Photographer's Note

I'm afraid a note I initially posted disappeared after a few hours. I believe there is a problem on TE.

This is Copacabana Beach, one of two magnificent beaches of Rio de Janeiro (the other is Ipanema). On the late afternoon of January, I took a stroll down the beach and chose this backlit photo to post because of the steam on the horizon.

Rio has a reputation for crime. I personally did not experience any problems, but several times I was approached by strangers admonishing me to hide my watch and my camera. I put my watch in my pocket, but, like any ardent photographer, I kept shooting the scenery. Volleyball, foot volley and paddle tennis are popular on the beach. Women's bathing suits, g-strings, are likened to dental floss.
