Photographer's Note

I took this one of the town of Embu das Artes, in the periphery of Sao Paulo (I have already commented on that place in my previous posts here and here.

While looking at the shops, that trio of waiting ladies attracted my attention. I have found this kind of figures in southeast / northeast Brazil and they usually are placed on windows of antiques / artisans shops.

In this case (at least for me), the difference was that the ladies were sitting at a table… waiting. Since the space was very cramped, I finally ended using a focal length longer than I would liked, also, in terms of PP, I added a little gaussian blur before resizing.

As I have mentioned in related posts, this little town’s atmosphere have made it one of my favorite weekend escapades. In the workshop photos (bonus) you will find two more views of the village.

Hope you enjoy them!
