Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #51: Unique

Amy is inviting us to join this week Lens-Artists Challenge #51 “Unique”

Last Sunday I went to a Capoeira Festival in Bern and I really enjoyed it. The capoeira was brought to Brazil by slaves. The capoeira is a blend of dance and martial art. Two opponents face each other within the roda—a circle of capoeiristas (practitioners of capoeira)—emulating in a stylized manner the strikes and parries of combat, in time with the rhythms of a small musical ensemble. The ensemble typically consists of one to three berimbau (struck musical bows), one or two atabaques (single-headed, standing, conical drums), a pandeiro (tambourine), an agogô (double bell), all of which accompany call-and-response songs, usually led by one of the berimbau players. Its characteristic acrobatic moves and whipping leg gestures create a spectacle of excitement and danger. (Britannica)

In 2014 the Capoeira Circle was added to  UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the convention recognized that the “capoeira circle is a place where knowledge and skills are learned by observation and imitation” and that it “promotes social integration and the memory of resistance to historical oppression”.(Wikipedia)

For me this dance/art is unique in the world.

This is my submission for Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #50: Trees

I apologize for the delay of the post because I had connection problems (internet).
I am going to put submerged trees due to the construction of one of the biggest dams that even buried a small village (Aldeia da Luz) was completely rebuilt on a new site.

Lens-Artists Challenge #48 – WILD

For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, Tina choose “Wild”

First I want to apologize to my followers for this long absence. I hope to be more active.

For the challenge I choose a Tiger (the best for me) from Zurich Zoo. It is a beautiful Zoo with gorgeous view of the nature and wildlife. There are a lot of animals, like peacocks, lions, tigers and so on.
