Aterro do Flamengo – Rio de Janeiro


Monumento aos Mortos da 2ª Guerra Mundial


Quiz dar à foto esse ar trágico, carregado, de uma Guerra, com todo seu drama.


Esta música, “Over There”, é de uma série da tv, embora a série seja ambientada no Iraque dos dias atuais e nosso monumento homenageia a memória dos nossos soldados mortos na Segunda Guerra Mundial, acredito não haver diferenças entre as guerras. É sempre a mesma tragédia, a mesma estupidez humana, a mesma insensatez e insanidade que, infelizmente, a cada ano, parecem em maior escala.


É muito bonita e triste a música.

Aterro do Flamengo – Rio de Janeiro


Memorial to Dead`s Second World War -

Unknown soldier


I wanted the picture to have a tragic and belicous atmosphere with all its drama.


This music, “Over There”, belongs to a TV series, although so that series is environment in Iraq of the current days and our monument to pay homage to the memory of our soldiers died in the World War II, I believe not to have differences between the wars. It is always the same tragedy, the same one human being stupidity, same foolishness and insanity that, unfortunately, to each year, seems in bigger scale.


It`s a very beautiful and sad song.


“Over there”


The day is comin',

The drums are drummin',

If you know one, say a prayer.

There's mothers cryin',

And fathers sighin', a-huh,

War is in the air.

The trains are fillin' up with boys,

Who've left behind their favorite toys,

They're goin' over there, over there,

Where someone has to die.

Over there, over there,

Where ours is not to reason why.

Over there, over there,

Where someone has to die.
