Paquetá Island

Paquetá is an island in Rio de Janeiro’s (very much polluted) bay. This island lives by a contradition bigger than you can imagine. It has no cars (you ride chariots pulled by horses, who btw leave an awful smell in the dirt roads) to preserve the fauna and flora, ok fair enough, but then, you have the most polluted water you’ve ever seen, with the cargo ships as a background.

In the middle of this crazy concept of preserving something that is surrounded by dirty waters, I was actually able to take some nice shots.

Enjoy.
