Vitória, Brazil

2009-10-15 9

Vitória, the state capital of Espito Santo, is a city full of colors, excitement, and lots of people.

Located on the eastern coast of Brazil, Vitória is a port city of Espirito Santo. Thanks to the beautiful beaches its a huge tourist spot in Brazil with towering hotels all along the coast of Vila Velha. The beach is very pretty, but I prefer the inner workings of the city watching people go about their daily lives.

Fresh fish and crabs from the mornings catches are sold on street corners and plenty of fresh fruits, such as pinapples and coconuts, can be found hanging from the trucks of wandering venders. All the food is wonderful (except for the combination of ketchup and mayonnaise that they put on their pizzas). The more common modes of transportation are motorcycle and bicycles, but be careful because they drive really crazy there!

I must say that my favorite part about this city, and Brazil as a whole, is the beautiful array of colors laid out in front of you. The buildings, clothing, cars and just about everything are colored with beautiful blues, reds, oranges, yellows and greens that are just spectacular. My one regret was not packing some slide film to be x-processed!

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

    The Beauty of Black and White

    A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
