The fabric of Rio, its texture - what makes the streets, the air, the people unique, is the weave of Sky - Sand - Salt and Sea. Life in Rio evolves around this combination of visual and aesthetic textures. Ipanema beach encased in mountains, rocks, grand hotels and people, sparkles with shades of gray green and deep blues, reflecting the sky and sun.

'My Town' Friday Shoot-out / Texture
Palm trees showing their age with rings of growth, leaves from the fig trees that line the side streets tugging at the grass, and public art all add dabs of yellow and greens. Kiosks selling beer, water and sodas in bright reds and yellows break the pallet of buff colored sand and drab browns of the rocks. All theses impressions of color please the eye saying 'we are Rio'.
