Dear Luggers, During our recent stay in Brazil we made lots of digital photographs. I myself used the Leica M7 too, with mostly the 24/2.8 and 90/2 (APO/Asph). Making digipictures was fun. The instant visibility on the camera and the possibilities they provide when in your PC are great. Making pictures was the Leica was photo-fun of another kind. More precise, more patient and with no direct visible results. I tried to carefully match the colors on the screen to the originals, and Vuescan was a great help. Scanner: Nikon IV ED. We found Brazil welcoming and not unsafe. A great place to go. We weren't in Rio or Sao Paolo however, so we do not know the situation there. Salvador is a great place to visit. Also in the slides I provide some views of the Jezuit Missions on the borders of Argentina and Paraguay. Technically they are outside Brazil, but I have listed them in the album anyway. Interesting part of the history on the Roman Catholic Church! The photoalbum, with explanatory text, can be accessed through www.vanhulsenbeek.com . Click on 'Brazil" in the upper right corner. I used Flash, but a simple HTML page is available too. Comments are welcome! Sander van Hulsenbeek Amsterdam Holland Website: www.vanhulsenbeek.com Pictures: Mongolia, Argentina and more!
