Photographer's Note

A typical view from the "Pelourinho", the old square located in the historic center of Salvador de Bahia. That place was compeletely restored thanks to several years program and today it looks absoluelty marvelous.

It is quite a touristic of course but the place kept a charming flavour from the past especially because of the Baroque architecture and the steep streets paved with stones. When walking at night, one can encounter many typical activities like the women preparing the "Moqueca de Peixe" which is very tastys coco milk based mixture of vegetables and fish. One can see improvised concerts in different cafés close to that place. In fact, you always have great smells and songs escpaing from the windows above you.

Cropped, levels adjusted, USM applied.
