TRANCOSO, BAHIA – After a day on the beach we spent the evening in town, a colonial village. The colorfully painted small houses around the long central quadrangle remind me of Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard, but they’ve mostly been turned into fully-priced boutiques. The town is nearly empty – vacationing Brazilians left the previous Sunday because it was the end of a school vacation – but we imagine that it would be much less charming when overrun with vacationers.
I had difficulty choosing an image – several were of interest. I chose this rather non-typcial view:
Leica M9 with 35mm Summicron pre-Asph. v. IV.
