Photographer's Note

Another scan.
Varadouro is the name of the artificial channel between Baía dos Pinheiros, Paranaguá, northern coast of Paraná state, and the bay of Cananéia, southern coast of São Paulo state.
It was made by the man in 1956, separating a portion of land from the continent and so creating the artificial island of Superagüi. Its length is around 6 kilometers and it is around 50 meters wide, cutting the ground parallel to the ocean.
Today the region is protected by the National Park of Superagüi, protecting one of the most important remaider areas of Brazilian Atlantic Forest, and its endangered animals, like the black-faced lion tamarin (Leontopithecus caissara) and the chauá parrot (Amazona brasiliensis).
Crossing the channel, we pass by some little fishermen settlements, like this one. There are no energy in places like this, so most of them has their solar energy like you see.
This is a scan of an old slide.
