On the afternoon of June 15, 2005 I went up to the observatory deck on the 35th floor of the Banespa Building in downtown Sao Paulo with my Canon Digital Rebel. Unlike the view from the Empire State Building, where the Hudson and East Rivers neatly frame Manhattan, the chaos and development of Sao Paulo extend, seemingly without limit, to the horizon. The buildings may not be as tall but the sense of non-stop activity is just as strong.

Other São Paulo Photos:

Trek Earth´s Sao Paulo Photos

Flickr Photos: Bdogde has photos of the Municipal Market and Pinacoteca do Estado. These two photos, one, two, show the Paulista/Rebouças interchange at night.

Sao Paulo Panorama, fairly high resolution photos from a German website.

Paisagems Urbanas Brasileiras, an extensive collection of photo albums. This one of Paulista at night is great.

My Blog

Lots of São Paulo photos from March - September 2005, and before that mostly of New York.
