Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos, Brazil

Each day, I try to visit a new city. I’m not looking for beauty or ugly, for rich or poor. I’m not even looking for “local color” – I’m looking for a scene. One large picture, to put on Facebook. One small picture, to put on Instagram.

Today: Salvador, Brazil

A car overtakes the bus. Right in the middle of the scene, an electricity pole with a speaker. Two men seem to be holding hands in front of a turquoise phone booth caught between two benches. The men are looking over the street, something strange or loud must be happening there. To the right, a man is resting on the curb. The local restaurante has “dobradinha”, “frango ensopado” and “lasanha” on the menu. You can also rent the “espaço de festa”.
