Award Winner | Photo of the Day | April 19, 2011
I was waiting for my flight at the Afonso Pena International Airport, in Curitiba, capital of Paraná, in Brazil. In front of me, there was this large window from where people often watch the airplanes landing and taking off. At that hour of the day the light was perfect for the contrast and clouds in the sky gave me my favorite blue tone. The people’s postures and gestures completed one of my favorite compositions.
