AVENIDA 23 DE MAIO - UMA AVENIDA PAULISTANA!
TRÂNSITO PAULISTANO! AGORA OLHANDO DO OUTRO LADO, PARA O NORTE, SÓ QUE DESTA VEZ NA VERTICAL!
PARECE CALMO, MAS NÃO O É!
MAY 23RD AVENUE - AN AVENUE OF THE CITY OF SÃO PAULO!
THE TRAFFIC IN SÃO PAULO! NOW LOOKING TO THE OTHER SIDE,TOWARDS THE NORTH, THIS TIME A VERTICAL VERSION!
IT LOOKS CALM, BUT IT'S NOT!
It was taken almost 3 years and a half ago, in a bright and sunny summer day! One of the main avenues of that city that links downtown to the southern districts, including the domestic airport of CONGONHAS.
Traffic in SÃO PAULO and in all big brazilian cities (nowadays in many medium size cities as well) is getting worse and worse. In spite of some advances as to subway systems, mass transportation developments with more modern buses and trains, with special lanes for the first ones, improvement of awareness through media campaigns and so forth, still not enough for the immense amount of cars put into our streets in the last years. Traffic jams and worse, terrible car accidents (all types of vehicles together with bicycles and pedestrians), are getting more and more common everyday, with lots of horrible results such as death and terrible injuries! Together with road accidents, we have more people killed or injured for this reason than in many wars that are happening today around the globe. It's one of our national wars! Lack of education in all levels, severe penalties for those who are guilty in commiting those types of crimes and so forth are two of the many reasons for that tragedy! Well, I had to write that down...

The solitary motorcycle sticks out like a sore thumb amongst all the cars. I like the framing offered by the trees and the light and colours.

another tantalising image of this bustling metropolis. A real sense of movement here and a fascinating perspective. Despite the traffic there seems to be very little air pollution as the clarity is superb.
Have a great weekend - Brian.
