"Copacabana is the most famous beach in Rio de Janeiro and maybe even in the world. There is a famous boardwalk of more than 4km in length and was built in 1906 with stones shipped over from Portugal. In the 1970's, the Atlantic Avenue was expanded and the landscape design of Burle Marx was introduced. The energy of this place is perfect for running, cycling or simple to drink a coconut water enjoying the amazing view." Thank you to @otaviopavinato for the amazing insight!

The Niños that live in the mountains were adorable. The indigenous tribes all wear white. The boys were a bag across their chest and the girls wear necklaces. They hate their picture taken but they love eating anything and everything you give them!
🌎 Hôi An, Vietnam
📷@sbri_bri «Hôi An is the most charming town In Vietnam. It has its own uniqueness with the lanterns and the slow pace streets full of bike riding and tasty coffee shops. We spent days walking around the city with the camera ready to capture a bit of its culture, some simple moments to encapsulate its beauty»

Happy Monday, everyone! 🙋🏻♂️ Today I checked another ‘bucket list’ photo off my list:
I’d been wanting to take a photo of the Ferry Building with Alcatraz right behind it. I knew that the only way to get this particular shot would be to use a telephoto zoom lens while driving across the Bay Bridge. Not to mention I could only take it at a certain time of day to take advantage of the sun angle.
Anywayz, today @eopfell and I decided to give it a whirl: She drove my car from Treasure Island across the Bay Bridge to San Francisco three times until I finally got a shot I was happy with. 🤦🏻♂️📸 (I know - it’s ridiculous lol) The first two trips I shot while seated in my passenger seat but wasn’t happy with the results. Finally, on our third trip across, I decided to completely stand up on the seat and shoot through the sunroof. 😳
Definitely an adrenaline rush, definitely an urban adventure, and certainly a great memory!
(For those wondering why I didn’t just use my drone: Most drones don’t have a telephoto zoom lens - they are fixed focal lengths. It’s the telephoto zoom that pulls distant objects closer. Had I taken this shot with my drone - and I have tried it - Alcatraz would look really far away relative to the Ferry Building.)

I’d been wanting to take a photo of the illuminated red lanterns in front of the @westfieldsfcentre on Market Street. 🏮 I’d gone a couple of times but each time it was just way too congested with people and cars to take photos. So Plan B? I figured Sunday morning at 6:30 am would be as good a time as any. 😜
I headed out there this morning - It was practically a ghost town, minus the bus drivers, street sweepers, and restaurant staff setting up for breakfast.
I took this photo of the lanterns alongside the sidewalk in front of the Mall, but if you swipe left you’ll see another photo I took - this one with the lanterns and the Ferry Building in the distance. ⬅️⬅️
Speaking of which - I was delighted to be invited to shoot photos at the Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco this coming Saturday night. I’ll be hanging out near the broadcast tent, and roaming the parade route looking for some good photo opps. Needless to say, I’ll be sharing some of those images after the Parade!
Happy Sunday, everybody - I hope that your weekend was great!
