River of January in January

Rio de Janeiro. Mix of camera & phone shots. I'll leave you to figure out which are which!

Impressive set of photos. Enjoyed it very much. Can't see what images were shot by phone or camera, all are good.

Amazing shots! Some of the best I've seen of Rio. Are those arial photos from a helicopter?

Rio is one of those cities that are just absolutely mind-blowing. A must see at some point in your life.

Amazing shots! I'm assuming it's mostly the street level ones from your phone - regardless looks great though.

It all looks good. Can't complain too much about whatever phone you are using in the mix.

Nope. Just shot from some of the various viewpoints around the city, like Sugar Loaf Mountain, Corocovado, Duque de Caxias, and our roof.

Pretty much. Between the heat, the rain, the beach, and the crime, I usually only lugged my camera gear along if there was a specific destination in mind.

I'm stunned! You must have a damn good camera lens (as well as a good eye!). Thanks for sharing.
