Photo Friday – Window in Rio

Old lady looking out of window, Rio, Brazil


This week’s Photo Friday is a street portrait I snapped in Rio de Janeiro one morning. We were visiting the Selaron Staircase at about 8am, before it was full of tourists, and I glanced up to spot this elderly lady peeping out between the shutters. The faded pastel colours and chipped paintwork were typical in the old neighbourhood of Lapa, where the steps can be found.

If you have a great photo from South America, send it to to see it featured in Photo Friday.
