Rio, the beach, and Life Magazine

In this post I told how I was trying to convince Nico to make a trip this March. Guess what? I did it! Later today we’re going to Rio de Janeiro for the next 10 days, along with my sister Espe.

 I’ve always wanted to go to Rio, the Marvelous City everyone falls in love with. And as we’re so close to Brazil, then why not, right? I’ll tell you everything about our trip when we come back, but in the meantime, here are this 50’s photos from Life Magazine.

 I love Life’s photos. Either posed or candid, they all have something special that I don’t think is seen today in massive photo journalism. They have a particular way of telling a story.

Well, I better go and finish packing! Tomorrow, se Deus quiser, I’ll be dipping my toes in the sand of Ipanema, listening to Nico play the ukelele, ha! 😛
