Photographer's Note

This is a typical view from Florianpolis, it is the symbol of the town. Herclio Luz bridge was build during from 1922 to 1926 and it has around 800 meters of way. It is closed in the last years cause it was damaged and it is being restored nowadays. At left side we can see the edges of Santa Catarina island and in the right side we can see the mainland. After the bridge we can see other 2 used to link the city with the mainland.
Florianpolis was founded in 1675 and was colonized by people from Azores islands. The island where it is located is famous cause its beaches and lakes. In the WorkShop you can another pov showing the bridge and an old portuguese fort used to protect the island against Spaniards.
