After a long time showing photos of NY here I back to Brazil to start my series of photos of Paraty. The photos are not my best ones compared with other I took in the past, but I was with dengue fever when I was there, so I have a excuse.
Paraty is a preserved Portuguese colonial (1500–1822) and Brazilian Imperial (1822–1889) town with a population of about 36,000. It is located on the Costa Verde (Green Coast), a lush, green corridor that runs along the coastline of the state of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. Paraty has become a popular tourist area in recent years, renowned for the historic town and the coast and mountains in the region.
Paraty is known for the cobblestone-paved streets throughout the Historic Center District. No cars or trucks are allowed in this part of town, only foot traffic or bicycles. Motor vehicles are only allowed in the Historic District on Wednesdays for deliveries. Horses and carts are a very common sight in Paraty and are frequently used all around the city.
Paraty has been able to maintain many of its historic buildings. Much of the architecture of the city has not changed for 250 years or more.

Sensational great perspective that gives this long street, very nice touches with bright chromatic colors of the doors, an image that has a nice medieval atmosphere.
Very good both luminosity, as the optimum sharpness.
Have a nice day.
