In January 1996, some girls saw in the city of Varginha a strange being, of low stature, with three horns. A few days later, lights in the sky and the presence of the army in town were enough to put the city in the headlines of all the world. 18 years later, the city's skyline shows this spaceship, and there are ET status and bus stops in the shape of spaceships everywhere. And this is my new home. Varginha, in the South of the state of Minas Gerais, is a great town to live, very well located, pleasant and with very nice people. Its main activity is the export of coffee, and the city has excellent bars and other leisure attractions. And here I intend to stay for long.

this structure is surely attractive, it enhances the legend that made this city famous. The "spaceship" is well placed in the frame but the framing looks abrupt, I think that with a more careful exploration of this view you could have avoided cropping some of the surrounding elements and would have rendered the composition more thorough. The sky looks dramatic and mysterious, the colours are sci-fi moody. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,
PS Our National Team is happy with the way it's been received in Brazil, many Greeks who live in your country have run at its side too. We are not happy with their performance and result in the first match though, let's hope they play better in the next two games:)

En effet, nous ne sommes plus seuls dans ce monde impitoyable ! J'ai beaucoup apprécié votre humour et votre note d'accompagnement.
Des êtres venus d'ailleurs qui se sédentarisent.
Image originale et bien présentée.
Très bonne journée.

I admire your courage to stay in such a place, hopefully you're never abducted for probing and research by aliens. :) I had never heard this story before, and once again TE has been a great learning tool. You've certainly provided an image which is right in line with your notes, and piques curiosity regardless of anyone's personal beliefs. You never know who's watching, right? :) Brazil is putting on quite a festive event right now, thanks for inviting the world into your home...it's been a wild ride already, yeah? Best of luck. Have a great one.

As laranjas continuam verdes, e desse jeito os discos voadores nunca irão pousar... Quando passei aí pela primeira vez, a nave não estava pousada. Agora sim a imagem deixa claro que ela realmente existe!

é, a cidade não era sequer mencionada antigamente, mas hoje em dia basta falar no lugar que todos sabem qual é. para o bem ou para o mal, ficou famosa.
bem bacana este detalhe urbano com o disco bem evidente, dando um toque de humor à atmosfera urbana.
feliz 2015 pro cê.
