Series on the State of SO PAULO - The State where I WAS BORN and where I've always LIVED - The SOUTHEASTERN REGION OF BRAZIL - #051 and Series on the City of SO PAULO (The State Capital City) #009 !



UM FELIZ NATAL PR TODOS, DIRETAMENTE DOS TRPICOS E BEM URBANO!
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL, STRAIGHT FROM THE TROPICAL AREAS OF THE PLANET AND A QUITE URBAN ONE!

This picture was taken in the sidewalks of the AVENIDA PAULISTA/PAULISTA AVENUE, the most famous avenue in the city of SO PAULO!
Lots of Christmas Decoration all over, all of them transporting us to the cold weather of the northern hemisphere!
But here, when I took this picture, it was so hot! Anyway, until we find another way of celebrating this time of the year, we keep on copying something that's truly beautiful, but that really does not go well with our kind of weather this time of the year!
Now that my childhood's gone, I feel pitiful for those old men dressed up like "Santa Claus" walking under the scorching summer sun of my Country! HE SHOULD BE FIT, MUSCLED AND BE WEARING SWIMMING SUITS!!! INSTEAD OF REINDEERS, WHAT ABOUT SOME DOLPHINS, A JETSKI AND A GIANT AND COLORFUL PLASTIC BAG FOR THE GIFTS!!! HO HO HO!!!!

ONE WS VERSION :
Same place, but a slightly different pov and composition!

ANOTHER WS VERSION :
Same place, but a totally different pov, showing other Xmas Decoration and people walking along the sidewalk!
