Photo of the Week – Rio De Janeiro

Beach Balls – Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

An early morning stroll on the beach in Rio provided a unique scene  – calm.  Rarely do you find the beaches in Rio de Janeiro empty, except in the early morning.  This beach ball vendor sat and waited patiently for customers to show up, enjoying some peace and quiet.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! It’s a shot I took early on as I was still taking photography classes – but it remains as one of my all time favorites!

  12. What a lovely bictures – I love those beach balls – but what happens to them at the end of a day at the beach? They look too big for everyone to be taking home
