Favela Faces


I was drawn in by the sober look on this young man’s face.

This photo is made more dramatic by the fact that you only see part of the young face that she reveals above the vivid colors of her painting. I’d love a print of this.

Flickr user carf catches the innocence of the children of Rio de Janiero’s favelas in amazing ways.

Can you believe the color of those eyes? I guess that’s what they mean when they talk of “limpid pools”. Such a stunning color of blue, it’s almost unreal.

What a gorgeous smile.

The reflection in this child’s eyes is fascinating.

About megstar73

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?
