MAY 2008: Church water mirror
The tiny blue St. Francis Church at Lake Pampulha in Belo Horizonte is one of the favorite spots for tourists and photographers. The church, designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer, no longer serves as the location for regular masses, but merely as a small museum with religious art pieces of famous Brazilian artists. The curved shape of the church roof, the tiled wall telling the story of Saint Francis, and the separate tower provide a lot of inspiration for photographers. In my case, I was lucky to be there on a cloudless day with almost no wind. At the time of the picture, I stood at the other side of the lake, and zoomed in on the mirror image of the church, which was reflected in the water.
