" If I could ever hold on a moment
I`d never let it go,
Never in a million years...
If I could walk across the bridge of time,
But I know, I'll never, never, never get the chance,
I'll never get a second glance..."

Thanks for stoping by!
I live in Florida, USA

Nothing like it nowhere else

"Have you been there?
What're you talkin' about, man?
I'm talkin' about Rio, Rio, Rio, Rio.
Any time, day or night, everything is so alive.
Nothing like it nowhere else.
It's a feeling that I've never felt.
Never stops, never ends.
It blows your mind just being there.
People dancing and singing loud.
People smiled as I walked around.
I felt so good, so I got down.
In Rio, Rio de Janeiro..."

    "Neloqua takes photos of Rio like nobody else. She created a lovely portrait of the city by composing her pictures very carefully and by choosing bold and vivid colours. Her work always inspired me and makes me going back to Rio in the future.
    Best regards from London

    Some time later, i can comment feebly and know that i must move on back to my world thousands of miles away. My world does not have the vibrancy that hers does :-)

    Thanks, N, for bringing your world around to us with such care and clarity.

    "Como explicar um encontro "estranho-sereno" com uma mulher que me recebe de bracos abertos?
    Abertos, voz suave, fala doce, olhos abertos, atentos, bonita-sorridente-delicada....Eu, capricorniana desconfiada-ja de tanto- e tao nova- levar pancadas da vida...sei nao...O que e que ela quer?
    Nada. Pelo contrario, veio se doar para mim, me vendo tirar fotos quis que eu fizesse parte desse pedaco tao importante da vida dela.
    Me convidou, aceitei.
    Depois descobri a paciencia.
    Depois descobri que dessa mulher doce e simpatica : simplesmente uma fera com unhas , dentes ,carne e peso na arte de fotografar...Me emocionou de tantas maneiras ao ver cada uma de suas preciosidades...Humilde..quem diria?
    Voce e maravilhosa...
    Eu so tenho de agradecer por voce ter entrado no meu caminho..quero aprender muito com voce...
    E, capturarmos juntas , como naquele po-de-sol (cada uma com sua mao e sua lente), muitos outros cenarios, situacoes...pessoas.
