sky. Equally interesting is the contemplative note that accompanies your picture.

one of your trademark images where there is so much to look at, and one that gives us a great idea of this city's atmosphere and setting. Protests seem to be gathering pace, just hope it can be a peaceful outcome.
Been watching the football on TV here and the passion and atmosphere are just so special.
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

I like the point of view here, and, more especially, the lighting and superb detail. It is indeed a very splendid city landscape beautifully captured by you.
Many things do indeed seem to be happening in Brazil at the moment. I just hope something good comes from all the demonstrations and the government doesn't simply stamp down on the people.

this is a very well composed and interesting picture with amazing depth and a wealth of details to explore. You have captured the dense and rich view with great clarity and wondering all over this unique cityscape is intriguing and delightful. The dark colours have a special allure and the blue distant mountains border and contrast the scenery in a lovely way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, take care,

da questa tua foto appare una città modernissima che immagino contrasti in maniera notevole con il territorio che la circonda.
Una grande selva di grattacieli domina la foto dando l'impressione di uno sviluippo essenzialmente verticale della città.
Una foto ben ripresa, piacevole alla vista che rende l'idea di quello che è la capitale dello stato del Paranà
Sempre complete e interessanti le tue note.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
