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 . Click on 'Brazil" in the upper right corner. I used 
Flash, but a simple HTML page is available too.

Comments are welcome!
