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 - # 018 !
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.

Hi Hola dear Neyvan, how are you?
Great modren city view, the best exposure can creates this dramatic and poetic image with tyour high skills and inspiration.
I am afraid that some demonstrations occur in Recife.
Thanks a lot and have a good weekend!

I've always enjoyed pictures of urban sprawls such as this, and what a great view this is...almost a bit of a Honk Kong vibe with South American flare. :) So sad to hear of the current state of affairs, I sure hope it doesn't escalate any further or that things get destroyed out of protest.
Another solid composition, great idea to span the width of the frame with the high rises, while using the church in the foreground as a base leading back towards the mountains. A great deal of layered depth with this tight framing. Well done.
All the best,
