"More than 200.000 people in the opening march!
There were artists on the street in front of a blue planet carried by many hands. The social and popular movements, the unions, the NGOs. And many other faces and nuances. Turbans, indigenous hats. Indians cloths. Blue eyes, fair skins, the expression of the black consciousness. Flags like the rainbow colors. Diversity."

Just before the opening march,
I came to do this photo,
and he said to me modestly,
"hey, I'm not a movie star!".

I think he is much, much better!

He is one of my favorites.
Leornardo was another great expositor.
Lose some few minutes in his site...

Yes. The WSF happened right here.
We had amazing warm days, really hot and dry.
Very heavy when you have to walk miles every day and carry camera's stuff. But we were gifted every day with unforgettables sunset.

What kind of love is that?

Is what the poster says.
There was a group of fiancés asking about love,
and domestic violence. Great performance!

This ladies are spiritual guides in Brazil.
They could stop the time around, when
relaxing, at the end of the march.

Thinking I almost could hear my heart
beating whileI made this photo.
