MARCH 2007: Purple flowers
In March 2007, I had to replace my Sony camera for a Canon. The old camera, good for more than thirty thousand photographs and several thousands of kilometers of travel, got a serious problem with the lenses and the shutter. I went to several locations in Belo Horizonte for testing my new camera: the ZOO, Botanical Garden, Mangabeiras Park, the Ecological Park, and the Municipal Park. I took hundreds of photos of plants, flowers, animals, and landscapes. The results were very satisfying! One day, I was in the Botanical Garden, which is part of the ZOO in Pampulha District. I had the luck that many plants were flowering. Like the purple flowers on the photograph above; I had to aim in the air, the result seemed to be overexposed. With some slight digital modifications, without modifying the composition, I had managed to retrieve a clear and colorful picture.
